Late at night on election Tuesday, 12/12, Republican Senate hopeful Roy Stewart Moore addressed his cheering supporters and firmly denied accusations that he had lost the election to Democratic candidate Doug Jones.
“These allegations are completely false,” Moore stated on national TV. “I did not lose this election. I never lost anything. These allegations are false.”
Mr. Moore further stated that the timing of the statement that he lost the election, exactly on election day and right after the votes were counted, is too politically convenient to be true.
“If I had really lost the election,” he said, “why didn’t they say that 30 years earlier? Why are they saying I lost the election exactly today, after the counting the votes?”
According to Mr. Moore, the statement that he lost the election is a last-ditch effort of Democrats to stop him from winning.
“It is politically motivated,” he said. “I see no other reason why they would be saying this. This is a vicious, politically-motivated lie.”
President Trump promptly threw his support behind the Republican candidate as soon as the election results became public, saying that he believed Mr. Moore when the latter claimed he did not lose the election.
“Look, he denies it,” said Trump. “He denies it. He says he did not lose. You have to look at it from his point of view too.”
