Mike Lindell pushes to halt use of voting machines in elections

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is bankrolling a nationwide series of lawsuits to stop the use of voting machines in local and national elections.

Speaking to Insider on Sunday, Lindell said that his attempt to halt the use of electronic voting machines in all 50 states has kicked off, with the first injunction filed in Arizona on Friday.

The filing lists gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake and Rep. Mark Finchem as plaintiffs. Lake and Finchem, who are funded by Lindell and represented by lawyers including Alan Dershowitz, are suing Kathleen Hobbs, Arizona’s Secretary of State, and members of the Maricopa and Pima County boards of supervisors.

The filing calls itself “a civil rights action for declaratory and injunctive relief to prohibit the use of electronic voting machines.”

It also calls for Arizona authorities to halt the use of any electronic voting system until the “system is made open to the public and subjected to scientific analysis by objective experts,” who will “determine whether it is secure from manipulation or intrusion.”

The complaint from Lake and Finchem says the initiative is “not an attempt to undo the past” or re-litigate the 2020 election, arguing instead that the use of “unverified electronic voting machines” undermines public confidence in the validity of future election results.

Trump expressed approval of Lake and Finchem’s suit during his rally in Ohio on Saturday. “Every state should follow the lead of the Patriots in Arizona where yesterday Kari Lake, Mark Finchem, and others filed a lawsuit to ban electronic voting machines and replace them with a transparent hand count,” Trump said. “Hand, hand, hand count system! Paper — paper, paper, paper! We don’t have to worry about signals being sent down from the sky!”

Lindell told Insider that the costs for the legal fees involved in the Arizona suit amounted to around $500,000.
