Thursday, December 28, 2017, the Jefferson County Republican Party released a statement concerning the Roy Moore Lawsuit allegations that he lost the special election due to voter fraud.
“The Jefferson County Republican Party, in cooperation with the Alabama Republican Party and the Moore for Senate Campaign, had trained poll watchers observing the voting process at key precincts in the county during the U.S. Senate Special Election earlier this month,” said Jefferson County GOP Executive Director Jeannie Negron Faherty. “Additionally, observers were present at both the Downtown and Bessemer courthouses during the counting of the absentee ballots, and JeffCoGOP Chairman Sallie Bryant was present at the main courthouse that night during the tabulation of the ballots. Chairman Bryant was also present last week when the write-in votes were counted, and former JeffCoGOP Chairman (and current District 47 Constable) Gilbert Douglas was present for the county’s vote certification last Friday. At no time were there any reports of voter fraud, nor did any of our officials witness anything suspicious in nature.”
