SYNOPSIS of "Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election" from http://www.gregpalast.com/unprecedented.htm Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election is the riveting story about the battle for the Presidency in Florida and the undermining of democracy in America. Filmakers Richard Ray Perez and Joan Sekler examine modern America's most controversial political contest: the Election of George W. Bush. What emerges is a disturbing picture of an election marred by suspicious irregularities, electoral injustices, and sinister voter purges in a state governed by the winning candidate's brother. George W. Bush stole the presidency of the United States .... and got away with it. "....the movie highlights those on the front ines - from the African-Americans who were turned away from the polling booths for assorted reasons. .... In one memorable scene the filmmakers freeze-frame a 'protest' against the ballot recount, identifying participants as staff members of Republican elected officials." - Elaine Dutka, Los Angeles Times.
