Officials Magically Find Hundreds of New Votes That Boost Dem in Toss-up Ohio Election

Share

The Democrat candidate in the Ohio special election, Danny O’Connor, has been trailing behind the GOP’s Troy Balderson.

The race was expected to be an easy win for Republicans, but we all know how inaccurate voter polling can be.

But now O’Connor has narrowed his margin with the “discovery” of 588 votes.

According to The Hill, Balderson now leads by only 1,564 votes. This will most certainly fluctuate as the 3,435 provisional ballots and 5,048 absentee ballots are counted.

O’Connor was quick to celebrate (and to ask for more money) as soon as he heard the news.

So where did these votes come from?

The Franklin County Board of Elections announced “the votes from a portion of one voting location had not been processed into the tabulation system.” Seeing as how a voting location’s sole purpose is to collect and submit votes, this excuse sounds a little fishy.

This really makes you wonder how many votes are still floating in electoral space, waiting for someone to discover them.

Do you think there was any foul play involved here?

But summoning votes from the ether is not O’Connor’s only trick. As Donald Trump Jr. discovered, he also has the ability to magically make his opponents vanish from Twitter, even when searched.

That’s right. People were only shown one candidate when the election was searched on the social media platform.

If you’ve been keeping track, this is two magic tricks already that have been a huge boon for O’Connor. There’s no telling how many more rabbits he has stored in his hat.

There are still votes that have not been counted, and both camps are waiting for a miracle. Since Ohio law triggers an automatic recount if the margin is 0.5 percent or less, the election for the Democrats has been a race to close the gap.

The reappearing votes have put O’Connor one step closer to doing that.

It must be the luck of the Irish.
