Roy Moore's request to halt elect certification denied by judge

Roy Moore

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said Jones will be certified as the victor of the December 12 election on Thursday afternoon.

Roy Moore filed an election complaint on Wednesday, alleging potential voter fraud in Alabama's special election and urged a delay in certifying the results.

"I am looking forward to going to work for the people of Alabama in the new year". "I will be an independent voice and work to find common ground with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get Washington back on track and fight to make our country a better place for all".

During an interview with CNN, Merrill, who voted for Moore, outlined some of the voter fraud claims his office has had to deal with in the weeks that followed Jones's surprise victory and Moore's refusal to concede the race.

Mr Jones defeated Mr Moore by about 20,000 votes. The seat was previously held by Republican Jeff Sessions, who was tapped by U.S. President Donald Trump as attorney general.

Prominent conservatives who allege voter fraud is more prevalent than evidence now suggests declined to add their voice to Moore's complaint.

Moore, the first Republican to lose a United States Senate race in Alabama in 25 years, moved late Wednesday to block state officials from certifying the victory of his Democratic rival on Thursday afternoon because of "systematic voter fraud".

(Washington Examiner) - Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore says he passed a polygraph test proving the "representations of misconduct" made against him during his unsuccessful campaign are false.

The success of Congress was largely credited to the extensive campaigning conducted by party President Rahul Gandhi. However, Kakadiya's age - he is 73 years old - seems to have gone against him.

The certification was complete at 1:10 p.m. Thursday.

Moore's campaign was deeply wounded by the sexual misconduct accusations. The complaint cites conspiracy theorist Richard Charnin as an election expert who said that the chances of the unofficial election results being accurate were "less than one in 15 billion".

Along with his lawsuit, Moore also submitted an affidavit claiming that he took a polygraph test "within days" of the special election. He attached a statement from a poll worker that she had noticed licenses from Georgia and North Carolina as people signed in to vote.

The number has been raised to 118 voter fraud complaints, with 85 so far having been adjudicated, Merrill said. He said Moore's complaint seemed to boil down to the belief that he should have won based on exit polling and that the high turnout, including by African-American voters, must indicate fraud.

Trump to sign tax bill before leaving for holiday
Trump held an event with lawmakers on Wednesday to celebrate passage of the tax bill. Asked whether he has any regrets over his first 11 months, he shook his head no.

Hasen said Moore's complaint might just be a way for him to fundraise and throw "red meat to his loyal supporters".
