Hello, and welcome to the website for the Stephen Heller
Legal Defense Fund.
Stephen Heller is a whistleblower; he is alleged to have
seen and then exposed legal documents proving 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, thereby defrauding
the state of California, the taxpayers of California, and
disenfranchising the voters of California. On February
21, 2006, Stephen was charged in Los Angeles Superior
Court with 3 felonies: felony access to computer data,
commercial burglary and receiving stolen property. He
pleaded not guilty. This is an outrageous abuse of the
law and of power.
This situation is much bigger than Stephen or his case;
this situation is - or at least should be - of concern to any
American who values clean and fair elections in which
the will of the voters, and not the will of a voting machine
company, determines the election results.
