And: Before Randy Waldron, Jr. became an adult, he was the victim of identity theft that not only put him in debt to the tune of two and a half million dollars, but left him with a criminal record. He couldn't hold down a job, buy a house or even a car. The person responsible? Randy's once estranged father, Randy Waldron, Sr. Fighting to clear his good name became a struggle not just with his father, but with the South Florida legal system. ABC News' Chief Legal Correspondent Jim Avila travels with Waldron, Jr. to Florida, to confront his father. How will the dramatic meeting end?

Also: What drives those big swings in public opinion? What drives those big swings in the stock market? How much does the press contribute to it? When people are scared, do they just panic and not think for themselves? John Stossel looks at the madness � and wisdom � of the crowds.

Plus: Eight years after the 2000 presidential election voting debacle, we are still hearing about broken voting machines and there are lingering concerns about the proper functioning of the electronic machines. If the technology is there to fix it, as many suggest, then who is standing in the way? John Stossel says "Give Me a Break" to what was supposed to be the voting machine fix.

"20/20" is anchored by Elizabeth Vargas and John Stossel. David Sloan is executive producer.
