Following a visit to Alabama last week, the MyPillow CEO declared that 100,000 votes in the 2020 presidential election in the state had somehow been flipped.
“This was the one time we’re going to have to do a little bit of a deeper dive here,” Lindell said by way of explanation. “On the surface you can’t see where it happened. What I guarantee they’ve had to do in Alabama is the bad people … went deeper into the well. Very deep into the well of how they did the flips.”
Lindell, and this will stun you, offered no proof for such a massive allegation. And almost immediately, John Merrill, the Republican secretary of state in Alabama, flatly rejected Lindell’s claim.
In short: He has zero reason to lie or cover up any sort of election fraud. None.
Which is pretty widespread voter fraud. The sort of thing that, if it actually existed, would surely have caught the eye of the Republican secretary of state, right? Right!
Then there’s this: Trump won Alabama by almost half a million votes; he took 62% to Biden’s nearly 37%. Why, you might ask yourself, would election meddlers conduct an operation designed, according to Lindell, to flip votes from Trump to Biden in a state that was on no one’s competitive radar and where the incumbent president absolutely swamped the Democratic challenger?
“Despite repeated warnings and efforts to share the facts with him, Mr. Lindell has continued to maliciously spread false claims about Dominion, each time giving empty assurances that he would come forward with overwhelming proof,” said the CEO of Dominion when the suit was filed back in February.
Lindell seems entirely determined to continue on his flights of fantasy, facts (and legal problems) be damned.
