The ‘Pillow Guy’ Mike Lindell is among those who are calling for hand counted ballots, including in South Dakota, but who have provided no proof of voter fraud to warrant it. Here he embraces former Mesa County Clerk and Recorder (Colo.) Tina Peters at his Cyber Symposium in South Dakota in 2021 where she was a speaker. Peters faces seven felony charges for allegedly allowing a copy of a hard drive to be made during an update of election equipment in 2021 in search of proof of false election conspiracy theories. Lindell is also embroiled in several, high-profile legal challenges.
