Mike Lindell Claims 850-year-old Person Voted in 2020 Election

MyPillow CEO and right-wing conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell has claimed that an 850-year-old voted in the 2020 Election, as well as more than 2000 people who were aged over 200.

Lindell, who for months has claimed he has proof that the 2020 election results were hacked despite never providing anything remotely substantial, gave no further details such as the name of the apparent 850-year-old, or where they voted.

The clip of Lindell making the unsubstantiated claims on his own website was posted onto Twitter by Salon reporter Zachary Petrizzo.

"I'm going to give an example today, and I'm not going to say what state we pulled from the voter rolls to one of our team, we have a team that goes through all of it now with this other system that pulls up all anomalies. What I mean by that is five people voting from the same address," Lindell said.

"I'll give you an example today, 2650 people over the age of 100. Now you might say 'well, that could be.' 2000 of them were over 200 [years old]. Would you like to live in that state?

"They're obviously deceased, but one guy was 850 years old.

"These are facts. You can get them from your own state's thing," Lindell added without clarifying what state or what thing people could use to check where these voters aged between 200 and 850 could be found.

Lindell, one of the main pushers of the so-called Big Lie that Donald Trump won the last election, has even falsely claimed voter fraud took place in a state in which the GOP candidate overwhelmingly won.

Lindell is facing a bill after three counties in Idaho—a state which Trump won nearly 64 percent of the votes in 2020—carried out audits on the back of his baseless claims ballots were manipulated electronically in all 44 of its counties in order to switch votes from Trump to Joe Biden.

Lindell made the claim despite the fact that at least seven counties in Idaho do not count ballots electronically.

After the recount failed to reveal any evidence of voter fraud, Idaho Chief Deputy Secretary of State Chad Houck said he is planning to send Lindell a bill for the expenses that occurred while carrying out the audit.

"Why not try and get Lindell to reimburse the state for having to refute his false claim?" Houck told the Idaho Statesman.

"While our team is always looking for possible vulnerabilities, this allegation was patently without merit from the first look," Houck added in a statement.

"It takes hard work to build confidence in a state's election system, and careless accusations like this can cause tremendous harm. Doing nothing and saying nothing would have been like conceding its truth."

Speaking to Newsweek, Houck added the secretary of state's office is also considering legal action against Lindell.

"We have discussed this with our counsel and are considering options-no specific actions have been taken," he said.

Lindell has been contacted for comment.
