Election officials have “found” new ballots that were supposedly not counted during Tuesday’s special election in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District.
“Republican Troy Balderson’s narrow lead in the special election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional District got even narrower on Wednesday, as Franklin County elections officials discovered additional uncounted ballots that favored Democrat Danny O’Connor,” according to Cleveland.com.
Franklin County is the only county in the district that O’Connor won on Tuesday.
The 588 ballots were found during a “routine audit,” and have cut Balderson’s lead to a total of 1,564 votes. O’Connor has refused to concede the election as the two candidates wait for 8,483 provisional and absentee ballots to be processed.
Of the ballots that have not been counted, 2,440 are from Franklin County, making it conceivable that O’Connor could still eek out a victory, though it’s unlikely as provisional ballots are often deemed invalid.
If O’Conner manages to narrow Balderson’s lead to 0.5%, or 1,017 total votes an automatic recount will take place per state law.
President Donald J. Trump claimed victory for Balderson on Wednesday after endorsing him at an Ohio rally early this week.
“When I decided to go to Ohio for Troy Balderson, he was down in early voting 64 to 36. That was not good. After my speech on Saturday night, there was a big turn for the better. Now Troy wins a great victory during a very tough time of the year for voting. He will win BIG in Nov,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Suffice to say there could be major Republican backlash should the results be flipped and O’Connor determined the winner.
TRUST THE MAN: Here’s A Growing Map of Deep State Conspirators Who Have Been Fired
President Donald Trump continues to solidify the American people’s position in the federal government.
Former FBI director James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.
Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release).

Comey is not alone in his government unemployment.
An interactive mapping project has sprung up on mindmeister to track Deep State conspirator cells that have been fired in the age of President Donald Trump.
