"DON'T LET THEM STEAL FLORIDA AGAIN!"  

July 30, 2004

From www.gregpalast.com

(
Boston) Author-filmmakers Michael Moore and Greg Palast joined with Representatives Corrine Brown (D-Jacksonville) and Peter Deutsch (D-Ft. Lauderdale) to demand steps, as Palast said, "To prevent Republican hacks in Florida swiping the election of 2004 as they did four years ago."

At a press conference Wednesday morning before the
Florida delegation to the Democratic Convention in Boston, Moore endorsed a bill introduced by Brown to make it easier for Congress to challenge an election tainted by apparent fraud.

"Don't let them steal
Florida again," said Palast, the investigative reporter who in 2000 first uncovered for BBC Television that Katherine Harris and Jeb Bush had wrongly removed tens of thousand of Black citizens from voter rolls. Palast's reports on the theft of the elections are featured in Moore's film "Fahrenheit 9/11."

Palast has discovered that current lists of 47,000 "felon" voters which
Florida has targeted for removal is at least 90% wrong. "

"These so-called criminals' only crime," said Palast, "is VWD - voting while Democratic." The "purge" list contains four Democrats for every Republican.

Palast pointed out such names on the lists as Thomas Cooper whose date of conviction is entered as
January 30, 2007, "a criminal of the future."

Earlier this month, after Palast testified before the US Civil Rights Commission in
Washington, the CRC voted to ask the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation of the State of Florida's handling of voter rolls.

Palast's expose of the "fake felon purge" for Harper's Magazine was nominated for a National Magazine Award in 2002.
