Failed Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore still hasn’t conceded that he lost last week’s election to Democrat Doug Jones — and now he’s asking his supporters to send him money so he can overturn alleged “voter fraud” in the state.
The Advocate reports that Moore sent out an email to supporters this week asking them to send money to his so-called “Election Integrity Program,” whose goal is to uncover tens of thousands of purportedly “illegal” votes that cost him the election.
“Reports of potential voter fraud and various other irregularities are streaming in from all across the state,” read the fundraising email. “Campaign staff and volunteers are chasing down and investigating each and every report the moment they’re received.”
However, according to WHNT reporter Chris Davis, Moore’s campaign has not yet actually delivered any evidence of voter fraud to the state.
“Secretary of State John Merrill tells me, so far he hasn’t received any voter fraud reports from the Moore campaign, despite their promises to do so in a recent campaign email,” he writes.

The Moore campaign is seeking to raise at least $75,000 to fund its efforts to overturn last week’s election.
