This film recounts the tales of election fraud in the 2004 presidential race as well as tales of voter disenfranchisement in 2006 elections. This movie should be a wake-up call for everyone and be a reminder of things to come as we approach the 2008 elections.
UNCOUNTED is an explosive new documentary that shows how the election fraud that changed the outcome of the 2004 election led to even greater fraud in 2006 - and now looms as an unbridled threat to the outcome of the 2008 election. This controversial feature length film by Emmy award-winning director David Earnhardt examines in factual, logical, and yet startling terms how easy it is to change election outcomes and undermine election integrity across the U.S. Noted computer programmers, statisticians, journalists, and experienced election officials provide the irrefutable proof.
UNCOUNTED shares well documented stories about the spine-chilling disregard for the right to vote in America. In Florida, computer programmer Clint Curtis is directed by his boss to create software that will “flip” votes from one candidate to another. In Utah, County Clerk Bruce Funk is locked out of his office for raising questions about security flaws in electronic voting machines. Californian Steve Heller gets convicted of a felony after he leaks secret documents detailing illegal activities committed by a major voting machine company. And Tennessee entrepreneur, Athan Gibbs, finds verifiable voting a hard sell in America and dies before his dream of honest elections can be realized.

Five years, countless lives lost, and no end in sight.
That's the thought which comes to mind when I think about the war in Iraq and it's the overwhelming response I heard from people I talked to in my travels last night at the various anti-war vigils held across Connecticut.
Unlike years past when I attended the Connecticut Opposes the War rallies in Hartford (2006, 2007), for this anniversary, I decided to travel to smaller vigils in Connecticut and get a sense of what people are saying in their communities about our present situation in Iraq.
With thousands of lives lost, more proof that the war was based on fear and untruths, and the sense that conditions in this country are worse than when the war started, people I talked to had a great deal to say about the failures of the Bush administration as well as their desire that the next president has the wisdom to bring our troops home as quickly as possible.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.
The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.
Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.
Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
