MyPillow CEO and Trump loyalist Mike Lindell is back with another lie about the 2020 election.
Lindell falsely claims that 23,000 deceased people voted using the same address in Wisconsin.
The businessman made the statements during an interview on his personal website.
Almost a year after former President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election to President Joe Biden, MyPillow CEO and staunch Trump loyalist Mike Lindell still espouses a series of bizarre – and false – claims regarding election results.
This time, the right-wing businessman trumpeted a conspiracy theory that tens of thousands of people voted using a fake Wisconsin address and phone number to help Biden win the state. battleground Trump took on in 2016.
Without offering any evidence, Lindell, in an interview on her own website, michaeljlindell.com, suggested that 23,000 people voted using the same state jail address and claimed that “many of they “weren’t even alive.
“If you can stop, I’ll show you the guys from Wisconsin, just an example, how 23,000 people voted using a jail address and used the same phone number,” he said. “And a lot of them were people who turned out, as we delved into it, they’re not alive anymore, they just used their names obviously, and they don’t live in Wisconsin. “
Lindell, 60, did not provide further details on the alleged prison which was the site of widespread fraud or how 23,000 people might even register using the same phone number.
