Roy Moore Needs Your $$$ To Track Down The One-Armed Black Women Who Stole His Election!
A Quinn-Martin Projection
Failed Alabama candidate for US Senate Roy Moore has still not conceded that he lost last week's special election to Democrat Doug Jones, and now Moore is begging for money to launch an "Election Integrity Program" that his campaign claims will investigate all the "potential voter fraud and various other irregularities" that supposedly kept Moore from winning, as God had ordained. Birmingham TV reporter Lauren Walsh captured this fund-raising email sent Monday by the Moore campaign:
What "irregularities" and fraudulent votes is Moore talking about? Shhh, that's secret, but there had to be a lot of it for Moore to lose by a margin of about 20,000 votes.
Chris Davis, of Huntsville CBS affiliate WHNT, tweeted Monday that Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill hadn't actually had any reports of voter fraud forwarded to his office by the Moore campaign.
Obviously, Merrill -- a Republican -- must be covering up for all the frauders that illegally voted for Doug Jones, as one troll replied to the tweet by Davis: "What about the 35,000 black women they bused in from Arkansas to vote for Doug Jones?" And you bet there are fake news stories going around -- created at sites that proudly announce "Everything on this site is fiction" -- about various nefarious schemes that never happened at all. As for any actual fraud, Merrill said again on Tuesday that he still hadn't received any credible reports, telling a radio show connected with conservative Alabama news site Yellowhammer News,
I think our local election officials did an outstanding job at the local level ensuring that when voters came to the polls that they were allowed to vote and just one time, that their voice was heard as their votes were confirmed and documented.
This is, by the way, the same John Merrill who insisted that making voting easier would be a bad thing that would dishonor Martin Luther King, who knew voting ought to be very, very difficult. So we are reasonably certain that if he's denying there's any voting fraud, it's because he's already fully aware that Alabama did its level best to keep people from voting, and resents any suggestion it might be easy.
Merrill's office did, however, open an investigation after a TV report captured one excited (and as yet unidentified) guy at the Doug Jones victory party being inarticulate with intent to defraud the voters of Alabama. The clip has gotten a whole lot of idiot InfoWars types very het up:
