Review of "Murder, Spies, Voting Lies": "Most explosive documentary in recent memory"
I've seen the film and I concur. This is not just about election fraud, the multitudinous evidence of fraud in every nook and cranny of the electoral system. This is a personal drama involving corruption in high places, espionage left uninvestigated, a highly suspicious death likely a murder to conceal corruption and crime in high places.

IF YOU SEE NO OTHER MOVIE THIS YEAR, SEE THIS FILM, AND DO IT BEFORE THE ELECTION. I'd also suggest your buying the DVD or several of them and show it around. It isn't just an array of facts. This is a mystery that held my attention from beginning to end, and I already had read nearly all the info presented. This is the best I've seen of the genre, not just because I'm so interested in election integrity issues. It just is. It goes to the heart of what democracy should mean today and MSM collusion by silence in crime.

From the OpEd News review:

MSVL is Patty Sharaf's second feature, the first being Citizen Stan about activist Stanley Sheinbaum. When Sharaf caught Friedman (Brad of BradBlog) interviewing Curtis in early 2005 at the Sundance Film Festival, she recognized the import of his story. She also saw it get buried. OpEdNews reached her at the New Jersey Film Festival where MSVL premiered at Rutgers University last weekend.

"Working the news business as a techie has taught me first hand: some of the most important stories never make air. I thought I could put Curtis in touch with news people who would want to hear his story. While they wanted to know about it initially, nobody would report on it. Seeing that this was one of those stories falling through the cracks, I felt obligated to film the next meeting between Brad and Clint, which took place in Nashville."


In a telephone interview Friedman advised, "Until you see the film, if you think you know the Clint Curtis story, you probably don't. The full story is creepy as shit. This is not just an election integrity documentary. We've got Chinese spies and dead guys!" And a dead dog. The day Curtis appeared in Washington, D.C. to testify, December 13, 2004, his two-year-old German shepherd, Champ, was shot dead. When talking about this in the film, Curtis' grief is palpable.

MSVL exposes widespread censorship of this frightening story and suggests that authorities wrongly shut down the investigation into Lemme's death and into electoral cyber fraud. Sharaf carefully explores the intersections between the alleged espionage, election fraud, and the many mysteries surrounding the death of Raymond Lemme. Although FDOT had officially terminated the investigation into Curtis' charges, Lemme continued to pursue it in 2003. On their last visit, Lemme told Curtis he had traced the matter "all the way to the top" and planned to finalize the matter in the next few weeks. He assured Curtis he would "be pleased with the outcome."

A close look at the details surrounding Lemme's death certainly raises questions, suggesting a high-level cover-up. Details in the police report conflict with other information.

2. No surprise to me that stories like this "fall through the cracks"
Journalist know that their jobs are on the line if they get to close to the truth.
Crime does pay if it is done at the top of the food chain.

4. The link in the original post seems to have changed.
Here's a link to BradBlog that will get to the article I think and a lot of other links as well:

5. Even for someone who has followed Clint Curtis for 4 years, this movie was an eye-opener.

I think Clint Curtis is a key linch-pin in the burgeoning landfill of evidence that 2004 (and elections before and since) have been stolen electronically and in a multitude of other ways. There were elements of his story that I had heard a bit about (the Lemme death and the killing of Clint's dog), but this film fills out that information in great depth. It also documents a culture of corruption vis a vis Yang, Tom Feeney, NASA, etc. that I knew nothing whatsoever about.

Personally, I was exceptionally pleased to see that Patty Sharaf had used extensive footage that she obtained at our National Election Reform Conference in Nashville back in April, 2005. By my count, hers is the seventh election integrity documentary to use at least some footage and/or interviews from that conference. By far, "Murder, Spies and Voting Lies" has presented the most frightfully realistic scenario of the under-belly of the country we have been living in for a while now, a country where stolen elections are but a small note in the symphony of shameful acts that is now choking our body politic to the point of extinction.

See this film. Then get ready for what's coming next.
