"No one has told our story of our missing voters like Greg Palast" - Rev. Jesse Jackson.
Follow investigative reporter for Rolling Stone, The Guardian and Democracy Now! Greg Palast as he hunts for the vanished voters of Trump's America.
Yes, the election's stolen but Palast shows you how to steal it back!
"Read this book. It might just save us! Greg Palast is the most incisive journalist on elections. Plus he's @##$% hilarious." --Josh Fox, The Young Turks
Palast lets you in on the nasty secrets of Trump-merica's democracy:
• One in five mail-in ballots are never counted.
• The chance of your vote being thrown in the garbage is 900% higher if you're Black than if you're white.
• 16.7 million voters were purged from the rolls in the past two years. Guess their color.
In How Trump Stole 2020, you meet the scamps, scoundrels and grifters (or "Governors" as we call them in America) doing the dirty to voters of color. Check out the photo of Palast confronting GOP Governor Kemp of Georgia whom Palast catches under a neon pig at a bar-b-que joint to ask Kemp if he's wiping away Black voter registrations to steal the election. The response: Palast gets busted.
The book includes an exclusive interview with Stacey Abrams on vote thievery--and a 48-page comic book from the piercing pen of Ted Rall.
You may know Palast as the fedora-wearing gum-shoe old-school investigative reporter who busted the theft of Florida in 2000 for The Guardian and in his New York Times bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.
"Palast is one of our great investigative reporters. If you are not outraged by what Palast has uncovered, you have no heart. A searing indictment of our rigged electoral system." --Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist
"Palast's work is invaluable for our community." --LaTosha Brown, Black Voters Matter
About the Author
Born in Los Angeles in 1952, GREG PALAST worked as a government consultant and an investigator for labor unions before turning to journalism full time. A self described “reporting investigator” as opposed to an investigative journalist, he became a writer in order to alert a wider public to abuses he saw committed by governments, corporations, politicians, and lobbyists. For years Palast wrote a column for the Guardian called “Inside Corporate America,” and his articles have appeared in magazines and journals including the Nation, Harper’s, and In These Times. Palast’s 2002 bestseller The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, which covered in detail the fiasco of President Bush’s victory in Florida in 2000, appeared in 2002 and served as the basis for his documentary film Bush Family Fortunes. His most recent book is Billionaires and Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps, with illustrations by Ted Rall. Palast lives in New York City.
Twice the winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award and a Pulitzer Prize finalist, TED RALL is a political cartoonist, opinion columnist, graphic novelist and occasional war correspondent whose work has appeared in hundreds of publications, including the New York Times, Washington Post, Village Voice, and Los Angeles Times. He is the illustrator of the full-length comic in Billionaires & Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps, written by Greg Palast.
