This may be a good sign. Roy Moore is apparently losing it and invoking every liberal bogeyman available in the last few days before the election in Alabama Tuesday, blaming a potential loss on the spectre that he alone is now raising of “election theft” and further blaming everyone and everything from George Soros to kneeling NFL players for the fact that he is running neck and neck with Democrat Doug Jones in some polls and running behind in others. Politico:
On Tuesday, the Moore campaign raised fears of widespread voter fraud in the state. It sent a letter to Alabama’s Republican Secretary of State noting that some absentee ballots in Bullock County, in the state’s black belt, had been marked for Jones before being sent out. Bill Armistead, the Moore campaign chairman, said he was “disturbed” and wanted reassurances the incident was “not part of a broader plot to steal this election.”
Secretary of State John Merrill, a Republican, said he warned county election officials to make sure the issue wasn’t widespread.
Two days later, Moore campaign officials accused Highway 31 of “election theft” at a press conference in Montgomery. They argued that a digital ad from the group warning voters that their vote was public and “your community will know whether or not you helped stop Roy Moore” was misleading since voters’ ballot selections remain private. Merrill asked Google to take down the ads, which were running in front of YouTube videos.
The RNC turned the tap back on last week and spent $170,000 on a mailer for Moore, and not just any mailer.
The first bullet point on the mailer? Jones “publicly supports players kneeling to protest the National Anthem.” (The players are protesting police violence against African-Americans, not the anthem.)
Meanwhile, at his rally with Bannon on Tuesday, Moore claimed “Soros’ army” was in the state trying to register voters, referring to the Hungarian-born financier and progressive donor who is frequently invoked by conservatives. The claims relate to work by progressive groups to register felons to vote after their rights were restored earlier this year, thanks to a law sponsored and signed by Republicans in Alabama.
“No matter how much money he’s got, he’s still going to the same place that people who don’t recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going,” Moore said of Soros in an interview on American Family Radio earlier this week. “And that’s not a good place.”
Well, there you have it, the paranoid, conspiracy theory driven world view of Roy Moore, replete with visions of George Soros strewing the streets of Alabama with his ill gotten gains, Doug Jones plotting with the NFL and against the anthem, (Mom, apple pie and flag soon to follow) and a deep deep state infiltration of the voting system. Even Doug Jones laughed and was quoted, “He’s claiming voter fraud already? It seems like every time somebody gets behind and they’re going to lose an election, they start claiming voter fraud.”
Hang onto your precious bodily fluids and watch out for the fluoridation because this roller coaster just plunged and this ride is going to get a lot wilder before the last ballot is counted.
