Dominion Voting Systems filed a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against Mike Lindell on Monday over the MyPillow founder's repeated and discredited claims that it helped steal the 2020 election for President Joe Biden.
The voting software company is also suing his Chaska-based company, accusing him of embarking on an election fraud crusade as a way to boost MyPillow's brand and sales, and raise his political profile for a possible run for governor in Minnesota.
"He's not the guy from the infomercials," said Megan Meier, an attorney for Dominion who compared Lindell's current activities to his long past of gambling. "We're talking about a former professional card counter who's gifted with numbers, interested in game theory, algorithms and deviations, and he knows what he's doing."
