41. The Colliers of the Votescam book were early heroes...
in the struggle to expose and prevent voting fraud. They were rock and roll concert promoters who ran against Claude Pepper, an ancient Florida Congressman, for the hell of it. When they encountered voting fraud, they thought it was an aberration and tried to tell various authorities about it, eventually bringing lawsuits, which didn't get far opposed by such as Antonin Scalia and Janet Reno. They devoted their lives to the voting project and produced the book cited above, which is a very worthwhile read.
