So far the margin is up to 1.5%. That sucks hard, but should be plenty enough to avoid the auto-recount I think (hope).

My, my.. doesn't this cut into that razor-thin margin the Republicans have been depending on in the Senate? It'll take more than a record-breaking number of Vice President votes to overcome this in future votes..

Gloating aside, FSM knows, I'm delighted. It's still a horribly slender margin, but.. it does show that there are limits to what might be considered a viable candidate - and at such an important moment, with the Republicans absolutely set on passing whatever they can, however unabashedly terrible for their voters, let alone the country.

Good show, Alabama. ^_^

Breitbart's live feed of Roy Moore's election HQ:


(Sadly, they've mixed the audio feed right down, so it's 90% just their canned music, with a little ambient audio)

I was raiding when the news came in, and I summarily deafened 19 people with a scream much like this:

I'd just come back to post something along those lines; my idea is still valid, and somebody's gotta do this:

I think Wrong should start a campaign to change Alabama's state motto to:

Post 2018, the Dems need to actually pay attention to voter suppression and gerrymandering.

https://thinkprogress.org/alabamians...-50ddc1b53b3a/

Quote:
DOTHAN, ALABAMA — Dechauna Jiles was excited to cast a ballot on Tuesday for Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones. She said her parents grew up two blocks from the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, which was bombed by the KKK during the civil rights movement, and it would be a dishonor to her family to not vote in this election.

But when she arrived at her polling place, the First Assembly of God Church, on Tuesday morning, Jiles was told that she was “inactive” on the rolls and would have to cast a provisional ballot — a ballot that will not be counted unless she is able to verify her voter information.
Quote:
Pulling up a local news article on her phone, Jiles pointed to information about how the secretary of state’s office sent out postcards to inactive voters, giving them a chance to change their status. “God knows what addresses they sent these postcards out to,” she said. When she called the secretary of state’s office, Jiles said the person she spoke with claimed that many of their files were “corrupt.”

The files aren't corrupt. The officials are.

Duh.
