Shasta County politician backed by Mike Lindell may be in trouble
May 13, 2023
Shasta County is moving forward with an extremely expensive plan to hand count all ballots in future elections. The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to authorize the hiring of seven new county employees who will help facilitate the switch from machine counting to hand counting, in what amounts to the latest chapter in the county’s election conspiracy journey.
The Tuesday meeting featured a little extra drama as District 1 Supervisor Kevin Crye — an ally of MyPillow CEO and 2020 presidential election conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell — got served papers announcing a citizens’ attempt to recall him while he was seated on the dais.
