Roy Moore Just Doubled Down On Refusing To Concede, With An Even More Absurd Excuse

By Collin Gossel

On Tuesday, December 12, Republican Roy Moore lost the special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Session's vacant Senate seat. Senator-elect Doug Jones is the first Democrat Alabama has elected since the early 1990s, in part due to myriad controversies surrounding Moore. Judge Moore has been twice removed from the bench as a result of his defiance of federal rulings. Just last year, he was ousted after ordering probate judges to ignore the Supreme Court's decision on same-sex marriage and  refuse marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

In a move anyone familiar with Moore's history will find unsurprising, the former candidate is refusing to concede the election to Jones, claiming he is waiting for every ballot to be counted. 

Moore is now suggesting voter fraud may have played a role in his loss.
