Greg Palast Seeks Donations For Vote Investigation

Greg Palast Calls For Purchases/Donations For Vote Fraud Investigations

The Greg Palast investigative team has launched two major new investigations - on the 2004 vote and on the Iraq war.

Al Franken, Amy Goodman, Janeane Garofalo read 'The Best Democracy Money Can Buy'

To make this possible, we are asking you to donate $100 or more to fund this work. In return for this tax-deductible donation, we'll send you a 5-CD set of Al Franken, Amy Goodman, and Janeane Garofalo reading 'The Best Democracy Money Can Buy,' Palast's New York Times bestseller ... each personally autographed by the author.

Also joining Palast on this 5-CD audio version of the book are trouble-makers Jim Hightower, Ed Asner, Alec Baldwin, Alexandra Paul, Shiva Rose, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, and the man who made the Dead Kennedys come to life, Jello Biafra.

Make your donation right now at

Donate before December 1 to get your thank you gift during Hannukah; donate by December 9 to get your CD set before Christmas.

Palast is, "The most important investigative journalist of our time," says Tribune Magazine (UK), BUT THAT DON'T PAY THE BILLS. Real investigative reporting takes real cash; from phones to photocopies, the cost is breathtaking.

Here's what your donation will support. First, we'll dig into COLD, HARD EVIDENCE OF VOTE MANIPULATION in the 2004 race. Looks like Kerry got the most votes in Ohio and New Mexico. How come those ballots won't get counted? We are hunting where other investigators fear to tread.

Second, our investigative team has uncovered 323 pages of documentation from inside the Bush regime on the division of the OIL FIELDS OF IRAQ. What does it mean? Who's behind this secret plan? Where will it lead? To war in Iran? Please give us the tools to dig.

Support our new work now with a $100 tax-deductible donation to our foundation, The Palast Investigative Fund, and receive the signed 5 CD set of the The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.

Or, donate $50 and receive a signed copy of the book, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.

Or, donate $25 and get a great stocking stuffer: "Joker's Wild: Dubya's Trick Deck" cards -- the big flash-card sized four-color playing deck, an illustrated, satirical version of the book "Best Democracy." Each deck signed by the author.

Really want to move our work forward? Donate at least $200 and receive the audio book (5 CDs), the book itself, the cards, PLUS "Bush Family Fortunes," the film on DVD, taken from Palast's investigative reports seen on BBC Television, all signed.
