This investigation led me on a journey throughout Ohio, the pivotal swing state that decided the last presidential election. I met politicians, activists, election officials, journalists, attorneys, party leaders, a lot of cool locals who helped me shoot it all, and Jerry Springer.
The evidence I came across showed not just efforts to steal votes at the polls, but to systematically block millions of Americans from even casting a vote. When some people know they can’t win fairly, they’ll do everything they can to cheat.
My film <em>FREE FOR ALL!</em> studies one such person: Ken Blackwell, the man who turned the office of Secretary of State against his follow Ohioans.
The film also shows me getting elaborate vote swindling schemes and complex legal matters dumbed-down for my benefit, because I am just some dude.
My hope is that this will help everyone understand how our elections are really going down, right now in 2008, right here in America.
Voting is not enough anymore. <em>(though a huge turnout is key)</em>
As I found out, the 2008 election has <em>already been stolen:</em> We need to swipe it back.
