Vigilante voter strikes are not just happening in Georgia, where Greg Palast centered his new documentary, Vigilante: Georgia's Vote Suppression Hitman. But the vigilantes are using different tactics in different states. In states with open carry laws, like Arizona, they’re actually showing up at early voting stations and dropbox sites with guns and masks to intimidate voters. Arizona may have an open carry law, but it’s still part of the United States of America, which means that the state is subject to the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, which was specifically says you cannot use any threat of violence to intimidate voters.
In this edition of the Election Crimes Bulletin, investigative journalist Greg Palast and FlashPoints News host Dennis J. Bernstein discuss this new wave of vigilante voter suppression.
The duo also delve into Justice Clarence Thomas’ recent ruling, which gives Lindsay Graham a temporary stay from having to testify before the grand jury in Atlanta which is investigating whether Trump and his allies tried to illegally influence and undermine the results of the 2020 election in Georgia. Thomas knows even this Supreme Court will likely to overturn his ruling, but he’s given Graham a critical vacation from testifying until after the midterms. This is good news for Brian Kemp, who’s campaign might otherwise be in jeopardy if inconvenient truths about his conversations Graham were to come out before the November election.
