Greg Palast | The Election was Stolen – Here’s How | Rise Up Times

Starting in 2013 – just as the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act – a coterie of Trump operatives, under the direction of Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, created a system to purge 1.1 million Americans of color from the voter rolls of GOP–controlled states.The system, called Crosscheck, is detailed in my Rolling Stone report,“The GOP’s Stealth War on Voters,” 8/24/2016.

Crosscheck in action:  
                   
Tuesday, we saw Crosscheck elect a Republican Senate and as President, Donald Trump.  The electoral putsch was aided by nine other methods of attacking the right to vote of Black, Latino and Asian-American voters, methods detailed in my book and film, including “Caging,” “purging,” blocking legitimate registrations, and wrongly shunting millions to “provisional” ballots that will never be counted.Trump signaled the use of “Crosscheck” when he claimed the election is “rigged” because “people are voting many, many times.”
