MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell had better hope he can unload some more of his crappy pillows and bed coverings, because he’s about to get hit with a hefty bill for the audit of Idaho’s 2020 election results that he demanded by making false claims about voter fraud.
Chad Houck, the Idaho Chief Deputy Secretary of State, said on CNN Thursday that the state will indeed be sending a bill to Lindell, according to Mediaite:
Houck joined CNN’s John Berman on Thursday to talk about the recent power dispute between Idaho Governor Brad Little and Lieutenant Governor Janice McGeachin, both Republicans. As Houck broke down the implications of the spat, Berman turned the conversation toward Lindell’s conspiracy theories that the state’s 2020 results were electronically hacked.
Lindell’s fraud claims prompted an audit in the state even though, Berman noted, former President Donald Trump handily won Idaho. Houck explained that Idaho looked into Lindell’s claims, and he broke down how “there’s absolutely no validity to them” with how the state counts its votes.
Berman asked Houck:
It remains to be seen, however, if Lindell will fork over the money even if Idaho does send him a bill for the audit. Since Lindell is such good buddies with failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump, you have to wonder if he also stiffs people for bills he runs up.
If Lindell is reluctant to pay, Idaho can take him to court and demand he prove the specious allegations about voter fraud he made had any basis in fact. If it’s found that he was lying, he would indeed be forced to reimburse the Gem State for every dime they spent on the bogus audit.
