Kansas City’s Fox affiliate reports:
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced Tuesday that his office has filed a lawsuit against Jim Bakker and Morningside Church Productions, Inc. for misrepresentations about the effectiveness of “Silver Solution” as a treatment for the coronavirus COVID-19.
The lawsuit alleges that in a February 12, 2020 Jim Bakker Show production that aired nationwide, Bakker and guest Sherill Sellman, a “naturopathic doctor”, claimed that “Silver Solution” can cure coronavirus.
The broadcast and representations made on Bakker’s website led the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the New York Attorney General’s Office to issue cease and desist letters to the Jim Bakker Show directing Bakker to cease making claims about the product that are not supported by competent and reliable scientific evidence.
Jim Bakker says they sold more silver solution in one day last week than they have in months. Obviously, falsely claiming that it kills the coronavirus turned out to be a pretty lucrative scam. pic.twitter.com/CloQ36h0fO
