Alabama Secretary of State Launches Voter Fraud Investigation in Senate Special Election

Decision came after an interview with a man who said “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.”

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill has decided to launch an investigation into possible voter fraud in last week’s Senate special election that say Democrat Doug Jones defeat Republican Roy Moore.

The decision came after an interview with a person on FOX10:

While live on air, in the middle of the crowded party, Kati walked up to a number of jubilant supporters at random, asking them for their reactions to the big win.

But, it was this question and answer that has caused controversy:

“Kati: Why are you excited to see this victory? Man: 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!”

Merrill said he is trying to find out who the man is, and if he really meant what he said, or if he only misspoke.

“Well, it’s very disconcerting when someone who’s not from Alabama says that they participated in our election, so now it’s incumbent upon us to try to identify this young man, to see what kind of role he played, if it was to simply play a canvassing roll, or if he was part of a process that went out and tried to register voters, or if he himself actually became a registered voter,” said Merrill.

Merrill said, so far, there is no concrete evidence that any voter fraud has taken place.

“We don’t have any evidence of people doing that, our numbers do not indicate that has happened, but when you have someone actually recorded on television saying that they voted, and that’s what he said, then we’ve got to get to the bottom of that,” said Merrill.

The Secretary of State’s Office also said voter fraud would be unlikely because every voter is required to show a government photo identification card before casting a vote.

“We have one of the most stringent voting laws in the nation,” said Merrill.

FOX10 News has also been trying to find out who the man in question is, even reaching out to the Doug Jones campaign for a list of volunteers, but the Jones campaign said it does not have access to the countless groups who volunteered to help canvas and campaign.

Merrill said the Jones campaign has been cooperative with his investigation.

As in the Franken election, two years from now it will be proven that Jones won by fraud, but nothing will happen. He’ll still be the Senator from AL. They dems know they can get away with this so why stop?

    The Democrats have elevated voter fraud to an art form, yet their allies in the media claim it doesn’t exist.

        Democrats can’t win without massive “Election Fraud.”

        Normal, simple math proves the “vote counts” are impossible – and therefor VOTER FRAUD!!!!!!!!!!!!

They described on video how they had done this in the past, and they actually flipped NH in 2016. No one said boo.

“We have one of the most stringent voting laws in the nation,” said Merrill.

We’re about to find out.

    Voter ID laws only work when voters are actually required to show actual valid IDs.

    It won’t work if people without IDs are allowed to vote anyway.

    The precincts that recorded enough votes to “elect” Jones were in heavily Democrat areas.

    Somehow I’m not very confident that people who voted in those precincts were actually required to show valid ID.

Remember Rs always have to beat the margin of fraud, every time.

I read a book years ago by Hugh Hewitt titled “If it’s not close, they can’t win.” Dems cheat in elections. It’s what they do. Republicans have to do a better at persuading new voters and getting all their voters to the polls. Remember, we have to counteract all those felons, dead people, illegal aliens and double voters (especially those fraud-loving college students).

    Yet, Hugh Hewitt, currently with MSNBC, is always one of the first to roll-over and play dead. Being a professional faux conservative has always been good for Hewitt’s wallet.

He said “as part of our fellowship.” What does he mean by “fellowship”? Was this a church sponsored thing?

Wait a minute. Alabama has a tough voter ID law? But the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals said it’s racist and unconstitutional for North Carolina to ask for ID.

I pray at least one state will make the federal form required to purchase a firearm their voter registration form and then have a federal court rule on the constitutionality. Firearms are an enumerated right, so anything required for that purpose should be good to vet voters. Do you use illegal drugs? Are you a convicted felon? Do you reside at this address? And many more, under penalty of perjury. Plus a photo ID.

Until some people caught in voter fraud start serving some serious prison time, nothing will change.

Roll Tide?

Did the Secretary of state certify the election? He should wait until the fraud is proven.

This should be one of the banner stories.
