Okay so I don't think the switch is involved. The switch is to a fireplace fan. When I measured the "switch" there was only one measurent, from hot to hot across the switch. When I say hot I mean black. When I say neautral I mean white. When I say ground I mean exposed copper wire.
The first measurement is across the switch. The other 3 measurements are at the outlet. I was not clear sorry.
When installing the new outlet two things happened. First I had to drill a hole in the 2x4 behind the drywall, not easy. Second when I was cramming the outlet back in the box I did not tuck the ground wire away well enough as the breaker tripped when I turned it back on. I adjusted the outlet in the box and it was fine after that.
