Time for Mike Lindell to pay the piper.

On Wednesday a federal judge ruled that the MyPillow CEO must pay $5 million to the man who debunked his 2020 election claims.

Following the 2020 presidential election, Lindell launched the “Prove Mike Wrong” challenge, which he promised $5 million to anyone who could prove that data pointing to election fraud was not related to the 2020 election and was a product of Chinese election interference.

Robert Zeidman, a computer forensics expert from Nevada, was able to prove the pro-Trump businessman’s claims were false but has still yet to be paid his reward.

Mediaite continues:

That led to last spring’s arbitration panel, which also decided that Lindell had to pay Zeidman the reward that he soundly earned. (That arbitration panel was actually in the fine print of the “Prove Mike Wrong” contest.) After that decision, Lindell vowed to take the case to court, which resulted in Wednesday’s ruling.

In depositions related to the case, Lindell indicated that he never thought he would have to pay.

Lindell also claimed that he was “broke” after being “canceled” for spreading election lies. (Though he was also “canceled” by Fox News for being broke.) Lindell was one of many parties sued for defamation related to the 2020 election by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic.
