Specious Claim of 7.2 Million Double Voters Used to Purge Voter Roles

Greg Palast 2

Writer Greg Palast, author of the best selling titles “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy” and “Billionaires and Ballot Bandits” reveals how Republican operatives use a specious claim that 7.2 million people have voted twice. The motive is to purge legitimate voters from the roles.

Palast is well known for pointing out Florida’s purge of voter roles by then Secretary of State Katherine Harris.

The forum, held on May 29th, 2016, was moderated by Mimi Kennedy and included Bev Harris, Greg Palast, Harvey Wasserman, Bob Fitrakis and John Brakey.

    Wait a minute. This morning I got an email from this site saying that Greg Palast had claimed that 7.9 million people had voted twice.
    Then this afternoon I get an email saying that Greg Palast said Republicans had speciously claimed 7.9 million people had voted twice so they could purge voter rolls.
    Was the first email an attempt at claiming Hillary was stealing the election?

      Yes, I was a bit tired and misread the gist of the clip. Brakey pointed out my gaff, so I changed it to a proper title. Sorry about the confusion.
