Eight days after Doug Jones was voted Alabama’s new senator-elect, his opponent Roy Moore has yet to concede defeat.
Last week, Moore released a video statement blasting homosexuality and warning of impending judgment from God.
On Monday, Moore’s campaign sent an email to supporters seeking funds for an “Election Integrity Program” that would look into alleged “reports of potential voter fraud.”
“The integrity of this election ― and future elections ― is hanging in the balance,” the email read.

Moore’s followers flooded the post with homophobic comments attacking Jones’s son.
“Shame they slander a great Alabamian Judge Moore and then the sick left winner shows its perversion,” wrote one Facebook user.
“Obviously Jone’s (sic) was an absent father for his son to be a homosexual, if the election continues as is he won’t be much of a Senator either,” wrote another.
Moore has also shared articles from the conspiracy theory website World Net Daily that alleges “a coalition of Muslim and Marxist-led groups” were instrumental in defeating Moore’s Senate candidacy.
“The real lesson is that the left is pouring big resources into registering hundreds of thousands of black and Latino voters in Southern states – especially North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Texas and Arizona,” the article states. “They have already flipped Colorado and Virginia; if they can push over two or three more Southern dominoes, the Republicans will be in deep trouble.”
