Gabriel Cheifetz, Glenn Scott, and Chris "Shakademic" Johnson are coworkers at Phillips Community TV (PCTV), a youth media organization based in Minneapolis. When Minnesota suddenly became a "battleground" state in 2004, Cheifetz, Scott, and Shakademic borrowed some cameras, bought some cheap imitation rhinestone chains, and set off in search of the biggest names in Minnesota politics.
