    To say the least. You will watch most of this with your mouth open. I have double-checked some of the facts and found them to hold up. I cannot understand why this was not a bigger deal.

  • Eye opening, must see by 10

    A true affirmation of how dirty politics is rooted in every branch of government.

    We are at the same crossroads.. the census.. a bloodthirsty desire for Republicans to win State governorships and be in charge of project redmap. The ability to draw all Congressional districts that will be in force until 2030. When again they will do whatever they can to win states and draw maps again. This documentary made my jaw drop! I knew Republicans won? But how they won? Was a multilevel multidisciplinary coup! This documentary reviews the facts of the 2002 Alabama governors race and all the conflicts of interest and refusal to recount the votes to this day.
