MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has for a long time been a supporter of the unfounded theory that the 2020 presidential elections had been rigged and stolen. His claims have now extended beyond the 2020 presidential election as he has claimed without any evidence that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had received a boost due to voter fraud in the latest midterm elections.

Lindell made a number of appearances on a streaming network he created called Lindell TV over the past few days. The stream airs a 24-hour feed which features many different conspiracy theories and guests who support them. In a viral clip from the broadcast, Lindell starts to talk about election fraud before being stopped by his attorney temporarily.

He then continues to say that Miami-Dade County which was a traditionally Democratic county but was flipped by Republican DeSantis shows a clear deviation from regular voting patterns. He added that this is why he would like to investigate what happened there as he did not believe that Republicans just naturally won the county.

Lindell, who is a vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump, has insisted that voting machines have widely been used to promote widespread voter fraud both in the 2020 presidential election and after it. This statement has already gotten him in trouble legally. In October, In October, the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed Lindell’s attempt to block a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems. Smartmatic, an election technology and services company, has also filed a defamation lawsuit against Lindell.
