Roy Moore files election complaint; John Merrill says certification will proceed

The Roy Moore campaign filed a complaint Wednesday to have the election certification delayed “until a full investigation of voter fraud is conducted,” according to a statement from his campaign.

But Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill told The Associated Press Wednesday evening that he has no intention of delaying the canvassing board meeting.

“It is not going to delay certification, and Doug Jones will be certified (Thursday) at 1 p.m., and he will be sworn in by Vice President Pence on the third of January,” Merrill said.
