WASHINGTON D.C. — Governor Kay Ivey of Alabama certified Doug Jones as winner of this month's Senate election on Thursday, ignoring a legal challenge by his opponent, Roy S. Moore.

The certification action rejected Moore's complaint alleging "systematic voter fraud." Jones won with 21,924 votes.

Moore, whose campaign was dogged by allegations of bigotry and sexual misconduct with teenage girls, has still not conceded his loss.

"You win with class, you lose with class, and he just can't do it," said GOP strategist Angi Horn Stalnaker, in a report by The New York Times.

In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in state court, Moore claimed that the Dec. 12 special election had been tainted by pervasive fraud that Alabama authorities failed adequately to investigate.

Just minutes before the vote was certified, Judge Johnny Hardwick of Montgomery County Circuit Court dismissed Moore's complaint for lack of jurisdiction. And Secretary of State John H. Merrill, who voted for Moore, said he had found no evidence of voter fraud and declined to postpone the certification.

Jones' transition team called the lawsuit "a desperate attempt by Roy Moore to subvert the will of the people," according to The Times.

Legal experts unaffiliated with either campaign said the lawsuit's arguments appear to be without merit.

"It seems to boil down to: I should have won under the exit poll and all of this voting by African-Americans must show fraud," wrote Richard L. Hasen, an elections law expert at the University of California, Irivine, in his Election Law blog.
