There’s a press conference today in Atlanta concerning 106,000 registrants purged from the voter rolls in Georgia. These are names of people who allegedly moved from the state, but have not.
Civil Rights Leaders have filed a lawsuit. Although the press conference in Atlanta is focusing on Georgia, this is the first of several nationwide actions, the result of legal actions and investigation in 27 states led by Rev. Jesse Jackson and investigative reporter Greg Palast following up on Palast’s exposé in Rolling Stone.
