Roy Moore's request to halt elect certification denied by judge

Roy Moore's request to halt elect certification denied by judge Roy Moore's request to halt elect certification denied by judge

"He will be sworn in by Vice President Pence on the 3rd of January when the Senate returns".

Alabama election officials already said Thursday that Jones would be certified the victor of the election, despite Moore's lawsuit. As I said on election night, our victory marks a new chapter for our state and the nation.

Former GOP candidate Roy Moore filed an election complaint late Wednesday evening to contest the outcome of Alabama's Senate race.

"I am looking forward to going to work for the people of Alabama in the new year", Jones, the first Democrat sent to the Senate from Alabama in a quarter-century, said in a statement shortly after the certification.

An Alabama district court on Thursday rejected the Moore campaign's challenge. Moore, a Republican, is an anti-LGBT, religious right extremist who was twice removed as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court - the first time for refusing to take down a Ten Commandments monument from the state courthouse, the second time for trying to block marriage equality in the state.

"This is not a Republican or Democrat issue as election integrity should matter to everyone", Mr Moore said in a statement.

Moore's lawyer claimed that increased turnout in heavily black and Democratic areas, and lower turnout in rural and more Republican areas, was proof of rampant fraud in the December 12 special election.

The Moore campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TIME.

Gloria Allred, an attorney representing Beverly Nelson Young, who had alleged Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager, said Moore's attempts to discredit the victims would not work.

The complaint also contained an affidavit from Moore "stating that he successfully completed a polygraph test confirming the representations of misconduct made against him during the campaign are completely false".

Merrill, who has implemented several Republican-led initiatives to prevent voter fraud including voter ID requirements, has repeatedly said his office has found no evidence of voter fraud.

Moore's complaint cites four so-called experts on why there should be a new election, but some of them come with "baggage", the Post reports.

"I have stood for the truth about God and the Constitution for the people of Alabama", the conservative Christian said. "I have no regrets". In the complaint, Moore's lawyer said they believed there were irregularities in 20 precincts in Jefferson County, where Jones captured a large margin of victory. Moore, 651,972, 48.3 percent and write-ins, 22,852, or 1.7 percent.
