Following MyPillow founder Mike Lindell’s latest unsubstantiated assertion of 2020 election fraud, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) denounced him as a madman.
Lindell asserted that thousands of votes were stolen in Cheney’s home state of Wyoming, which went for Trump in a landslide.
“In Wyoming, we have a name for this.” This week, Cheney tweeted, “Lunacy.”
Cheney’s campaign stepped up its attack on Lindell, who is being sued for promoting Trump’s ludicrous assertions that he won the 2020 election. Tammy Hooper, the pillow magnate’s campaign manager, called him a “unhinged conspiracy theorist” and a “out-of-state wacko” on Wednesday.
“Everyone in Wyoming, including the Republican state party leadership, elected officials, and candidates, has a responsibility to condemn these unfounded allegations and make clear that we will not allow an out-of-state nut to question our patriotism or attack the integrity of our public servants,” Hooper said in a statement.
Lindell made his remarks at a Trump rally in Wyoming over the weekend, where Cheney is facing a Republican primary challenge from Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman.

“Wyoming stole 20,000 votes in the presidential election.” In Wyoming, that’s over 10% of your home [total cast] votes. “Everything was gone,” Lindell said on Saturday to the Cowboy State Daily.
Since President Joe Biden’s election, numerous lawsuits alleging fraud have been dismissed. A federal judge last week upheld the dismissal of yet another frivolous lawsuit.
Dominion and Smartmatic, the providers of voting software, are suing Lindell and a number of other defendants, alleging that his election lies defamed the companies.
