Turn signal fuse keeps blowing. 87 300d

Seems like I have a short to ground that I cannot find. I measure ground to L and R pins in the hazard socket and get 22 ohms or so. I've pulled all the front turn signal plugs and got the same reading at #3 pin on those. At fuse #6 (the one that blows) I get the same 22 ohms from the top. What is confusing to me, I get 22 ohms across + and - battery terminals with battery removed.

Thoughts? This followed an IP swap and some vacuuming in the engine bay. I also found some rat droppings and a half eaten block of poison in the bay as well. (I had left the car outside for a week).
