MyPillow Guy Is Reportedly Hiding Pro-Trump Election Worker Under FBI Investigation for Security Breach
Earlier this month, MyPillow CEO and prominent conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell held a cyber symposium to further amplify his fantasy that the 2020 election was stolen. After promising irrefutable proof of election fraud would be revealed at the symposium, Lindell—once again—failed to deliver.
A prominent speaker among the litany of disinformation peddlers was Mesa County, Colorado elections official Tina Peters.
Peters, an emphatic supporter of former President Donald Trump, sent secretly recorded video and election data to Ron Watkins, the 8kun administrator whom many believe was secretly the "Q" of QAnon. The low-quality video shows Peters asking questions to a Dominion Voting Systems employee in an attempt to vindicate her election fraud fantasies.
If that breach wasn't bad enough, Watkins shared the materials to his followers without redacting Peters' password to the election system's basic input/output system (BIOS) motherboard.
Now, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has announced it's working with the Colorado District Attorney to investigate the catastrophic data breach. Colorado's Secretary of State attempted to coordinate an inspection of Mesa County's elections equipment to determine the level it was compromised, but Peters was on Lindell's private jet, according to Vice News.
Vice further reported that Lindell is now hiding Peters in an undisclosed safehouse, claiming his interest is in protecting her safety and not to escape questioning from the Bureau.
Social media users are crying foul.
