More Tears On MyPillow: Lindell’s Lawyer Fired From Law Firm After Filing Fraudulent Lawsuit
One day after he filed a lawsuit on behalf of MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell against electronic voting companies Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic, Barnes & Thornburg partner Alec Beck has been let go from the firm. The suit alleges that the companies are weaponizing litigation to silence Lindell’s claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
Beck, a labor and employment lawyer in Minnesota, wasn’t authorized to file the suit, the firm said in a statement provided to the press. He was touted as having more than 30 years of labor and employment law experience, including appearing before state and federal courts and administrative agencies like the National Labor Relations Board and the Labor Department.
Dominion sued Lindell in February seeking $1.3 billion in damages, alleging he knowingly made false accusations that the company helped rig the election for President Joe Biden. In April, MyPillow fired back with a $1.6 million suit claiming Dominion was stifling his free speech. Lindell’s complaint in a Minnesota federal court, which is filled with quotes from George Orwell’s classic novel, “1984,” alleges that the companies sued Lindell earlier this year to try to intimidate him. Lindell has repeatedly claimed that security flaws in Dominion and Smartmatic electric voting machines influenced the outcome of the election.
As if the lunacy surrounding Lindell wasn’t enough, Rudy Giuliani is now shilling for him.
