That was my error, I was measuring voltage to ground not neutral.

I removed the thermal fuse and checked it again and it was bad. I guess trying to get my hands and the meter leads down in there it was touching them together. I just finished putting a new thermal fuse, thermostat and heater assembly in and it works great now. I also cleaned the lint out of the dryer and all my piping to the outside of the house. I was actually shocked by how much was clogged up in there. No doubt that was what caused it to overheat.

Thanks for the help.
