Event Type: Screening
Tells the story of who he was, his relationship was to the people of the Iron Range, northern Minnesota - as well as to the nation and world. In Minnesota, Wellstone was regarded with love or profound respect, even from the Fox News-watchers who were primed to think he was Enemy Number One. The three fundamental questions in investigating a crime are motive, means, and opportunity. There was something Wellstone was doing, questions he was asking, that he had to be stopped publicly; his death was a warning: don't ask these questions; don't look into this. In looking into this story, we see how honest cops are frozen out, witnesses are intimidated into silence and the public is fearful of thinking such terrible thoughts about its own government. Paul Wellstone could have become our first US President of Jewish ethnicity, and he would have been truly progressive and good for our country!
