Museum of Government Waste is an upcomingTemplate:When documentary produced by American Film Renaissance that follows Florida resident Greg Knapp on his mission to obtain an earmark from Congress to construct a museum dedicated to careless government spending. The film aims to show citizens how “elected officials spend [their] money, as painful as the truth is.”[1]Template:Primary source inline


Ellen and Jim Hubbard spent five years following the pursuit of a Congressional earmark. When meeting with members of Congress, the crew opted to not use traditional cameras and sound equipment. Instead, they used hidden cameras, hoping to capture footage revealing unexpected places that tax dollars are going.

After filming, the group has said it is opening an actual Museum of Government Waste.[1]Template:Primary source inline

The film is set to be released in the fall of 2012.[no citations needed here]
