ALABAMA: Roy Moore Still Won’t Concede Senate Race Even Though He Has Zero Numerical Chance [VIDEO]

The Associated Press reports:

Republican Roy Moore hasn’t conceded his 20,000-vote loss to Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama’s Senate race, and provisional ballots and military votes still being counted show Moore can’t close the deficit.

Jones beat Moore on Dec. 12 to become the first Democrat elected to the Senate from Alabama in a quarter-century. Moore was beset by allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls decades ago.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill announced Wednesday that a total of 366 military ballots were returned from overseas and 4,967 provisional ballots were cast. That is short of the 20,000-vote deficit that Moore needs to close.

The state must certify the election by January 3rd.

But wait, there’s more:

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill is investigating a concern over potential voter fraud in last Tuesday’s special Senate election.

It all stems from a brief interview FOX10 News Reporter Kati Weis conducted at the Doug Jones victory party on election night when a young man made a comment that has now gone viral on social media. The interview took place just minutes after the race had been called.

While live on air, in the middle of the crowded party, Kati walked up to a number of jubilant supporters at random, asking them for their reactions to the big win. But, it was this question and answer that has caused controversy:

“Kati: Why are you excited to see this victory? Man: Because, we came here all the way from different parts of the country as part of our fellowship, and all of us pitched in to vote and canvas together, and we got our boy elected!”

Last week Roy Moore launched a fundraising drive, allegedly to help him investigate voter fraud. Some, however, believe those donations will roll over into a 2018 run for the US House.

    If it keeps him busy he is less likely to molest children.

  • Rex

    In denial that he lost the election just like he denied even knowing his accusers.
    Seems like a pattern.

  • Ray Page

    81% of Evangelicals voted for admitted sexual predator Trump. 80% of Evangelicals voted for accused sexual predator Moore.

    Let. That. Sink. In.

      We’ve always known who they are so this isn’t all that surprising. Just shows that they have nothing to say to us about morals or values. They can shut up and take several seats with their White Jesus superiority complex.

  • Ben in Oakland

    Roy, dahlin’.
    You said god was in control. Are you once again confused that your name is spelled r-o-y and not g-o-d?

    • Dramphooey

      Like Palin and both are grifters. Maybe his son that keeps getting arrested will beat him up some day.

  • Tawreos

    But guys, Jesus told him he was totally going to be senator.

    • vorpal

      Maybe he, Ted Cruz, and Ben Carson can form a support group.

      • vorpal

        Opal Covey can come too.

        • Tawreos

          Can we just send Opal anywhere even if they don’t form a support group?

          • vorpal

            Only if you’re ready to deal with the resultant pots of gold.

    • GayOldLady

      The voices in his head told him he was going to be Senator. In other countries they have Single Payer Universal Healthcare to treat that condition, in America we have religion.

        In the US we have Single Prayer Sectarian Healthcare.

    • Miji

      Jesus also said he was coming back. Suckers!!!

      • glass

        “coming on your back” I believe is the correct translation from Greek.

    • glass

      I think jesus was actually talking to Jones, but pedo moore was listening at the door, and like most christians moore mistook what jesus said.

    • kaydenpat

      He needs to stop listening to White Jesus.

    • Gregory B

      I get a lot of pleasure knowing God’s “chosen one” has been humiliated at the polls. A Republican was beaten by a Democrat. In Alabama of all places. Karma can be sweet.

  • bkmn

  • Jake GG

    They haven’t had many legislative wins. The more of this news cycle they want to take away from their deficit-expanding tax win for the rich, and focus on such a hateful and harmful failed candidate, I say let them!

    Maybe if we just told him he won, even though he didn’t, he’ll finally go away?

    “we came here all the way from different parts of the country”

    Alabama is one of the “different parts of the country”, so there is NOTHING even suspicious about some of them voting. Those who came from parts of the country outside of Alabama could still canvas.

    • Chucktech

      Besides, their Negro-voting-suppression system voter ID system makes it all but impossible for any fraud to take place.

    Roy Moore has more chance of picking up a 13-year-old at the mall.

    It is good to know that Alabama has an Opal Covey as well. Maybe we can send her from Ohio to Alabama and her and Roy can run for Governor and LT. Governor together.

  • fastlanestranger

    This goes on my “least shocking things in 2017” list.

  • WKT20

    Is there a reason to care if he concedes? Who gives a shit?

    • clay

      It slows the process down a tad. Without a concession, the Sec. of State has to go ahead and count those votes, even knowing it won’t be enough, so they can certify the election.

      • Tomcat

        And experience tells us ANYTHING can happen during recounts.

      • Chucktech

        A lack of a concession from Roy Moore slows down nothing.

  • sdnative1958

    It’s fun to ‘punk’ reporters, especially ones from Fox. *give me a frikkin’ break

    • Chucktech

      Besides, isn’t Alabama voter-id’d out the freaking wazoo?? (You know, to help keep all ’em colored folks from voting?) So, a bus load or two from their “fellowship” stole the election? Please…

  • GayOldLady

    Again, Roy Moore is the basketball team that loses the tournament, then refuses to leave the court. WHO CARES?

  • OhSoGood

    I’m glad he hasn’t conceded… it means I can savor my schadenfreude that much longer.

  • greenmanTN
    • Lumpy Gaga

    IF there was voter fraud, it did not work because Moore still lost.

  • PickyPecker

    Good. Keep your name in the news as long as possible. It will only help the democratic party writ large to defeat the craven Republican party.

    • jruffdc

      Yep.

  • Natty Enquirer

    Moore will never concede. He will drag out the investigations and lawsuits as long as he can and eventually fade into a sour memory.

