"Steal Back Your Vote!" Comic Book Released

Steal Back Your Vote!

By Greg Palast, GregPalast.com


Bobby Kennedy Jr. and I have had it UP TO HERE. They stole 2000. They stole 2004. Now, they’re snatching it again. So Bobby and I are doing the most important thing we can do in a crisis of democracy: write an investigative comic book.

Here it is: Steal Back Your Vote is out today. Download it right now at StealBackYourVote.ORG

Its 24 full-color pages cut open the Rove-arian cancer on our ballot box: the Six Ways They’re Stealing Your Vote – plus a two-page pull-out guide – 7 Ways to Steal it Back.

Print it out. Pass it out. Right now.

Illustrations from the rapier-sharp pencils of Ted Rall, Troubletown’s Lloyd Dangle and Lukas Ketner.

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.
