Officials in Idaho have sent MyPillow CEO and staunch Trump supporter Mike Lindell a cease-and-desist letter over his continued voter fraud claims.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The letter, which was sent to Lindell on Tuesday by Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney and Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, requested that he “promptly remove all false statements about Idaho’s elections from your website” and pay $6,558.83 to the secretary of state’s office for the money it spent refuting his voter fraud claims, as reported by the Idaho Statesman.
A document by Lindell titled “The Big Lie” claims that 35,357 votes in Idaho were “electronically manipulated” to switch from then-President Donald Trump to Joe Biden, according to the Idaho Press. The Idaho government conducted an investigation into the claims last year and found a margin of error of 0.1% across three counties, well below Lindell’s allegations, the outlet said.
“Despite knowing your statements about Idaho’s elections are false, you have not removed your ‘Big Lie’ chart and continue to perpetuate your false statements,” the letter to Lindell stated.
The letter also goes on to say that Lindell’s claims caused harm to the “honest and hardworking civil servants and volunteers that supported the election process in Idaho,” the outlet reported.
Trump won the state during the 2020 election by just over 63% of the vote.
