LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas' attorney general has sued Missouri-based TV pastor Jim Bakker over his promotion of a product falsely touted as a cure for the illness caused by the coronavirus. Attorney General Leslie Rutledge filed the lawsuit in Arkansas against Bakker and Morningside Church Productions. It comes three months after the state of Missouri filed a similar lawsuit. The lawsuit says 385 Arkansans purchased approximately $60,524 worth of colloidal silver, a product often sold on the internet as a dietary supplement. The liquid solution has often been falsely peddled as a miracle solution to boost the immune system and cure diseases.
