Alabama official dismisses Lindell claim that 100K votes were flipped from Trump to Biden
Alabama’s secretary of state is dismissing claims by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell that 100,000 votes in November were flipped from former President Trump to President Biden, contending that such a situation is “not possible.”
“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,” Secretary of State John Merrill told AL.com. “We didn’t have any vote changes. Zero. It’s not possible to have any vote changed,” he added.
In a video posted Sunday, Lindell said that Alabama’s state’s voting system was “hacked ... just like every other state,” according to AL.com. He said people may have accessed the system through bluetooth technology without offering additional evidence to bolster the claim or saying who he thought was involved.
The MyPillow CEO is entrenched in a defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems. The voting company — which has also filed suit against against former Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell — says the three defendants claimed without evidence that Dominion rigged the 2020 presidential election in favor of Biden by manipulating votes. https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/573469-alabama-official-dismisses-mike-lindell-claim-that-100k-votes-were
