Disgraced Alabama senate candidate and twice removed state supreme court justice Roy Moore is still refusing to concede the race and Republican pundit Ana Navarro is having none of it.
Hours before the results are due to be certified, the candidate has filed paperwork alleging voter fraud – because too many black people voted against him.
Even better, the “expert” Moore cites in his appeal is a notorious conspiracy theorist who also claims to have “mathematically” proven that John F. Kennedy was assassinated as part of a giant conspiracy.
Moore, who was plagued by allegations of child molestation, sexual assault and harassment of teenage girls, is the first Republican to lose a Senate race in the state in 25 years. Moore lost by almost 22,000 votes.
Moore’s complaint claims “anomalous” higher voter turnout in a county were 43% of the population is black, saying the county’s 47% voter turnout is “highly unusual.”
Moore, who infamously told supporters that he would abolish the constitutional amendment against slavery and that the last time America was “great” was before the Civil War, can’t fathom why African-Americans would turn out in large numbers to vote against him.
The last minute appeal is likely to have little effect on the election results.
“It is not going to delay certification and Doug Jones will be certified at 1 p.m. and he will be sworn in by Vice President Pence on the third of January,” Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said.
Only one thing to say to Roy Moore….Hit the road, Roy. And don’t you come back No Moore. No Moore. Hit the road, Roy, and don’t you come back No Moore.
Boy, bye. https://t.co/xaGou7aULa
