Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill (R) is setting the record straight about MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's recent voter fraud conspiracy claims.

According to AL.com, Lindell, who has been a diehard supporter of former President Donald Trump's claims of widespread voter fraud, recently claimed the state of Alabama had over 100,000 votes "flipped" in President Joe Biden's favor. Lindell reportedly made the claims on his recent tour. The deranged CEO has visited multiple states to "prove the election was stolen from Trump via computer manipulation," the publication reports.

"This was the one time we're going to have to do a little bit of a deeper dive here. On the surface you can't see where it happened," Lindsell said. "What I guarantee they've had to do in Alabama is the bad people…went deeper into the well. Very deep into the well of how they did the flips."

When Lindell made a stop in Alabama on Sunday, September 19, he claimed the state was a "role model as to how elections should go," its voting systems was "hacked…just like every other state." Lindell reportedly suspects the voting system may have been compromised by way of Bluetooth technology. However, Merrill argues otherwise.

Speaking to AL.com, Merrill explained how Alabama's voting systems are designed as he confirmed there is no way for those systems to be manipulated or compromised.

"All our (voting) machines are custom-built. There's no modem component. You can't influence them through a cell phone or a landline. There's no way they can be probed or numbers manipulated," the Republican official told the publication.

Merrill also confirmed Lindell purchased his own copy of the state's voter roll which is available to the public. According to Merrill, if anyone reviews that voter roll and determines that there is some form of manipulation, their assessment is incorrect.

"We didn't have any vote changes. Zero," Merrill emphasized. "It's not possible to have any vote changed."
