Even though he has made dozens of specious allegations that later proved to be completely wrong, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is back again, suggesting that this week’s GOP primary in the state of Georgia was “stolen” from candidates loyal to former President Donald Trump who lost badly.
Lindell, you may recall, began saying soon after the results of the 2020 presidential election made it clear that Trump had lost (and lost badly) to President Joe Biden that courts were about to overturn the election and declare that Trump had indeed won reelection.
One deadline from for Trump’s reinstatement to the presidency would pass and he’d create another one, making him look more than a little bit unhinged.
Speaking at a Trump “Loser’s Tour” rally in Wyoming on Saturday, Lindell told a reporter from Right Side Broadcasting Network:
“It was stolen, there were algorithms used in Georgia but we caught them. We were watching, everyone was watching this time.”
Referencing Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA), who was running against incumbent Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) and lost badly to the sitting Georgia elections official, Lindell raged:
“Everything in Georgia was stolen!”
A few minutes later, Lindell added:
“Brad Raffensperger is the biggest criminal in the country… Brad gets 51 percent? No he didn’t , he stole it!”
Stole it? Not even close, as the results showed:
On Tuesday, Raffensperger defeated his Trump-backed opponent, U.S. Rep. Jody Hice, by nearly 19points. He did it by closing the gap among Republican voters, attracting Democrats who had celebrated his decision to uphold the law and, with 52 percent of the vote in a four-candidate field, avoiding the runoff that even his allies were predicting just days ago.
As you’d expect, Lindell offered no evidence of his allegations. He was too busy spinning his fact-free conspiracy theory to provide any proof.
Donald Trump is no longer the sine qua non for Republicans who want to win elections. It’s even beginning to look like his endorsement has become the kiss of death for some in the GOP.
