"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.

Or you can order print copies (minimum 25) here at StealBackYourVote.org

To cover costs, we’re asking you to make a donation – it can be a buck, ten bucks, a penny, a grand. This will pay for print copies we’re sending to vulnerable voters. (We’ll send them gratis to churches designated by our co-sponsor, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Operation Rainbow/PUSH.)

And while you’re there, download the guide and order print copies. And join co-sponsors Voto Latino, Randi Rhodes, Willie Nelson, Jesse Jackson, Thom Hartmann, Air America Radio, Democracy for America and more by adding your group as sponsor at StealBackYourVote.org.

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.
