Voter Fraud in America, Continued

Fox News gave time today to a voter fraud story from Ohio, which they reported like this:
Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced Wednesday that his office found 17 non-citizens illegally cast ballots in the 2012 presidential election -- and has referred the case for possible prosecution... Husted also found that 274 non-citizens remain on the voting rolls. President Obama beat Mitt Romney in Ohio by just 2 percentage points in November 2012.
Which is written to sound as portentous as possible, but since Obama won Ohio by 166,272 votes his margin still seems safe to me, and he didn't actually need Ohio anyway.
