Accused child molester Roy Moore, who unequivocally lost the Alabama Senate election to Doug Jones earlier this month, is living in an alternate reality. For Moore, the fact that he's the first Republican to lose a Senate election in the notoriously red state in 25 long years couldn't possibly be related to the fact that he's a 10 Commandments-obsessed alleged child molester. Instead, Moore claimed in a preposterous filing Wednesday, the loss is due to "systematic voter fraud."
Moore is now suing to block certification of the election results, the New York Times reported Thursday. Moore's team filed a complaint claiming that Moore will endure "irreparable harm" if denied what he claims is his "full right" to a "fair election." Thankfully, Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill—and anyone else with a brain—isn't buying any of this.
"It is not going to delay certification, and Doug Jones will be certified (Thursday) at 1 p.m., and he will be sworn in by Vice President Pence on the third of January," Merrill said Wednesday night, according to AL.com.
Moore vs. Jones inspired national attention, a rarity for Alabama politics, when the Washington Post published a piece alleging that Moore had initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32. The story was widely covered, ultimately resulting in extended segments on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in which Moore was rightfully blasted. At one point during their exchange of tweets, Moore told Kimmel to come down to Alabama (writer's note: why would anyone ever do such a thing?) and settle things "man to man."
Sorry, Roy. There's no room for you in 2018.
