Unhhh…should this Alabama Senator’s election be considered illegitimate?

As covered by RedState.com, from a NY Times article: “Doug Jones Senate Campaign Created Bogus Russian Supporters to Hurt Roy Moore”

“As Russia’s online election machinations came to light last year, a group of Democratic tech experts decided to try out similarly deceptive tactics in the fiercely contested Alabama Senate race…The project’s operators created a Facebook page on which they posed as conservative Alabamians, using it to try to divide Republicans and even to endorse a write-in candidate to draw votes from Mr. Moore. It involved a scheme to link the Moore campaign to thousands of Russian accounts that suddenly began following the Republican candidate on Twitter, a development that drew national media attention. “We orchestrated an elaborate ‘false flag’ operation that planted the idea that the Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a Russian botnet,” the report says.”

In an election with some 1.3 mn votes, Mr. Moore lost by some 21k votes.

In a PROVEN act, a Democrat senator was elected by illegitimate, deceptive means.

Does the state of Alabama have a RECALL process in place?
