Roy Moore loses again: Democrat Doug Jones officially declared winner of Alabama Senate election after judge turned down voter fraud claims


Recommended Posts


Alabama election officials declared Democrat Doug Jones the winner of a special Senate election held earlier this month.

A judge had rejected Roy Moore's attempt to stop the state from making his defeat final. The state's canvassing board met and signed the papers shortly after 1:00 p.m. local time.

Montgomery Circuit Judge Johnny Hardwick on Thursday denied Moore's attempt to delay the certification of votes while Moore's claims of voter fraud are investigated.

Hardwick said he lacked jurisdiction to decide the case – meaning that Moore, a former state Supreme Court chief justice, may have filed the lawsuit in the wrong court. 

Moore had sued late Wednesday night in an 11th-hour attempt to stop Alabama from certifying Jones as the winner.

Moore lost a U.S. Senate race in a shocker after being accused of child molestation and other forms of sexual misconduct. He sued 14 hours ahead of Thursday's final chapter. 

Jones defeated Moore by about 21,000 votes.
