How to steal an election in 9 easy steps: An interview with Greg Palast

If you missed him at the Clinton St. Theater last week, here's a second chance to hear the latest dirt on the dirty art of politics Karl Rove-style from investigative journalist Greg Palast. Greg will share from his latest book, Billionaires and Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps, which just made the New York Times top ten best sellers list. This time Greg is naming names and throwing a lot on the "voter ID" scam being pushed by Rove and his billionaire friends to electorally cleanse blacks, hispanics, soldiers serving overseas and other potential Democratic voters.
