MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was denied entry Tuesday to events hosted by the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) Conference in Tennessee, according to Politico.
Just minutes after receiving his credential for the spring conference held in Nashville, Tennessee, an RGA event coordinator told Lindell he was barred from attending any of the events, Politico reported Wednesday.
“These events are for RGA members, and Mike Lindell is not currently an RGA member,” a spokesperson for the RGA told Politico.
Lindell shared several screenshots of documents from the RGA, including a calendar event called “RGA — Nashville Meeting,” with a PDF attachment titled “Nashville Agenda.pdf,” as well as his “executive roundtable” badge, Politico reported.
Mike Lindell appeared on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast earlier Tuesday, explaining his plan to confront Republican Govs. Brian Kemp of Georgia and Doug Ducey of Arizona “one-on-one” regarding the allegations of election fraud during the 2020 presidential election.

Lindell previously attended the RGA winter 2020 meeting, after having been floated as a potential candidate for Minnesota governor by former President Donald Trump, according to Politico.
“You should run,” Trump told Lindell at a September rally in Minnesota. “He has my complete and total endorsement.”
Lindell said he had flown to Nashville on Monday to attend the 3-day meeting, but that only a few minutes after he collected his credential an event coordinator in the lobby told him he was not allowed at any of the official RGA events https://t.co/zflDWvohlS

Dominion accused Lindell of promulgating election fraud claims to sell more pillows. “Dominion brings this action to vindicate the company’s rights, to recover damages, to seek a narrowly tailored injunction, to stand up for itself and its employees, and to stop Lindell and MyPillow from further profiting at Dominion’s expense.”
Mike Lindell was also banned from Twitter in January, due to “repeated violations” of the social media platform’s “Civic Integrity Policy.”
