Greg Palast is one of the top (and few remaining) investigative journalists today. Which is why no news organization in the United States will touch him. Which is why he is based in Great Britain working for both the Guardian and the BBC. In this story, he explains how the GOP effectively suppresses the vote using both gerrymandering and illegally removing registered voters from the voting rolls in order to “win” elections. Seeing has now the Obama DOJ and the Democratic Party have refused to wage all-all out legal war against this (made more difficult by the fact that most states and courts are controlled by Republicans), it’s very likely that the GOP will impose their version of democracy on this country which will greatly resemble the “democracies” in Russia, Turkey, China, Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico, Honduras, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Afghanistan, Myanmar, and, unfortunately, way too many more to list.
This Palast segment on Amy Goodman’s “Democracy Now!” primarily reports how the GOP is working to beat Jon Ossoff, the Democratic candidate for the 6th congressional district seat in Georgia. But it also lays out clearly all that the Trump administration and the GOP are doing to fix elections permanently in this country.
