Reviews

"The BBC reporter who busted Katherine Harris' fake felon purge tells weird, hilarious and sick stories of the billionaires who are bankrolling the GOP; with hot new info on the Koch Brothers as well as the filthy rich you've never heard of from his new book & film." --Buzzflash

"Palast's prose has a zippy, breathless quality that might put you in mind of Michael Moore--'How does a ballot get spoiled? Not by leaving it out of the fridge'--but he's also an expert in statistics who reports regularly for the BBC, Rolling Stone and other outlets." --New York Times

"The most terrifying book a Democrat could read. Billionaires & Ballot Bandits delineates the potential theft of democracy." --Huffington Post

"A practical primer on how to exercise your right to vote on Election Day in the face of a calculated Republican multi-pronged plan to prevent you from casting a ballot by any means necessary." --News Blaze

"Palast ... chronicles how many of America's super rich -- the Koch brothers, hedge fund titan Paul Singer, Texan corporate raider Harold Simmons, among many others -- have been patiently and prodigiously subsidizing campaigns not to 'get out the vote, ' but to keep it down." --Too Much

"If you really want to understand the forthcoming US presidential election, read this book." --Green Left
