Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow and a staunch ally of former President Donald Trump, has announced a free shipping promotion for all purchases from his company. This move comes as Lindell faces increasing financial strain due to mounting legal expenses. Announced on Real America’s Voice War Room, the offer is valid for all orders on MyPillow’s website until November 28.
Lindell, known for his vocal support of unproven claims about the 2020 election being stolen from Trump, has previously used discounts and promotions to support MyPillow during challenging financial times. Currently, he is embroiled in three defamation lawsuits, significantly impacting his and his company’s finances.
The lawsuits against Lindell have been filed by Dominion Voting Systems, Smartmatic, and Eric Coomer, a former Dominion employee. These parties allege that Lindell’s claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election, which independent experts have found no evidence of, have caused significant damage to their reputations. Dominion, which previously settled a lawsuit with Fox News for $787 million, is seeking $1.3 billion from Lindell.
Facing these legal battles, Lindell has admitted to substantial financial losses, including being unable to pay his legal team. His attorneys have indicated they need to withdraw from representing him due to millions of dollars in unpaid fees. Despite these challenges, Lindell remains committed to fighting the lawsuits, which he views as crucial for securing U.S. elections. He has also shifted MyPillow’s sales focus to conservative media outlets and sought financial support from his followers to cover his legal costs.
