"One dude's quest to save democracy!" Free for All!
is a new documentary about the 2004 Ohio election results, which decided the presidential winner. It covers some familiar ground, but also a lot of details you might have missed. You can see it in theaters on October 8, or view it online right now.

While making a required filing to the state ethics commission, Ohio Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Kenneth Blackwell finds Diebold shares in his stock portfolio that he now claims to have bought "accidentally." Yes, that
Diebold -- the e-voting company whose chairman promised to "deliver the vote
" to George Bush. And yes, that
Blackwell, whose state helped deliver the White House
to the GOP. Blackwell insists that the humble amount of Diebold stock was in one of those "blind trust
" type of arrangements that worked out so rewardingly for Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist. [newsfilter via RawStory.]
