Director J.T. Waldron, maker of the aspartame industry-busting films "Sweet Misery" and "Sweet Remedy", once again takes on alleged fraud and high office shenanigans in his new film, "Fatally Flawed", a true detective story about a two billion dollar transportation measure passed under suspicious circumstances in Pima County, Arizona.

Tucson, Arizona (PRWEB) August 10, 2009 -- Director J.T. Waldron, maker of the aspartame industry-busting films "Sweet Misery" and "Sweet Remedy", once again takes on alleged fraud and high office shenanigans in his new film, "Fatally Flawed", a true detective story about a two billion dollar transportation measure passed under suspicious circumstances in Pima County, Arizona.

"We discovered this story by accident in our own back yard. The Regional Transportation Authority in Pima County created a traffic ballot initiative without telling those who would be most adversely affected that they planned to bulldoze homes and offices along Broadway," J.T. recalls. "After talking to our neighbors on the street, we discovered that most of the small businesses had no idea what was happening. When we later learned that investigators found evidence consistent with potential tampering in the RTA election, we knew we had a story. We just didn't know how far it would go."

After three years of documenting one jaw-dropping event after another, the rest of the world now has a chance to see this election mystery unravel through the eyes of seasoned lawyer and activist Bill Risner. It quickly becomes evident that what appeared to be a public mandate to expand the city's roads was a likely case of election fraud. The camera scoops the news as citizens seeking answers are met with resistance from election facilitators, local politicians and even the state's own attorney general. Persistent unanswered questions generated by a lawsuit seeking release of database files and new evidence of possible wrongdoing on the part of elections division personnel lead to an equally suspicious investigation by the Arizona attorney general. The lawsuit at the center of this film (Democratic Party of Pima County v, Pima County Board of Supervisors, CR-2007-2073) resulted in the largest release of election database files in U.S. history.
"This is not just about Pima County. It's about our country!"

In a heated confrontation with county supervisors, Election Defense Alliance investigator John Brakey says: "This is not about just Pima County. It's about our country." The problems with local elections documented in this film are taking place throughout America. J.T. is well aware of this trend. "'Fatally Flawed' is a success if it inspires citizens in other states and counties to turn over stones in their own back yards."

"Fatally Flawed" will play in Iowa City's Landlocked Film Festival at the end of this month and will premiere in Tucson on September 16th at the Loft Theatre.
