Court Approves Vigilante Mass Voter Challenges; Devastating Threat to 2024 Election Greg Palast

    • News

A federal court in Georgia has just ruled that a challenge to 360,000 Georgians’ right to vote—suspiciously targeting Black voters—does not violate the Voting Rights Act. This decision poses a devastating threat to the 2024 election.
Judge Steve C. Jones slapped aside the suit brought by Stacy Abrams’ Fair Fight against Texas group True the Vote, which had created the hit list of voters. The judge cited “lack of evidentiary support”—but he refused to hear our evidence, which is featured in our film Vigilante.
And because the ruling came down from a federal court, True the Vote has a green light to expand its mass challenge of voters to other states including, according to the triumphant group itself, Arizona, Texas and several other swing states.
One disastrous decision by the court helped sink Fair Fight’s case. 
Fair Fight needed to show that the 80 vigilante challengers relied on True the Votes’ target list. The incriminating evidence was caught on camera and included in our film Vigilante: Georgia’s Vote Suppression Hitman. 
Republican Party official Pam Reardon personally challenged a breathtaking 32,379 voters. Reardon told me, cameras rolling, that she didn’t bother to check any of the info on these voters because she simply took the list from True the Vote. 
GOP official Reardon said, “I can’t go through 32,000 people. I was handed the list by True the Vote.”
Case closed…except the judge would not let Fair Fight put our film into evidence.
To match the expansion of True the Votes’ vigilante  vote challenge tactics, we're expanding our exposé.
