Alabama’s Republican Secretary of State Tears Into Mike Lindell’s Election Hacking Claims
For close to a year now, Mike Lindell has been on a one man crusade to overturn the results of the 2020 election. And he’s taken it much farther than just claiming that the results were rigged in the states that were close.
Last week, the My Pillow creator said that the voting machines were hacked in ruby red Alabama. This claim was furiously rebuked by Secretary of State, John Merrill.
When asked about Lindell, Merrill told AL.com:
“‘All our (voting) machines are custom-built. There’s no modem component. You can’t influence them through a cell phone or a landline. There’s no way they can be probed or numbers manipulated.’ Merrill said Lindell purchased a copy of Alabama’s voting rolls, a service that’s available to anyone. Any analysis that shows manipulation is wrong, he added. ‘We didn’t have any vote changes. Zero. It’s not possible to have any vote changed.'”
These statements from Merrill aren’t likely to change Lindell’ stance. The Pillow entrepreneur seems to be completely oblivious to the embarrassment he’s creating or the harm he is doing.”
