Reminiscent of ballots being found in the trunk of a car in the razor-thin U.S. Senate race in Minnesota that put Al ‘Wandering Hands’ Franken in office, election officials in Ohio “found” extra ballots that closed Tuesday’s hotly contested special election there for Congress.
(The Democratic candidate, Danny O’Connor, refuses to concede to the Republican winner, Troy Balderson, until “all the votes” are counted.)
In addition to that anomaly, Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk noted the high number of registered voters over the age of 116 on the rolls in the Buckeye State — which may be a testament to the fine living in Ohio, except that the oldest person in the world is 115 years old and lives in Japan.
“Voter fraud is real,” Kirk tweeted. “170 Voters in Ohio Race ‘Over 116 Years Old,’ World’s Oldest Person Is 115.”
Voter fraud is real:

Fox News’ Shannon Bream also posted a tweet noting the “interesting headline.”
Well, that's an interesting headline: 170 Voters in Ohio Race ‘Over 116 Years Old,’ World’s Oldest Person Is 115

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee replied to Bream’s tweet with an observation of his own.
@ShannonBream that’s nothing. Dead people have been voting in Arkansas for years!” he tweeted.

The troubling data comes from Eric Eggers, research director at the Government Accountability Institute, who reported Ohio’s 12th Congressional District had “170 registered voters listed as being over 116 years old [that] still existed on the [voter] rolls,” according to The Daily Wire.
And some of these centenarians voted in 2016.
“And 72 voters over the age of 116 who ‘live’ in Balderson’s district cast ballots in the 2016 election,” Eggers wrote.
Incidentally, The Washington Free Beacon reported that spooky dude George Soros, the billionaire Democratic donor, pledged millions of dollars to fight voter ID laws in Ohio before the 2016 elections.
And while there has been no reports of voter fraud, circumstances certainly make the possibility very real.
With Democrats fighting any and all efforts to shore up voter rolls, crying won’t do much good so social media users opted to laugh instead:

If we had that many people 116 yrs old they would be on national TV & we would know their names! Check registrations Ohio!!!

But Voter ID disenfranchises dead people.

I’m going to make sure when I retire not to move to Ohio. I haven’t voted Democrat once in my life, and don’t want it to start after I die.

Voter Id needs to be mandatory to cast a vote in any election….. this is ridiculous!