    • carrot festival

      Or die. Preferably soon.

    Oh so we’ve reach the point of desperation where Republicans pretend not to know what canvassing is. Fuck these clowns.

  • DrRobY

    “Voter fraud would be very unlikely as every voter is required to show a photo ID when casting a vote.” HA! That moment when voter ID laws are used against Republicans.

    • Dramphooey

      They’ve done everything to discourage registration and intimidate voters and we’re supposed to believe a dark skinned guy from wherever waltzed in and voted. Uh huh.

  • gaycuckhubby

    Lol. Assholes.
    Yes, people probably came from all over the country to canvas. That’s their right too.

  • Joe in PA

    I’m waiting for McTurtle to try to use this as an excuse not to seat Jones. Sigh.

    • charemor

      I am sure he will delay as long as possible.

  • Karl Dubhe 2

    Does he actually need to recognize that he lost?

    He’s just a sore loser.

    • Joe in PA

      Supposedly not…but that doesn’t mean they won’t try.

  • Tawreos

    I am surprised he hasn’t pulled out his wife’s gun and tried to force them to call him the winner.

  • Andymac3

    Must be awkward being the big loser at the GOP class reunion

  • Dramphooey

    “Last week Roy Moore launched a fundraising drive, allegedly to help him investigate voter fraud. Some, however, believe those donations will roll over into a 2018 run for the US House.” It was a year ago Jill Stein grifted money from shattered and desperate people. It’s nice to see it being done to scum a year later.

    • prixator

      But, it might turn out to be another House seat pick-up for the Dems in 2018 (though, would Alabamian Repubs be stupid enough to nominate him again? 50/50 eh?).

  • One stray comment by one rando can hold up certification of an election with a statistically significant margin?

    (A) Any Moore supporter could claim to have committed voter fraud for Jones to hold things up.

    (B) It is not illegal for people from out of state to come in and campaign for a particular candidate, drive people to the polls, etc. His comment could easily mean out of staters helped canvass with in staters who voted.

    • DrRobY

      And what if students were coming home to vote?

      • Todd20036

        Or he was being metaphorical? A lot of people from outside did help – either through financial or emotional support, even though only Alabamians actually voted.

        Honestly. The Nazis are so fucking desperate to cheat.

  • Lazycrockett

    Bitter, table for 1.

  • Nate

    That quote means nothing, it was poorly phrased maybe. That is all though.

  • Lots of sound and fury, but a proper investigation would end up highlighting Republican efforts to kick legit voters (in mostly black areas) off the rolls by labeling them “inactive.” I’m guessing the RNC would rather not see those headlines.

    • Tawreos

      They haven’t worried about it in the past, why would they start now?

    • Tread

      We’re talking about a “proper investigation” in Alabama, where the GOP runs the state. Good luck with that.

  • William of Glynn

    Jesus abhors a sore loser.

    • Dramphooey

      But he loves a money making scheme!

  • TexasBoy

    I will never concede,and in the meantime, let’s watch these pretty li’l underage cheerleaders in their skimpy li’l outfits give a cheer for me. Oh, yeah, gilrlies, that’s the way, Just like that. Uh huh.

    Knowing that alt-righters like Mike Cernovich plant people in crowds at these sort of events to stir up trouble (remember the NAMBLA sign?), I doubt they guy in the video is legit. He probably works for Breitbart.

  • BeaverTales

    I know how he feels. Once upon a time I had a paycheck coming, but it fell through because of a crappy CEO who drove his company into bankruptcy before paying his contractors. In my mind, I had already spent the money. This grifter had the senate seat in his mind and all the perks that come with it as well. He’s got bills to pay…big legal ones.

    • Dramphooey

      The fun thing about Roy’s business, though, is that it is next to impossible to bankrupt the company. Jimmy Swaggart was exposed as a fraud but one tearful confession later and the business is still afloat. Roy and his family will continue to draw a paycheck from his rubes, who filed out of the funniest election night party I ever saw streamed and repeated, like automatons, his crap about the military vote. Oh, sometimes they go bankrupt but you just have to collect unemployment until the next start up, just like PTL went under but along come the survival slop buckets.

      • BeaverTales

        The smarter grifters usually have more than one scam going at once. Since the Senate seat fell through, I’m guessing he’ll open up a new and wildly popular Alabama ministry.

      Sadly he’ll win a house race

      • TominDC

        IMO that’s really not a bad thing.

        Any district that’d vote for him wouldn’t elect anyone who is remotely progressive. And when they’re stuck with Moore, it’d make the republican party just a little more offensive to independents and those who’re on the verge of leaving the party.

  • josephsinger

    Roy Moore has psychological problems. He needs treatment.

  • pch1013

    As I said last week – he’s going to go to Washington and make a “last stand” on the Capitol steps; the video of him being dragged away by Capitol police as he tries to take “his” seat in the Senate will be worth millions in additional donations from enraged little old white ladies.

  • shellback

    I know it’s December, but I never thought Alabama had such big snowflakes…

  • Snarky

    Of COURSE Moore isn’t going to concede. Remember, he’s from the South, where pickup trucks have bumper stickers that feature a cartoon Confederate soldier with the phrase “Forget, hell!” Where Confederate statues were erected as part of the “Lost Cause” movement. Generations of these people have been marinating in resentment over losing a war more than 150 years ago. Their side signed an unconditional surrender, and they don’t recognize it.

    Pair that sentiment with what Moore doubtlessly thought was his divinely-given right to that Senate seat and of course he wouldn’t recognize losing this election.

      He doesn’t have to concede. Once the vote is officially certified and, given the fact the he apparently has no legal standing for an official recount, it will be official and Jones goes to the Senate.
