MyPillow founder and CEO Mike Lindell is less known these days for peddling pillows and more for promoting outlandish conspiracy theories that Democrats "stole" the 2020 election from former President Donald Trump by facilitating widespread voter fraud with elections software companies and foreign adversaries.

While much of the Republican party has vaguely promoted Trump's continued fraud fantasies, Lindell is among the most outrageous and vocal, insisting multiple times that he's in possession of irrefutable proof that the election was stolen. Like clockwork, Lindell promotes an event—such as his failed cyber symposium—where he claims he'll provide this proof and that it will result in Trump's reinstatement.

And, predictably, the so-called proof falls short and the goalpost moves again.

Lindell has coordinated expensive events, hired so-called cyber investigators, and fought billion dollar defamation lawsuits in his effort to substantiate his election delusions.

Now, CNBC reports the sum Lindell has allegedly spent on this grift: around $25 million—half of his supposed net worth.

What's more, Lindell has vowed to keep spending until the election is reversed, telling CNBC:

“We either only have two paths: either [the election] gets changed before the 2022 election or we lose our country forever. I will spend every dime I have."

The report resulted in even more mockery.

Some even encouraged him to go broke.
