Republican Missouri AG Sues Pro-Trump Pastor For Selling Fake Coronavirus ‘Cure’

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt (R) filed a lawsuit against televangelist Jim Bakker for falsely claiming that his “Silver Solution” will “cure” the novel coronavirus.

The lawsuit, which names Bakker and his Morningside Church Productions as defendants, says Bakker and “naturopathic doctor” Sherrill Sellman falsely claimed the solution could cure the virus in a Feb. 12 episode of “The Jim Bakker Show.”

Bakker was forced to stop selling his “Silver Solution” product by both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and New York Attorney General Letitia James’s (D).

“The 2019 novel coronavirus poses serious consequences to public health, and consumers are concerned as to how they can best protect themselves and their families,” James said in the letter. “Your show’s segment may mislead consumers as to the effectiveness of the Silver Solution product in protecting against the current outbreak.”

The Missouri suit requests a restraining order and permanent injunction against Bakker selling the solution as a coronavirus treatment, according to Schmitt’s office.
