A-G Eric Schmitt


The state of Missouri is suing televangelist Jim Bakker. Attorney General Eric Schmitt has filed for a restraining order preventing Bakker from selling a product that he has implied can cure the deadly strain of coronavirus sweeping the globe. Several other states have also taken action over the show segment. New York’s Attorney General sent a cease-and-desist letter. The product in question is called “Silver Solution” and authorities say it has no known impact on the virus. Schmitt says Bakker violated the state’s Merchandising Practices Act by falsely promising consumers that the solution can cure, eliminate, kill, or deactivate the virus and boost immune systems in elderly customers.
