Alabama Senate: Democrat Doug Jones officially declared victor

Alabama Senate: Democrat Doug Jones officially declared victor

"Election fraud experts across the country have agreed that this was a fraudulent election", Moore said in a statement after the results were certified. The lawsuit was dismissed minutes before the vote was certified. Moore was a twice removed from the position of chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. The Republican National Committee originally withdrew its formal support of Moore, but reversed the decision after President Donald Trump officially endorsed him.

Jones defeated Moore on December 12 by 21,924 votes in a stunning victory in a traditionally red state, becoming the first Alabama Democrat elected to the Senate victory in a quarter-century.

His complaint alleges that out-of-state residents had been allowed to vote and that election fraud experts had concluded through statistical analyses that fraud had taken place. Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said his office has so far found no evidence of fraud. The lawsuit requested that the state launch a fraud investigation and hold a new election. "If they've been objective and they have looked at this, then they know what has occurred is legitimate". Merrill said Moore's campaign had not informed his office of specific allegations to investigate.

Moore's attorney wrote in the wide-ranging complaint that he believed there were irregularities during the election, including that voters may have been brought in from other states. A poll worker submitted a sworn affidavit saying she had never seen so many people vote with out-of-state driver's licenses.

They also said, "Bomb threats are more fun and cooler than swats in my opinion and I should have just stuck to that". She said her granddaughter was forced to step over her dying uncle and that no guns were found in the home.

Merrill also said he was able to identify a young man who appeared on local TV on election night - and seemed to suggest people had come from other states to vote for Jones. One of them, Richard Charnin, argued in a recent book that President Trump won the "true" vote in the 2016 presidential election (Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by almost 3 million votes) and that "historical statistical evidence is conclusive: every election is fraudulent".

He mentioned some of the claims, including one that five busloads of black voters from MS came into the state to vote, which he said was proven false after an investigation.

The suit was filed in Montgomery Circuit Court. And he was permanently suspended previous year for urging probate judges to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples in defiance of federal court rulings. The action leaves Moore with nearly no avenues to derail Mr. Jones's ascension to the Senate.

"Whether you're a Republican or whether you're a Democrat; whether you like Roy Moore or whether you like Doug Jones, you ought to care about the fact that the people of Alabama should be making that choice", Porter said. He still has not conceded his losses in the 2006 or 2010 Republican primaries for governor.
