Murder, spies & voting lies- stolen elections

Tom Feeney

Thomas Charles "Tom" Feeney III, usually known as Tom Feeney (born May 21, 1958), is an American politician from the state of Florida. He represented Florida's 24th congressional district. He was defeated in the 2008 election by Democrat Suzanne Kosmas.

In September 2006, Feeney was named one of the "20 Most Corrupt Members of Congress" in a report by 

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington;[10] he was also listed in the first report by the organization in January 2006, when he was one of 13 named members. The organization said "His ethics issues arise from trips he has taken in apparent violation of House travel and gift rules and from his failure to disclosure his ownership of rental property."

In 2006, Feeney was named a "Taxpayer Superhero" by the Citizens Against Government Waste.[7] He received a perfect score from theGrover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform(ATR). He was named "Guardian of Small Business" by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). The National Taxpayers Union presented Feeney with the "Taxpayers' Friend Award" in 2004[8] and in 2006.[9]

Whistleblower Clint Curtis spills the beans to journalist/blogger Brad Friedman (Bradblog.com) about the election fraud associated with George W. Bush’s first presidential ballot. Beautifully shot, in a style described as “60-minutes-noir”, Patty Sharaf’s acclaimed film has been called the “Alfred Hitchcock of election fraud movies”.

Friedman pokes at the seamy side of democracy, uncovering the story of computer programmer Clint Curtis, who recounts being asked before the 2000 election by a prominent Florida legislator to create vote-rigging software for electronic voting machines. The vote-rigging scandal devolves into a murder mystery, with Friedman shaking down the facts.

With electronic voting machine companies aggressively selling all over the globe, the implications for democracy worldwide are profound.
