So what happens when the governor of a state goes out of town to a conference or to some of the dullest seminars in the world? Well, the state of Idaho is not only known for its potatoes. They have quite a few nuts up there, too. This is what just happened.
Idaho’s Chief Deputy Secretary of State Chad Houck joined CNN’s John Berman to chime in on the not-so-secret war between Idaho Governor Brad Little and Lieutenant Governor Janice McGeachin. You see, when Little went down to the U.S.’s southern border, McGeachin jumped into the governor’s big shoes.
They did not fit very well, but she strutted around his office in a prelude to what a win against him would feel like. Apparently, it felt pretty good. An Idaho law let her do that. But this was not the only trouble brewing in the gem state.
Berman began talking about MyPillow guy Mike Lindell. He was the one who kept conspiracy theories about the state’s presidential race results circling his and the former president’s heads like an amazing hula-hoop act — on fire. This conspiracy theory claimed that the 2020 results had been electronically hacked.
The Chief Deputy Secretary of State announced that Idaho was going to charge Mike Lindell for the ridiculous 2020 election audit that My Pillow guy instigated in a number of the state’s counties. His fraudulent claims were the basis for an audit, even though Donald Trump won the state. Houck said that Idaho investigated Lindell’s claims.
As a result, he found “there’s absolutely no validity to them” (the conspiracy theories). The Newsweek Magazine reported that Berman said:
‘You are chasing your tail because of the MyPillow guy. Should he pay for this at least?’
Houk said they would be billing him:
‘Well, actually we will be totaling up the expenses that were incurred in the process and we will be sending him a bill.’
Then, Berman pondered whether Lindell would even pay the bill, because he appeared to live in an alternate world. And who knows whether they even had money in that reality?
But more importantly, why did Idaho even link up with him given his many, many conspiracy theories? The best way to nail Trump’s thinking is to listen to who he is knee-capping at night. These conspiracy theories have darkened the horizon and have not left it free from corruption.
