Republican Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted is disputing claims of voter fraud in last week's 12th Congressional district special election.
Husted says in a statement his office has been cleaning up the voter rolls since 2011 and cases of fraud are rare. An official winner has not been declared. Nearly eight-thousand absentee and provisional ballots are waiting to be counted. Husted's statement did not include the source of the claims, but a conservative government watchdog group co-founded by former Trump advisor Steve Bannon claimed this week 170 voters were listed as over 116 years of age -- and 72 of them had voted in the 2016 election.
