Description

A close presidential election in November could well come down to contested states or even districts--an election decided by vote theft? It could happen this year. Based on Greg Palast and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s investigative reporting for Rolling Stone and BBC television plus new reporting by Palast for the new edition—a portion of which will be a Rolling Stone cover story, covered in major progressive media outlets which will include radio, television, and webcasts, and featured on listservs from important civil rights and activist organisations—The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: A Tale of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits will be the most important book published this year—one that could save the election.

The documentary film of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy is available on DVD from CinemaLibre Studio.

Praise For The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: A Tale of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits

"The Best Democracy Money Can Buy is a searing indictment of a rigged electoral system where hundreds of thousands of people of color are routinely denied the right to vote.  Palast, one our great investigative reporters, exposes one of the many mechanisms the corporate state uses to keep us enslaved.  If you are not outraged by what Palast has uncovered you have no heart."  Chris Hedges

"There's a specific kind of outrage that I think only the work of Greg Palast can evoke. It is the outrage when we realize our democracy is being taken away from us. And that there isn't anyone in the mainstream media aside from Greg Palast reporting on this with any reliability or accuracy or passion or intelligence--and that is itself a crime." --Gasland filmmaker Josh Fox
