Without a shadow of a doubt- Kris Kobach’s Crosscheck would – AND DID – steal the 2016 election. It’s the great untold story. Yes, there was collusion- for instance Michigan’s Secretary of State admitted they purged “aggressively” – about 50,000 voters in a state Trump won by 10,700. Same sad story in Pennsylvania, Illinois and elsewhere.

They’ll use it again in 2018. Talk about Russians all you want, but if we don’t stop the purge of 30,000-60,000 voters in each of 28 states, the 2018 mid-term will be lost – and democracy will become a distant memory. You can’t have a democracy with a government that has no integrity. Palast has put in four years of intensive, hard-core investigative reporting to uncover their game.

Here’s the problem:
Update. Greg Palast filed (along with the ACLU and Rev. Jesse Jackson) Freedom of Information requests in every Crosscheck state to get the names of the voter victims of Crosscheck – the purged… and in the lawsuits that are sure to follow the stone-wall refusal of the GOP Secretaries of State. Rev. Jackson commissioned a special 1hr 13min version which he’s been showing in churches nationwide. The NAACP is sponsoring showings in Georgia; ACLU in Kansas. Oklahoma has already revealed to us their lists. Greg Palast’s activist version of his film The Best Democracy Money Can Buy packs in the hardcore information, so everyone can see exactly how Trump stole it. Beyond the investigative shocks, this film is robustly entertaining, particularly in the cameos by Shailene Woodley, Willie Nelson, Rosario Dawson, and Ice-T). The film ends with an emotional kick that gets folks motivated. You can’t walk away from the film unaware of the continuing danger of racial voter suppression (which is still accelerating). You can’t walk away without feeling ethnic cleansing has come again to America.

When Donald Trump said, This election is rigged he should know.
His buddies rigged it.

Rolling Stone investigative reporter Greg Palast busted Jeb Bush for stealing the 2000 election by purging Black voters from Florida’s electoral rolls. Now Palast is back to take a deep dive into the Republicans dark operation, Crosscheck, the secret purge list that helped steal the 2016 Election.

Crosscheck is controlled by a Trump henchman, Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State who claims his computer program has identified 7.2 million people in 29 states who may have voted twice in the same electiona felony crime. The catch? Most of these suspects are minoritiesin other words, mainly Democratic voters. Yet the lists and the evidence remain confidential.

Palast and his investigative side-kick Badpenny do what it takes to get their hands on the data, analyze it and go find some of these 7.2 million Americans tagged suspects and potential duplicate voters.

They hunt down and confront Kobach with the evidence of his lynching by laptop. Then they are off to find the billionaires behind this voting scam. The search takes Palast from Kansas to the Arctic, the Congo, and to a swanky Hamptons dinner party held by Trumps sugar-daddy, John Paulson, a.k.a. JP The Foreclosure King.

Palast and Badpenny stake out top GOP donors, the billionaire known as The Vulture and the Koch brothers, whom Palast nails with a damning tape recording.

This real life detective story is told in a film noir style with cartoon animations, secret documents, hidden cameras, and a little help from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit detectives, Ice-T and Richard Belzer, Shailene Woodley, Rosario Dawson, Willie Nelson and Ed Asner, Palast and his associates expose the darkest plans of the uber-rich to steal Americas democracy.
