Greg Palast, says Noam Chomsky, "upsets all the right people," and he's coming to town on September 26 as part of the book tour for Billionaires and Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps.
As in the past, Greg has offered this speaking engagement as a benefit for KBOO.
Here's what Greg has to say for himself.
"If you're not sick and outraged and ready to vomit, then don't talk to me.
When I see a cruel bucket of garbage and winky-winky racism and bullshit and venom like Paul Ryan talk to America like he's some kind of Boy Scout, I want a gun, or a TV network where I can tell the truth or a giant washing machine to dunk America and rinse off the crud of lies and pure manipulative evil that they're feeding us.
But I don't like guns, I don't have a TV network, I just have this: A book....It's the most important bullet I've ever fired."
Greg Palast is mad as hell about billionaires buying up our democracy so he's created a new ballot-protection weapon to take back the vote. The award-winning investigative reporter who broke the story of black voters purged from Florida voter rolls in 2000 and exposed Karl Roves voter ID games in 2008 has teamed with cartoonist Ted Rall to produce Billionaires & Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps.
Join Greg for an evening that delivers the hard evidence on the "full-scale attack on the right to vote" that's unfolding in the 2012 campaign and tools for fighting back in an election that Bobby Kennedy says will see $4 billion spent to derail the voting process.
Ticket price includes a copy of just released, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps - book signing will follow lecture.
