So it seems we have to live with electronic voting machines, at least for now. And we usually have to live with people in power lying to us, from time to time. But do we have to live with murder? Seriously?! The main character of this upcoming documentary, the computer programmer Clint Curtis, alleges that the story surrounding our electronic voting machines involves not just hacking and Republican shenanigans, but the “m” word, as well.
Murder, Spies, and Voting Lies: The Clint Curtis Story is the third and final film in our Political Series that has kicked off festival season. It is definitely the most wild of the three.
Here’s the official description: How can you be certain if you vote on a computer whose software is owned by a private corporation and which leaves no paper record? Clint Curtis, a computer programmer, recounts how Congressman Tom Feeney, (R-FL) asked him to create vote-rigging software for electronic voting machines, way back in 2000. This provocative and timely new documentary, profiles the seamiest side of our democracy: the creation of vote-rigging software and the wholesale transfer of control over local, state, and national elections to the Republican-dominated Diebold Corporation. Look for cameos from Bob Fitrakis, Gore Vidal, Cynthia McKinney and Diebold hacker Harri Hursti. Guaranteed to have you running for paper ballots.
