Despite losing to Rep. Gwen Moore by 82,000 votes on Tuesday (A result I rightly predicted, by the way), Dan Sebring, the far-right Republican challenger to incumbent Rep. Moore in the Fourth Congressional District, has refused to concede the election, alleging vote fraud on Facebook before taking the post down. Here’s a screenshot of the post in question, seeing as how Sebring removed it from Facebook:
We are compiling statements from poll workers who can attest to surges of “new” voter registrations without proper verification of residency (like trying to use advertising mailers addressed to “occupant”) and other anomalies at the polls yesterday. If you are a poll worker or voter who witnessed such things I need to hear from you asap!!
I understand that alleging vote fraud in the City of Milwaukee is par for the course for conservatives during an election year, allegations of widespread vote fraud have never been proven, and while I understand Dan Sebring is probably having a hard time coming to grips with the fact that he was absolutely crushed in a year that was obviously favorable to Republicans, one only needs to look at the composition of the Fourth Congressional District to understand that from the moment he declared himself a candidate, Dan Sebring was destined to lose to Rep. Moore.
Ed. Note: I’ve edited the post to include a screenshot of Sebring’s allegations, seeing as how he’s removed it from Facebook.
