Alabama Voter Fraud? Doug Jones Supporter: “We Came from Different Parts of the Country”
Claims of vote fraud in Alabama are swirling after a man was caught on camera appearing to reveal that supporters of Democrat Doug Jones “came from different parts of the country” to vote for him.
The clip was captured by Fox10 News after it was confirmed that Jones had defeated Republican Roy Moore.
Asked, “Why are you excited to see this victory?” the man responds, “Because we came here all the way from different parts of the country as part of our fellowship and all of us pitched in to vote and canvas together and we got our boy elected!”
It’s unclear whether the individual is referring to people being transported in to campaign for Jones or to actually vote for him, which would be illegal.
“Even the girl next to him knows that he has let the cat out of the bag,” commented one Twitter user.
The clip is going viral, with one version having racked up almost 300,000 views on Facebook.
Roy Moore is continuing to refuse to concede the election, commenting, “In this race, we have not received the final count to include military and provisional ballots. This has been a very close race and we are awaiting certification by the secretary of state.”
If Moore reduces Jones’ 1.5 percentage advantage to within 0.5% after the military ballots have been counted, this will trigger an automatic recount which will be paid for by the state government.
