While most Americans were busy with their lives earlier this week, all political eyes were on a special election in an obscure Ohio district that POTUS Donald Trump handily won in 2016 and which has been in Republican hands since the early 1980s.
Ordinarily, such a seat wouldn’t be competitive, but because Democrats deemed it an important ‘bell weather election’ and a pre-2018 midterm ‘glimpse’ into the president’s real popularity, the party poured millions of dollars into the race to promote their candidate, Danny O’Connor.
But after the results were tallied, the GOP candidate, Troy Balderson, came out on top, though by just 1 percent of the vote. All this week Democrats have been spinning the election as some sort of “moral” victory – though a win is a win and a loss is a loss.
So that’s it, right? Nothing more to see here. After all, the race will be repeated in November because the seat is up for election again in just a few months; the winner replaces Rep. Patrick Tiberi, a Republican who is retiring and has already left Washington.
Not so fast.
It looks like Balderson’s lead got even slimmer after Franklin County election officials ‘discovered’ 588 “previously uncounted” ballots in a suburb of Columbus, giving O’Connor an additional 190 votes and cutting Balderson’s lead to 1,564.
“The votes from a portion of one voting location had not been processed into the tabulation system,” said the Franklin County Board of Elections in a news release, USA Today reported.
Oh, really? So, this was the first election ever staged in Franklin County? Everyone’s new at it? Ballots ‘just got overlooked?’ Seriously? (Related: Researcher claims a ‘TSUNAMI’ of voter fraud coming in 2018 midterms.)
The election results are not final yet anyway. USA Today reported that there are 3,435 provisional ballots and 5,084 absentee ballots to be counted as well, a process that will be completed by Aug. 24. If the final tally shows a difference between the two candidates of a half-percent or less, that will trigger an automatic recount.
But come on. Shenanigans?
Talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh discussed the ‘discrepancy’ on his show Thursday. He smells a rat (and so do we).
“What a shock. What a real shook,” Limbaugh said. “Whenever an election is close somehow the Democrats always find a big bag of votes somewhere. It happened with the Al Franken, Stuart Smalley election when he was running for the Senate in Minnesota.
“They find ’em in the trunk of a car. They find ’em underneath a church pew. Can somebody cite a case where a Republican has ever come from behind to win a close race after finding a bunch of uncounted votes? I can’t,” he continued. “Now, it may be the case, because who among us — even including me — can remember every election and story related to it?”
Limbaugh quoted from a Cincinnati Enquirer report noting how the newly discovered ballots hadn’t been tabulated yet, then said, “Who are we to believe?” when tying it all into his larger point that Democrats are attempting to frame every election (that they don’t win) as somehow tainted in a bigger push to someday do away with them altogether in a manner that benefits them.
He noted that all the talk from Democrats about “Russian meddling” in the 2016 election and even how then-Vice President Al Gore lost narrowly to George W. Bush in 2000 ‘proves’ that our voting system is ‘hopelessly broken’ and must be done away with completely.
“Once you have corrupted, once you have raised doubts, once you have cast a pall over the integrity of elections,” then the next logical step is to get rid of them.
Democrats are playing the long game here, but we’ve seen their strategy now and we know where they’re going with it.
