(Conservative Tribune) – It’s becoming clear that Democrats will stop at nothing to get their “blue wave” to happen.
In Tuesday’s special election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, Republican Troy Balderson won by a narrow margin — around 1,600 votes.
That’s less than 1 percent of the total number of votes in the entire district, making the election too close to call at the moment and requiring a recount under Ohio law.
Additionally, more than 3,000 provisional ballots still have to be counted — nearly twice the number of votes in the winning margin — so Balderson’s victory is far from assured.
Such a slim margin in this special election has brought to light the dangerous consequences voter fraud can have for those who play fair.
According to expert Eric Eggers, research director at the Government Accountability Institute, 170 registered voters in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District are listed as being “over 116 years old.”
Considering that the world’s oldest living person is a 115-year-old resident of Japan, this is a big problem.
“That’s 10 percent of Balderson’s current margin of victory, pending provisional ballots,” Eggers wrote. “And 72 voters over the age of 116 who ‘live’ in Balderson’s district cast ballots in the 2016 election.”
In fact, many of the voters on Ohio’s rolls list their birthdays as Jan. 1, 1800, making them 218 years old. Clearly something is amiss.
For four years now, Democrats in Ohio have been fighting efforts to prevent voter fraud, and it is easy to see why.
In June, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of Ohio’s system for purging ineligible voters from the rolls, dealing a tough blow to Ohio Democrats.
If voter ID laws are passed and implemented as a result of that Supreme Court ruling, those 170 impossibly old voters would no longer be able to cast ballots — and that is something the fraudulent Democrats of the state desperately want to avoid.
“A critical swing state, Ohio has voted for the winner in presidential races in twenty-eight out of the last thirty elections. As Ohio goes, so goes the nation,” former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell wrote on American Thinker.
“While it may seem strange to witness millions of dollars pouring into a down ballot race in the heartland, there is a method to the Democrats’ madness,” Blackwell continued.
“Delve below the surface, and you will see that the Democrats have their sights set on 2020, defeating Donald Trump, taking back the presidency.”
And they will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.
