Hello to the family and friends of Steve Heller. My name is Peter Soby, Jr. I am a very close friend of Steve’s. I am writing on his behalf, with the advice and consent of his lawyer, because Steve is in serious legal trouble and he needs our help – not $$ help, but help by writing a letter, making a phone call, sending a fax or an email, things just about anyone can do.

Steve is a whistleblower; he is alleged to have seen and then exposed legal documents showing that Diebold Election Systems, Inc., the country’s leading manufacturer of electronic voting machines and voting machine software, was using illegal, uncertified software in their California voting machines. He has been charged with 3 felonies, which is an outrageous abuse of the law and of power. Details on what is happening to Steve and how to help are in the following links. Please feel free to forward this email to anyone and everyone. Read on…

First, here is a link to a story in the Feb. 22 edition of the Los Angeles Times. If for some reason you cannot open the link, let me know and I will email you the text of the article.

Man Pleads Not Guilty in Voting Device Case

Now, here are more details on this situation, with corroborating links, from I post I wrote for Arianna Huffington’s blog. This is the link with important information on how to help Steve Heller.

Whistleblower Charged With Three Felonies for Exposing Diebold’s Crimes

Another way to help Steve is by writing a letter to the editor of the Los Angeles Times. You can use the same talking points from my post (the link above) in your letter to the editor. Directions on how to send a letter to the editor can be found at this link under http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/letters/ Their snail mail address is Letters to the Editor, Los Angeles Times, 202 W. 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. They want letters to be 150 words or less, with your name, address and daytime phone number.

The next link is to a post from the same blog written by Lyn Davis Lear

Whistleblower Hero is Threatened with Prison for Exposing Diebold

I thank you in advance for any help you might be able to give Steve. He is a patriot and a whistleblower and should not be prosecuted. And again, this email can be forwarded to anyone you think might be interested.
