One F%$# of a Crime Wave You Got There, Kid

The Secretary of State for the great state of Ohio, has referred 27 to the local constabulary for possible prosecution.

That’s out of almost 6 million votes case, and so Republican (Of Course) Frank LaRose is declaring some sort of emergency over this, because the non-Euclidian geometry of their flag has rotted his brain.

Or maybe, conservatism is just plain mental illness:

Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose (R) has referred just 27 potential instances of illegal votes cast in the 2020 presidential election to state and local prosecutors for investigation, an indication of what he called a secure election two years ago.

In a press release Tuesday, LaRose said his office had identified 62 potential cases of election fraud in recent years. Of those, 31 were noncitizens who registered to vote but did not cast a ballot in any election.

Another four cases involved people casting potentially illegal ballots in other elections.

In the 2020 elections, LaRose said his office identified four noncitizens who potentially cast a ballot that year, 14 deceased citizens whose ballots were potentially cast and nine individuals who may have voted more than once.

More than 5.9 million registered voters cast ballots in the 2020 elections in Ohio, setting the rate of potential fraud — assuming all of the 27 cases are in fact fraud — at just 0.0005 percent.

“Our state is proof positive you don’t have to choose between secure or convenient elections — we have both,” LaRose said. “In Ohio, easy to vote and hard to cheat aren’t mutually exclusive. At the end of the day, these referrals are all about accountability.”

No, this proves that voter fraud allegations are a fraud themselves.
