Georgia Governor Brian Kemp Loses Lawsuit to Journalist Greg Palast


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Greg Palast, a filmmaker and investigative reporter, whose news-breaking stories appear on BBC Television, The Guardian and Rolling Stone Magazine.


His latest film is The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: A Tale of Billionaires and Ballot Bandits, based on his New York Times bestselling books.


The 2018 Gubernatorial election in Georgia became ground-zero for Republican-led vote suppression when then Secretary of State Brian Kemp ran against Democrat Stacey Abrams.

As State Secretary Kemp had unique access to the state’s voting systems in the same election in which he ran for higher office.

Now, a lawsuit filed by investigative reporter Greg Palast over voting shenanigans in Georgia has won a victory.

A Federal judge just declared the case against Kemp and joining me to tell us all about it is Greg Palast himself.
