Threatening Diebold whistleblower
Steve Heller's story has all the makings of a thriller. Ordinary Joe temping at a law firm gets his hands on some hot documents "which provided smoking gun evidence that Diebold was using illegal, uncertified software in California voting machines."
But it's supposed to end with praise and a movie deal, not three felony convictions, which, according to Scott Thill, "is three more than Diebold has received for using uncertified voting systems, a move that directly and egregiously violated California election laws."
Peter Soby Jr. writes:
The docs Heller is accused of exposing were important evidence. First, they show that Diebold and their attorneys, Jones Day, conspired to mislead the California secretary of state, and that the lie they told was material, and resulted directly in the disenfranchisement of voters. Second, another document demonstrates that Diebold lied to the secretary of state when it represented that certain problems with its software were "fixed."
This document, the release notes for the new software, showed that the problems were not fixed. Third, the documents showed that Diebold had been advised by Jones Day that what it had been doing with its uncertified software was illegal. Fourth, the documents show that Jones Day advised Diebold that it was subject to criminal prosecution. So in a nutshell, Diebold was defrauding the state government and taxpayers of California, and disenfranchising the voters of California. And the documents PROVE it.For all the information on how to help Heller and to contact the LA District attorney, go HERE.
