Costner, Grammer Sued by former Bush Aide for Copyright Infringement

Bradley Blakeman, a former aide to president George W. Bush and a regular political commentator on MSNBC, is suing Disney and the stars of the film Swing Vote (Kevin Costner, Kelsey Grammer) for copyright infringement. Blakeman alleges the movie's concept was lifted almost entirely from his Go, November screenplay. (He also claims to have spoken to Grammer about playing a Republican president--as he does in Swing Vote--in a film version of his work.)
