JUST IN: Roy Moore’s Not Done Yet!

By

Has Judge Roy Moore gone a bit overboard in his efforts to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in Alabama’s recent Senate special election?

It certainly is seeming that way.

At the same time, Moore is probably right in his warning to Alabama state officials that they were digging their own political graves by certifying Democrat Doug Jones’ victory without doing a recount.

Just before Gov. Kay Ivey and Secretary of State John Merrill met to certify Jones’ win, Moore’s campaign spokeswoman, Janet Porter, told CNN:

“Here’s the thing that Gov. Ivey needs to know: She’s up for reelection too and there are 650,000 people who are watching this very closely, what they do right now. 

“If they certify what has been proven by three independent experts that say this is fraudulent enough to overturn this entire election, they are going to be accountable at the voting booth.”

Ivey and Merrill brushed off Moore’s threat and certified Jones.

Moore came off looking desperate, but his warning is likely to prove accurate, given that Alabama is a deeply red state.
