Alabama Certified Doug Jones As The Winner Of Its Special Election

Roy Moore Asks Alabama Court to Block Election's Certification

Minutes before the Alabama election canvassing board met to certify the result, a circuit judge in Montgomery County denied Republican Roy Moore's last-ditch request for a temporary restraining order to prevent certifying Jones as victor. "I will be an independent voice and work to find common ground with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle", he added.

Mr Moore's lawyer said the goal of the complaint was to "preserve evidence of potential election fraud and to postpone the certification of Alabama's Special Election by Secretary of State John Merrill until a thorough investigation of potential election fraud, that improperly altered the outcome of this election". A judge denied his request to stop the election certification.

In a complaint filed in the circuit court here in Alabama's capital, Mr. Moore's campaign argued that such fraud had tainted the December 12 special election, which Mr. Moore lost to Doug Jones by fewer than 22,000 votes, and that the Alabama authorities had inadequately investigated claims of misconduct.

Democrat Doug Jones has said his US Senate election victory in Alabama over controversial Republican Roy Moore marks a "new chapter for our state and the nation".

Democrat Doug Jones was formally declared the victor of the bitterly contested US Senate race in the southern state of Alabama on Thursday, whittling down the Republican majority in the chamber by a crucial seat.

Moore appeared to be the favorite in the contest to fill the Senate seat held by Jeff Sessions, who is now Trump's attorney general.

With messages of peace Christmas celebrated across Kashmir
He said much more than festivity and celebration, the spirit of Christmas was to share, to reach out, and to love all humanity. We hope that British Columbians throughout the province have a safe and joyful Christmas season.

To back up the claims, Moore's team cited mathematician Richard Charnin, a conspiracy theorist who also asserts the 2004 presidential election and 2016 Democratic presidential primary were rigged. "Doug Jones will be certified at 1 p.m. this afternoon", Merrill told TIME before the certification took place.

During an interview with CNN, Merrill, who voted for Moore, outlined some of the voter fraud claims his office has had to deal with in the weeks that followed Jones's surprise victory and Moore's refusal to concede the race.

Roy Moore, already controversial for his comments about groups like Muslims and LGBT individuals, lost the Alabama special election after nine women came forward accusing him of sexual misconduct.

"I have stood for the truth about God and the Constitution for the people of Alabama", he said. The complaint also noted the higher-than-expected turnout in the race, particularly in Jefferson County. Moore denied the accusations and said in the lawsuit that he had passed a polygraph test to prove they are false.
