Investigation Finds Massive Bid to Steal the Election
As John McCain and GOP operatives rattle their sabers about ACORN’s alleged “voter fraud” tactics, tag-team investigators Greg Palast and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. have released some truly scary findings, in the latest Rolling Stone, from their investigation into Republican efforts to steal the 2008 presidential election.
However, the news isn’t all bad: Palast and Kennedy have put together a nonpartisan site, StealBackYourVote.org, to help counter voter fraud.
Wait, before you go…
– Republican Secretaries of State of swing-state Colorado have quietly purged one in six names from their voter rolls.
Over several months, the GOP politicos in Colorado stonewalled every attempt by Rolling Stone to get an answer to the massive purge — ten times the average state’s rate of removal.
– While Obama dreams of riding to the White House on a wave of new voters, more then 2.7 million have had their registrations REJECTED under new procedures signed into law by George Bush. Kennedy, a voting rights lawyer, charges this is a resurgence of ‘Jim Crow’ tactics to wrongly block Black and Hispanic voters.
– A fired US prosecutor levels new charges — accusing leaders of his own party, Republicans, with criminal acts in an attempt to block legal voters as “fraudulent.”
