GREG PALAST regularly contributes original reporting to the BBC,
The Guardian, Democracy Now, The Young Turks, and other progressive
media. He has been featured recently on among others MSNBC's Joy
Reid show and in Salon, and in the New York Times and Washington
Post for successfully suing the state of Georgia with Stacey Abrams
to release voter rolls after she lost a congressional seat to Brian
Kemp who was at the time also the overseer of the voter rolls.
Palast's two-decade hunt of elections chicanery are detailed in his
books, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy (2002), Armed Madhouse
(2006), and Billionaires & Ballot Bandits (2012)--all New York
Times bestsellers. In 2000, his investigation for the BBC and the
Guardian uncovered how the Bush family purged thousands of Black
men from Florida voter rolls, falsely labeling them felons, the
scheme that won Bush the White House. In 2016, Palast predicted
Trump's "surprise" election months earlier in a Rolling Stone
expose detailing exactly how Trump's operatives, in control of
voting offices in key states, would bend the election results.
Palast lives in Los Angeles, CA.
