From yesterday's Danbury Chamber of Commerce luncheon, here's the unedited video footage of the "45 dollar a plate" debate between Mark Boughton and Gary Goncalves.
If you want to download the video to you computer, you can do so by right clicking on the following link and saving the file to your computer (WARNING: The file size of the video is large so only attempt to download the file using a high-speed connection).
NOTE: I didn't have my normal tripod so there will be a couple of moments where the video will shake. I also forgot to adjust the shutter speed of my camera so the brightness of the video is a tad bit low. In the interest of time, I didn't adjust the brightness or edit the file during the production process.
BONUS: Here's the post-debate interviews myself and Ideas at Work and Beyond local access show host Marty Heiser conducted:

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.
