Greg Palast’s, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: a Tale of Billionaires and Ballot Bandits

this episode is no longer available

author and filmmaker Greg Palast explores the roots of voter suppression and how the GOP stole the 2016 Presidential Election.

Greg Palast, is a New York Times bestselling author and an investigative reporter for the BBC and the British newspaper, The Guardian. Like Michael Moore, he is also a documentary filmmaker. His new film, “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: a Tale of Billionaires and Ballot Bandits,” unmasks the continuing and unrelenting Jim-Crow attempts by America’s “Billionaire Bandits” to prevent minority communities from exercising their constitutional right to vote. Digging deep, Palast interviews voters of color who have been blocked from the polls, either by being stricken from the registry or made to wait for hours to cast their ballots, and effectively exposes the ways the Interstate Crosscheck system fails to stop voter fraud and instead blocks valid voters from casting ballots.
