    A federal judge has rejected Georgia officials' arguments in an election-related lawsuit and ruled that information being sought by a journalist and an activist is subject to public disclosure.
    Investigative journalist Greg Palast and civil rights activist Helen Butler are seeking lists that were produced as part of Georgia's involvement in a database designed to share voter registration data between participating states

    The Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program, created by the Kansas Secretary of State's office in 2005, was promoted as a way to compare voter registration lists to identify people registered in more than one state. The program's stated purpose was to clean voter records and prevent voter fraud, but it has been criticized for a high error rate and lax security.

    Sounds like the same software company that handled Iowa.

    Kemp Loses Vote Purge Suit Brought by Reporter Palast

    Huh? This is about a list created and passed around to different states to use for voter suppression, in paticular the black voters. More than enough were eliminated in Georgia to allow Kemp to steal the election.
    The Crosscheck program compares registration lists and uses voters' first and last names and dates of birth to determine whether someone is registered in more than one state. Critics allege that it produces a high number of false matches.
    The Kansas secretary of state's office said last month that the future of the program is uncertain after its champion, former secretary of state Kris Kobach lost his bid to become governor and is no longer an elected official.

    It already worked, but this should limit future damage

    If you really want to get rid of voter fraud then get out and vote and purge as many Republicans out of office as possible

    At least get rid of the morally bankrupt ones. Wait, other than Romney, that's all of them. It didn't use to be that way.

    Republicans lost the culture battle and are now fine with graft and voter suppression. Their party is held together by accomplices to crimes in the name of beating the libs. Oblivion of irrelevance awaits them.
