Missouri AG sues Jim Bakker Show over alleged ‘cure'


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A spokesperson with the Missouri Attorney General’s Office told the News-Leader on Tuesday morning that the office was filing suit against the Jim Bakker Show operation near Branson, Mo.

Spokesman Chris Nuelle said in an email that the goal of the suit was “to stop (Bakker) from selling that coronavirus ‘cure,’” a product known as “silver solution” that was priced at $80 or more on Bakker’s show.

Documents were filed Monday in Stone County, Nuelle said, with televangelist Jim Bakker and his Morningside Church Productions, Inc. named as defendants. 

“Anyone who has bought ‘Silver Solution” from the Jim Bakker Show should know that it cannot cure or treat coronavirus,” Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s office said in a news release, which referred to the product as a “fake.”

The suit asserts that Bakker and Morningside are in violation of the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act. It asks for a restraining order and a permanent injunction ordering Bakker to stop selling “silver sol” as a treatment for the coronavirus, dubbed COVID-19, that emerged late last year in China before infecting at least 113,000 people worldwide, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University.
