(7Nov14)Our media monopolies ignore a conspiracy in 28 states that will disenfranchise millions of minority voters. Muckraker Greg Palast published a detailed report for Al Jazeera, and tomorrow morning he will be forced to answer The Question From Hell. (details)
Did you get treated like a criminal when you prepared to vote in your state? Here is the complete list of participants in the Crosscheck program:
|State||Secretary of State*||Party|
|Kentucky||Alison Lundergan Grimes||D|
|Massachusetts||William F Glavin||D|
|Nebraska||John A. Gale||R|
|North Carolina||Kim Strach||Non-partisan|
|South Dakota||Jason Gant||R|
|South Carolina||Mark Hammond||R|
|West Virginia||Natalie Tennant||D|
Note: *Officials are secretaries of state, except in Alaska (lieutenant governor), North Carolina (director of the state board of elections) and Virginia, (department of elections).
Editor's note: The top election official in Virginia is Edgardo Cortés, Commissioner, Department of Elections, not Levar Stoney, who is Secretary of the Commonwealth.
