A video from a news report has prompted Alabama’s Secretary of State to investigate claims of voter fraud in the special election.
Here’s what happened on the video:
If you didn’t catch it, a young kid, clearly a liberal (and probably an immergant), says that he and his friends came from all over the country, voted and got Doug Jones elected. BOOM! Voter fraud!!
From Fox 10 TV:
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.
And then later he said everything checks out with the dude:
Thanks to the help of concerned citizens interested in the credibility and the integrity of the electoral process, the Alabama Secretary of State’s Office was able to identify the young man who was anonymously featured on the news broadcast. After additional research was conducted, it was determined that this young man has lived and worked in Alabama for more than one year and is currently a registered voter in this state.
We applaud this young man’s energy, excitement, and enthusiasm for the electoral process and we are always encouraged when we observe Alabamians who are actively engaged in campaigns and elections in our state.
So that’s that. But you’ll still see this story flying around as proof that the special election was stolen because there’s no way Trump could have lost in Alabama, [Roy Moore posted it himself!] even though it wasn’t about Trump at all, dammit MAGA!!!
