Down for the Count
Dirty Elections and the Rotten History of Democracy in AmericaBook - 2016 | Rev. and updated ed
This rollicking history of American democracy demonstrates that electoral fraud is as American as apple pie. Down for the Count explores in an accessible, engaging style the tawdry continuing history of votes bought, stolen, suppressed, lost, miscounted, thrown into rivers and litigated up to the Supreme Court in the world's most powerful democracy. First published to great acclaim and controversy in 2005 as Steal this Vote (Nation Books), this thoroughly revised edition lifts the lid off the largely undiscussed corruption at the core of American Political History.
