Roy Moore fundraising for ‘election integrity fund’ ahead of election certification


Roy Moore’s campaign announced Friday that it is seeking donations for an “election integrity fund” following the former judge’s unsuccessful bid for an Alabama Senate seat.

Moore has refused to concede the race, which went to his Democratic opponent Doug Jones with 49.9 percent of the vote compared to Moore’s 48.4 percent. 

The campaign is seeking to meet a deadline to report cases of voter fraud before Alabama’s secretary of State certifies the vote. The election will be certified between Dec. 26 and Jan. 3.


In a letter sent out to supporters, the campaign said its budget “ran through” on Tuesday, the night of the Alabama special election, and asked supporters to help raise another $75,000 to collect reports of “voter fraud and other irregularities at polling locations throughout the state.” 

“My campaign team is busy collecting numerous reported cases of voter fraud and irregularities for the Secretary of State’s office,” the statement said. 

All 100 percent of precincts in the state reported results by Wednesday morning, but Moore told supporters in an email “military and provisional ballots haven’t yet been counted by the Secretary of State’s office,” the results of which the campaign hopes will swing the vote in Moore’s favor.

Moore, who faced multiple allegations of past sexual misconduct during the campaign, lost a seat that has gone Republican for the past 25 years.

President Trump, who supported the Alabama conservative in the general race, has called for Moore to concede.
