While many have already closed the door on the contentious special election in Alabama that took place earlier this month, Judge Roy Moore is not giving up.
The consummate fighter, Judge Moore refuses to admit defeat. Due to possible voter irregularities and other mischief related to the result of this brutal election, he just may have a point.
Moore has launched his “Election Integrity Program” to make sure that all “reports of potential voter fraud and various other irregularities” that are “streaming in from all across the state” are properly investigated. He claims that “campaign staff and volunteers are chasing down and investigating each and every report the moment they’re received” but this “slow and laborious process” will take a great deal of time and resources.
Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones, reported astronomically high voter totals in urban and black areas throughout Alabama. In certain areas, Jones received more votes than Barack Hussein Obama did in 2012. This was largely attributed to a get out the vote effort from former basketball player Charles Barkley, but shocking circumstances occurring the day of the election cast severe doubt over this story.
In a bizarre final-hour court hearing, the Alabama supreme court ruled that digital voting records could be destroyed, reversing a lower court ruling issued earlier int he day. Although the paper ballots are still apparently intact for a recount, this ruling could impact Judge Moore’s efforts at transparency.
Priscilla Duncan, a lawyer representing the four plantiffs who sued in an attempt to keep the electronic voting records intact, said, “These machines are hack-able … That’s what worried us.”
Hacked machines or not, Judge Moore continues his fight. He believes that electoral integrity throughout America is at stake, and refuses to believe that the good people of Alabama elected a baby-killing federal attorney over himself to represent the Heart of Dixie.
“The integrity of this election — and future elections — is hanging in the balance,” Judge Moore said in an e-mail outreach to his supporters. “I must be able to count on your support to help ensure no stone is left unturned.”
Judge Moore hopes to raise a total of $75,000 by Dec. 27 at Midnight. He has already raised $72,630 of that total. The link to donate to Judge Moore’s Electoral Integrity Fund can be found here.
