The Secretary of State of Georgia, Brad Raffensperger, admitted to CNN that they did not use a postal service licensee to check the names and addresses of voters on their purge list to verify that they had moved (we did!).

This means that his entire 2019 purge is illegal under the National Voter Registration Act, Section 8(c)(A).

In other words, he flat-out lied. He said he used a "respected licensee," a complete fabrication.

Let the people vote, Mr. Raffensperger.

His office has reportedly said, “The Post Office is our licensee.” There is no such thing; that’s why the law specifically states, “Postal Service licensee”. The Palast Fund retained the USPS licensee, Merkle Inc. Now we know the key reason he removed tens of thousands of voters wrongly—disproportionately Black, low-income and young voters.

Wednesday, Greg Palast and The Palast Investigative Fund’s attorney sent a formal, legal notice to Georgia’s Secretary of State. The letter demands that the Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger review our evidence that he wrongly removed 198,351 voters from Georgia’s registration rolls.

This follows the ACLU of Georgia’s release of the Palast report Georgia Voter Roll Purge Errors.

Furthermore, Palast Fund attorney Jeanne Mirer demanded that Raffensperger reveal the name of his so-called expert who gave him this bogus, racially biased purge list or face another legal action under the National Voter Registration Act.

Greg Palast already won a federal court ruling against Raffensperger in February of this year.

“Do we really have to haul this guy back to court to find out the source of his Jim Crow list?”

Wednesday, The Palast Investigative team held a joint press conference with Black Voters Matter Fund founders LaTosha Brown and Cliff Albright. Brown and Albright called on Raffensperger to restore all these voters’ registrations before the election.

LaTosha Brown commented, “This report shows that 200,000 people were illegally removed from the voter rolls, and the Sec. of State must restore their rights immediately. It was not the fault of these voters.”

Greg Palast said: "We are asking the Sec. of State to name the so-called expert, who by law must be a US Postal Service licensee, to meet with our experts, go over our list name by name and find out how his office got this so disastrously wrong—purging voters for moving from their registration residence—who never moved."

Black Voters Matter with the Palast Fund will launch a campaign to contact the ’scrubbed voters’ by mail and other means to tell them they must re-register by October 5.

Our outreach campaign will be non-partisan: No voter of any party, of any race, should lose their vote, “because of the State’s mistake,” said LaTosha Brown.
