More examples from the comic book that will save America:
From Steal #2: The Colorado Republican Secretary of State erased 19.4% off the names on that swing-state’s voter rolls. One in five voters – pfft!. Bush then named her to be Chairwoman of the Federal Elections Assistance Commission. (We hear Bush wanted to give her the title, “Purge’n General.”)
From Steal #3: Spoiling America. ‘Few Americans realize that in 2004, 1,389,231 ballots were never counted because they were “spoiled.” Were they left out of the fridge?’
From Steal #4: Nuns on the Run. So these 10 nuns walk into a polling station and… Oh, you’ve heard that one? What you didn’t here: 143,896 other voters were told to scram in swing-state Indiana. Nearly half of them… African American.
Greg Palast is the author of the New York
Times bestseller, "ARMED MADHOUSE." When Palast, an
investigator of corporate fraud and racketeering, turned his
skills to journalism, he was quickly recognized as, "The
most important investigative reporter of our time" [Tribune
Magazine] in Britain, where his first reports appeared on
BBC television and in the Guardian
