About this project
Greg Palast’s Billionaires and Ballots Investigation
The top elections-heist investigators in the USA need your donation, here today, to complete our comic book, our elections guide book and our film exposing the attempt to Steal 2012 by a combination of billionaire’s hidden cash and vote heists.
In 1996, Greg Palast filmed the first investigation of The Koch Brothers.
In 2000, Palast uncovered how Katherine Harris purged 56,000 African-Americans from Florida voter rolls.
In 2008, Palast, with Bobby Kennedy, busted the Karl Rove attack on ballots – from ID games to firing US prosecutors.
And now, in 2012, there’s once again a full-scale attack on the right to vote.
If we can get $15,000 right now, we can just make our May 3rd deadline to draw and print our BILLIONAIRES AND BANDITS comic book with genius pen man Ted Rall.
The funds will also allow us to edit and broadcast our film shot over the past four years from all over the USA on Karl Rove’s $200 million game to suppress the vote.
We have the evidence, the inside documents and the internationally respected team — Greg Palast, Bobby Kennedy, Rick Rowley, ZD Roberts, Badpenny and the rest of the crew — whose reports you’ve seen on BBC-TV and Democracy Now!, PBS’ Now!, and in Rolling Stone, Harpers, and the Guardian.
The top media outlets in the USA are prepared to print and broadcast our reports.
BUT, they can’t finance the basic detective work that gives our reports their powerful weight of undeniable facts.
For that, we count on you.
In 2008, we created the comic book, Steal Back Your Vote! We printed 60,000 copies and got them into the hands of those whose votes get stolen: For example, the low-rider voting groups in New Mexico, African-American churches in Florida and Native American pueblos.
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.
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.
And this year, we have a new dimension: We have deep file cabinets filled with confidential information on the billionaires behind the ballot-bending.
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?
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.
As Bobby Kennedy says, “No one is born Republican or Democrat” and everyone should have the right to their vote being counted.
We MUST get this information out and soon. Help us right now and get your name in the film credits and in the book.
