MyPillow founder Mike Lindell is one of former President Donald Trump's most vocal supporters, and he continues to broadcast the absurd lie that the 2020 presidential election was "stolen" from the 45th President.

The culprit, according to Lindell, was Dominion Voting Systems, the election software company that's become a prime target for conspiracy theories about the 2020 election. Lindell repeated the fantasy that Dominion worked with Democrats to switch Trump votes to votes for now-President Joe Biden.

As with most conspiracy theories, the claim isn't based in reality. In fact, Trump won an overwhelming majority of the counties that used Dominion.

But thanks to lies like that of Lindell's, Dominion's reputation has taken a hit. As a result, Lindell is the latest person the company has served with a lawsuit for a whopping $1.3 billion.

Dominion cites Lindell's numerous social media posts and television appearances where he repeated the lie that Dominion worked with Democrats and foreign entities to steal the 2020 election.

The elections company didn't hold back in its opening statement, tying Lindell's lies to his need to sell pillows.

Counsel for Dominion wrote:

"As when MyPillow previously faced legal action for deceptive marketing campaigns, Lindell knew there was no real 'evidence' supporting his claims. ... But Lindell—a talented salesman and former professional card counter—sells the lie to this day because the lie sells pillows."

The statement goes on to cite the numerous discounts and incentives MyPillow's website offered to Trump supporters, one of which told users to type the code "QANON" for $45 off. QAnon is the deranged conspiracy theory that the 45th President was sent to expose a secret network of satanic, cannibal pedophiles secretly controlling the United States government.

People weren't sad to see Lindell be held accountable for his constant lies about the election.

Lindell continues to face backlash across the internet.

Lindell joins the ranks of Trump's former lawyer Rudy Giuliani, pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell, and others who've been sued by election software companies for their 2020 election lies.
