Billionaire Ballot Bandits - I've caught'em - Solutions included
Vatic Note: As our regular readers know, I do not junk up the site with ads since it truly distracts from the research and information we put up to educate and stimulate. However, in this case, since Vatic Project knows the cost personally and professionally to committing to the truth, I decided to put this up to help spread the information that is contained within the book. He provides solutions on how to counteract the planned ELECTION FRAUD being funded by the fascist billionaires recruited by Karl Rove. Now ask yourself, if there were a difference between the parties, then what the heck is Karl Rove doing making sure the election results support Obama???? .
Billionaire Ballot Bandits - I've caught'em
by Greg Palast, investigative Reporter
Karl Rove has you by the ballots. With a $200 million war chest from a coven of billionaires, don't count on getting your vote counted.
There's only one thing to stop him: A COMIC BOOK.
If we can get just $10,190 in the next 14 days, the nation’s top elections-heist investigators can publish our new voter-protection comic book, BILLIONAIRES AND BALLOT BANDITS.
Or, if you can't swing that, at least get a signed copy which you can pre-order.
If we don't get the funds by May 3, our team's work is kaput.
In 2008, you helped us put out the amazing Steal Back Your Vote comic book which went to over a quarter million threatened voters. We are proud that one is in the Native-American museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Genius pen-man Ted Rall, crusading voting rights attorney Bobby Kennedy Jr., gonzo photographer Zach Roberts (Friday is his trial date from his arrest covering the Occupation for us) and the rest of the Palast Investigation crew will be putting together another comic book PLUS a film short series PLUS a booklet.
The comic book, films and booklet will combine our investigation of vote theft with the names and blood-soaked sources of the super-PACs.
We know the billionaires, open and hidden, behind Restore Our Future, the Kochs and Rove’s Crossroads GPS. Shouldn’t you know who’s buying the White House and how they got their loot?
Help us get out the story right now.
We are a not-for-profit project (IRS letter and info on request) and strictly non-partisan: it’s about saving our democracy from a coup d’état of moneyed ballot-burglars.
We MUST get this information out and soon. Help us right now and get your name in the film credits and in the book.
Are you an Angel? We need heavenly agents to donate $1,000 each -- and get film co-producer credits and book co-publish credit ... 20 copies to give to the Occupation, civil rights or non-profit group of your choice.
Since 1996, when I was the first journalist to film a documentary exposé on the Koch Brothers, I've been building the files that no one has yet seen. HELP ME GET OUT THE EVIDENCE.
In 2000, we uncovered how Katherine Harris purged 56,000 African-Americans from Florida’s voter rolls. It's gotten worse––I kid you not––and we need to expose the Right's latest ballot burglary scheme.
And we got it to the activists: we made it available for free and published it in The Nation. All from donations.
Our publisher, Seven Stories Books, is willing to put the book/comic out for a dirt cheap price, online and in print. We need to get this onto the streets and into the media before the election.
Not one dime goes to Greg Palast. I will donate my time and files. But we can’t get to the scenes of the ballot-box crimes by flapping our arms. We need travel money.
We already have hair-raising film in the can. That too needs editing so we can shine it on those who wreck our civil rights.
By the way: If you have ever donated to our Fund and NOT received the expected gift, please let us know immediately. Everyone of our supporters is our soulmate.
You know I don't ask often. But now I have to. The Kickstarter deadline is no joke. Join me in supporting this defense of our democracy.
There are many levels at which you can support us - please check out our kickstarter here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1527604254/billionaires-and-ballots for exclusive clips and excerpts from the book and film months before its release.
Any questions about Kickstarter, or how to support our work please contact our producer at zach (a) gregpalast.com
