"We're having elections which are being decided not by what the vote is, but who's blocking the vote. It's a secret purge. And that's one of the things that makes it insidious and most dangerous. "

– Interview with Greg Palast, journalist and author, on the Interstate Crosscheck System, a project of right-wing Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who’s known for his advocacy of restrictive voter ID laws and anti-immigrant legislation nationwide

Investigation Reveals New GOP Tactic to Purge Millions of Minority Voters in 28 States

MP3 Interview with Greg Palast, journalist and author, "Billionaires and Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps", conducted by Scott Harris

voterpurge

A six-month investigation conducted by journalist and author Greg Palast for Al Jazeera America has uncovered a new method by which 28 states, mostly controlled by the Republican Party, have threatened to purge as many as 3 million predominantly minority voters from the voting rolls in the 2014 midterm election and beyond. Palast's report, titled: “Jim Crow Returns,” examines something called the Interstate Crosscheck System, a project of right-wing Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who’s known for his advocacy of restrictive voter ID laws and anti-immigrant legislation nationwide.  Story continues

Voter Suppression Laws Field Tested in 2014 Election, May Have Determined Outcome in Several Races

MP3 Interview with Katherine Culliton-Gonzalez, senior attorney with Advancement Project, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

votersuppression

As citizens across the U.S. cast ballots in the 2014 mid-term election, 22 states, most of them controlled by the Republican Party, had passed a variety of laws that made it harder for specific groups of people to vote. The measures included a reduction in the days and hours of early voting, new obstacles placed on absentee ballots, making the registration of new voters more difficult and imposing restrictive voter ID laws, which in Texas alone were estimated to prevent 600,000 citizens from voting. This avalanche of new voting restrictions followed the Supreme Court’s 2013 ruling, which gutted a key section of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Story continues

Covert Corporate Cash Funneled Through U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Tops List of Dark Money Donors in 2014 Congressional Campaigns

MP3 Interview with Sam Jewler, communications officer with Public Citizen's U.S. Chamber Watch, conducted by Scott Harris

darkmoney

Since the U.S. Supreme Court issued its 5 to 4 ruling in the Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission case in January 2010, the floodgates of unlimited and unaccountable money have been pouring into U.S. political campaigns. Attempts made to pass congressional legislation to mitigate the effects of the high court ruling that supported the expansion of secret corporate campaign contributions in U.S. elections have thus far all failed.  Story continues
