Why Haven't They Counted 250,000 Votes In Ohio

Why Haven't They Counted A Quarter Million Votes In Ohio?


Live nationwide on Pacifica radio and at KPFT.org
Jesse Jackson and Greg Palast

On Saturday Dec 4th , from 6pm-9pm EST, Rev. Jackson joins investigative reporter Greg Palast to ask what happened to nearly a quarter million votes, overwhelmingly from African-American precincts, not counted in Ohio.

For BBC Television, Palast uncovered the fake felon list that swiped the election in 2000; this year, his report on BBC television broke the story of the secret Republican "caging" lists that bent the November race.

The smell of Black ballots burning is hard to ignore. We need your help to continue this investigation into the votes not counted in Ohio, New Mexico and Florida. Behind the by-line "Greg Palast" in Harper's, The Nation and the Guardian is an investigative team that is now running perilously low on funding. While Greg Palast has donated 100% of his royalties from his bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, to the effort, we're still in the red.

We're asking you to keep this investigation going by making a $50 tax-deductible donation to the Palast Investigative Fund ... in return we'll send you as a thank you, the blistering documentary, "Bush Family Fortunes" on DVD, signed by reporter Palast. The film is taken from Palast's award-winning investigate broadcasts for BBC Television - the story of the Bush-Bin Laden connection, the shoplift of the vote in Florida, the secret plans for "Operation Iraqi Liberation" and other reports that you can't see on your Fox-ified TV. Donate at http://www.gregpalast.com/store.htm Donate before December 10 and receive your signed DVD before Christmas via first class mail.

This is the film Jesse Jackson says, "You must see." That Senator John Edwards calls "Important and disturbing." Katherine Harris says Palast's reporting is, "Twisted and maniacal." Maybe that's why Noam Chomsky says Palast, "Upsets all the right people."

Other gift choices in return for your tax-deductible donation, all shipped within a week of donation via first class mail:

The Book: "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: New Special Election Edition," (Penguin 2004) signed by the author, for a minimum $50 donation.

The Cards: "Joker's Wild: Dubya's Trick Deck" - Tarot-sized four-color cards ... the illustrated satirical version of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, for a minimum donation of $25, signed by the author.

The Audio Book: The five CD set from Penguin books of "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy" read by the author with Ed Asner, Alec Baldwin, Jello Biafra, Al Franken, Janeane Garofalo, Amy Goodman, Jim Hightower, Cynthia McKinney, Alexandra Paul and Shiva Rose -- for a minimum donation of $100.00

The Whole Enchilada: For a minimum donation of $200, we'll send you a signed copy of the Special Election Edition of the book plus a signed copy of the cards, plus a signed copy of the 5-CD audio book, plus a signed copy copy of the DVD, "Bush Family Fortunes."

We don't take corporate money. We don't have big funders. Our readers keep us alive. Please donate now at http://www.GregPalast.com/store.htm
