For the absolute final Last Interview, investigative journalist Greg Palast returns to talk about rejected mail-in ballots, Trump's futile legal gambits, and the Palast-supported lawsuit to restore 198,000 purged voters in Georgia.Palast is the author, most recently, of How Trump Stole the 2020 Election, in which he detailed many predictions that have come true.
We open with discussion of the flaws of mail-in voting, as Palast estimates that 4 million ballots nationwide were rejected this year. In states that permit the "curing" of defective ballots, he estimates that only a small number of voters actually did get to fix their errors.
While Palast declares there was not significant voter fraud in this cycle, the claims that it was a "perfect" election, or the most secure ever, do not win his approval. He notes that the efforts to rig the outcome before November 3 are ignored by the corporate media, which got the desired result.
He discusses the lawsuit that he testified about yesterday, December 10, in federal court in Georgia, seeking to restore 198,000 voters who were dropped from the rolls because the secretary of state claimed they had moved; Palast has evidence that 198,000 out of 300,000 purged had provably not moved.
Palast is joining PBC in retiring, in his case after the January 5 Senate runoff in Georgia. We thank him for his tireless efforts for clean American elections.
