Mike Lindell, the CEO of My Pillow and a supporter of former President Trump who has actively promoted unfounded theories denying the 2020 election results, has been instructed to pay $5 million to a software developer who disproved Lindell's election data.
A private arbitrator has ordered Lindell, who claimed that he would give $5 million to anyone who could debunk his data allegedly demonstrating election fraud, to pay that amount. The arbitrator determined that software expert Robert Zeidman had successfully refuted Lindell's assertions, according to CNN's initial report on the decision.
As per the arbitrator's ruling, Lindell persistently asserted that he possessed data supposedly gathered during the 2020 election, which supposedly demonstrated China's interference in the election. He made this claim repeatedly during his public appearances and TV appearances.
Following his claims, Lindell initiated the "Prove Mike Wrong Challenge," proposing a $5 million reward to anyone who could demonstrate that the data was not authentic. Zeidman participated in the challenge by submitting a report, which found that the data did not include any data from the 2020 election. Lindell's team disputed Zeidman's victory in the competition, prompting Zeidman to initiate the arbitration.

“Based on the foregoing analysis, Mr. Zeidman performed under the contract,” the ruling said. “He proved the data Lindell LLC provided, and represented reflected information from the November 2020 election, unequivocally did not reflect November 2020 election data. Failure to pay Mr. Zeidman the $5 million prized was a breach of the contract, entitling him to recover.”
According to the arbitrator's decision, the payment of the $5 million must be made within 30 days of the ruling.
Lindell vehemently ripped the arbitration decision.
“It was a horrible decision, and it is all going to end up in court,” he told The Hill while reiterating his desire to completely remove electronic voting machines.
Lindell, who has been an outspoken denier of the election results, launched an unsuccessful bid to become the next leader of the Republican National Committee earlier this year.
