Greg Palast in Ohio on GOP Effort to Remove African Americans from Voter Rolls in Battleground State – In an on-the-ground report from the battleground state of Ohio, investigative reporter Greg Palast has uncovered the latest in vote suppression tactics led by Republicans that could threaten the integrity of the vote in Ohio and North Carolina. On some polling machines, audit protection functions have been shut off, and African Americans and Hispanics are being scrubbed from the voter rolls through a system called Crosscheck. “It’s a brand-new Jim Crow,” Palast says. “Today, on Election Day, they’re not going to use white sheets to keep way black voters. Today, they’re using spreadsheets.”

  3. Greg,
    Hope to see you around here lots more!
    Keep up the awesome work! Could you consider opening a School to teach Investigative Reporting or at least write a book on it.

  4. Love Greg Palast! This is part of the great voter suppression and election fraud perpetrated on the American people by BOTH major corporate-owned political parties.

  5. funny how when liberals claim the elections as being rigged, it's good. Conservatives claim it, "how dare you question the elections!" from liberals.
