    Poor little Roy Moore lost his election, now he's turning his election loss into a half baked crusade on morality. Forget the sexual allegations Roy, what about the fact that you were kicked off the high court in Alabama TWICE for ethics violations?! How does this fit in with your good book, and your Christian pure, goody two shoes evangelism?

    Maybe it's time for the right wing to stop hiding behind their church and admit (just once) that the best candidate won.

    Well, I can't say his refusal to concede is without merit. There was a 0.7% difference between Moore and Jones in the vote count. He said he's waiting for the "official" Alabama vote count. If that's true, he has a right to wait for it. And, honestly, as close as this election is, he would probably be allowed a recount.

    This may be just a sore looser dragging his heels to keep from admitting defeat, but I don't think he's being totally unreasonable here.

    How does it fit in with his Christian evangelism? Did you really just say that? Are you sure you know enough about this to be commenting? FYI, he was only removed once.

    Roy Moore... Christian morality...

    No, I'm not seeing ANYthing in common here, sorry...

    This is probably the most ridiculous thing I'll hear all day.

    1. Yeah, I really did say that.

    2. I'm 62, been a Christian all my life, so yes, I feel I know enough to say this

    3. He was removed twice (see links) Please read them, and ask yourself if breaking the law looks good on a future Senators resume.

    I never said I liked Moore either. Never said I like Trump.
    You cant see the Christian connection?
    #1...Roy Moore was Removed from office for refusing to remove the ten commandment monument.
    #2...Roy Moore was SUSPENDED from office (not removed) for advising probates not to issue same sex marriage license.

    If you cant see the Christian connection you are not wanting to.

    All the votes aren't counted. Within .05 % and a recount. Those pesky outta state SOROS voters at it again. https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/12/13/voter-fraud-and-irregularities-in-alabama-special-senate-election/

    While I am not so sure about your link, something did happen after 80% of votes were tallied. Moore had led by 8/12 points up until then. In the blink of an eye Jones gained over 70,000 votes, then tallies fell back in line.

    I think that is his major reason for a recount. He has to stall the destruction of records. There is no law requiring electronic records being preserved. He had to act immediately to stop them from being destructed.

    May be on the up and up, I don't know. I do know black turnout was higher than in Obama elections...that is absurd..

    So he was removed from office for being an a-hole?

    No, I don't see a "Christian" connection.
