, CEO of MyPillow, was reportedly kicked out of a Republican governors' event late Tuesday night.
According to Politico
, Lindell went to pick up his credentials for the Republican Governors Association
meeting in Nashville, only to be told that he would not be allowed to attend any official RGA events.
“These events are only for RGA members, and Mike Lindell is not currently an RGA member,” an unidentified source told the website.
Todd Starnes, a right-wing commentator, confirmed the report on Twitter
, saying Lindell told him his VIP credentials and pass had been revoked.
Lindell announced earlier in the day that he planned to confront two Republican governors at the event: Brian Kemp
and Doug Ducey of Arizona
. Former President Donald Trump
lost both states in November, prompting him to attack
the governors and spread wild and disproven conspiracy theories about the elections
in those states.
like Lindell have bought into the big lie
and are promoting it.
“I'm not sure how you sleep
at night, Doug,” Lindell said on Steve Bannon's podcast, “and Kemp's even worse.”
Kemp is "hiding something," Lindell insisted, despite the lack of evidence.
“I hope I get him one-on-one tonight, him and Doug, and be able to say, ‘Why, why would you do this to America?’” Lindell said, adding that the two governors could be saved if they just believed his conspiracy theories.
Lindell blamed his ejection from the RGA event on the two governors, according to Starnes.
Dominion Voting Systems
is suing Lindell for $1.3 billion in libel over his debunked claims of voter fraud, and he is also among a number of far-right figures banned from Twitter for violating the platform's civic integrity policy with those conspiracy theories. Lindell recently launched his own "free speech" platform in retaliation, but he has already stated that he will not allow speech he does not agree with.
