A filmmaker known for a film that claims 9/11 was an alien conspiracy is directing a documentary promoting baseless election fraud claims — a movie that features people working for the Arizona Senate’s election audit, that was filmed at the audit site and is based on a book written by a man who is raising money from Trump supporters to fund the audit.
Former Overstock.com CEO and Trump ally Patrick Byrne is the main star in a film called “The Deep Rig,” which is based off a book Byrne wrote. Byrne is the founder of a Florida-based 501(c)(4) that is aiming to raise $2.8 million to fund the Arizona audit.
The trailer for the movie, which is set to be released later this month, portrays the Arizona audit as critical in proving the widely debunked fraud claims, and features several people involved in the Arizona audit.
The first person on screen is former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who is sitting in the stands at Veterans Memorial Coliseum, where the audit is taking place.
