On Radioactivity Wednesday we spoke with   investigative reporter Greg Palast about his upcoming film on voter suppression. Palast broke the story of how African Americans with similar names to ex felons were removed from Florida’s voter rolls prior to the 2000 Presidential election. As a result– thousands of people were wrongfully removed from the voter rolls here in Florida. Now Greg Palast is completing a new film, called THE BEST DEMOCRACY MONEY CAN BUY A Tale of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits  about recent examples of voter suppression in the US. The Film will be screened at the Neel Performing Arts Center in Sarasota on Saturday, Sept.24 at 2 pm and 7 pm.
