Romney's New Dog Gone Problem....

Romney just can't seem to get past "Seamusgate", so wife Ann came to the rescue in an interview they had with ABC's Diane Sawyer yesterday by proclaiming how much Seamus just loved riding in his crate atop their station wagon, and how she thought it was much better than leaving him in a kennel. Mitt's remark was that he just hoped the controversy would end. Not many dog owners were impressed about a 12 hour drive from Boston to Western Canada with only pit stops for gas and snacks when they first heard it. They may be less impressed hearing this.



Mittens’ dog problem went to another level with the discovery that the campaign donor who hosted Ann Romney’s birthday fundraiser on April 16, once killed, skinned and barbequed a dog.


Frederick Malek III is a Republican brahmin, and he was the National Finance Co-Chair of John McCain’s Presidential campaign.


In 1959, a police officer in Peoria, Illinois, discovered five young men acting suspiciously — they and the inside of their car were covered in blood, and three of them appeared to be burying something. Officers then discovered a skinned dog on a spit elsewhere in the park; its insides had been removed.


Eventually, 22-year-old Malek and his buddies admitted that they’d been drinking earlier that night, and one of the group admitted to beating, killing and preparing the dog for the spit — claiming that he was trying to show Malek and the others ‘something about living off the land.’ Malek swore he had nothing to do with the dog murder. He just stood around while his friend beat a dog to death.


Working for Richard Nixon, Malek’s job was to spot Jews for the President in the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In 2004, both Malek and his company were fined by the Securities and Exchange Commission for corrupt behaviour.


Romney famously mistreated his dog Seamus so cruelly that he has been listed in two national animal abuse databases.


The Romneys have claimed that Seamus was given away to Romney’s sister and lived out the last of his days on a lovely farm. However, in January, it was claimed that the dog ran off in Canada after spending twelve hours on the roof of the Romney station wagon.


Brad Bannon, spokesman of the Super PAC Mitt is Mean, said:


I am surprised Gov. Romney is going to go to this fundraiser and get money from a guy who barbecued a dog, especially with Mitt Romney’s history with dogs. I was shocked and horrified. It illustrates Romney’s general indifference to people and to animals. He doesn’t care about poor people, he doesn’t care about his dog, he doesn’t care about what Fred Malek does to dogs, he is the classic cold blooded corporate raider. He just doesn’t care.




Take Action! Tell Mitt Romney to cut ties with Malek.

    Such a stupid statement by Ann Romney about the dog enjoying being strapped on the roof of a car. I wonder if Mittens gets annoyed with his wife, would he strap her on the roof?

    The Romney's apparently suffer from a lack of empathy for those outside the magic circle of:

    A. the family
    B. the wealthy

    Apparently, a dog doesn't qualify as family.

    I don't think I want this man as my president.

    Poor Seamus, no wonder he ran away from home so often. The Romney's chuckling defense of treating their dog like that is not helping them one bit, obviously.
    As horrible as that Malek story is, it happened a long ago. I'd have to give Romney a pass on that one, unless there is some indication that the Malek guy is still a sick animal abuser.

    I'm not a Romney supporter, and putting the dog on the roof of the car was cruel and stupid, but this new story is not relevant. There's no way to find out what every donor has been up to for the last 53 years. I'm sure the Romney's didn't know about the dog barbeque.

    It should also be noted that there are cultures where eating dogs is not taboo. My wife's stepmother is from the Philippines, and she told us that they eat dog there on special occasions.

    Since Romney is such a great lover of Israel, he should be more concerned about Malek identifying certain Jews for Nixon's enemies list. Nixon used Hoover and the FBI to harass his enemies.
  • Willie luvguins 2012/04/19 19:28:41

    Again, I'm not sure how closely we should expect candidates to investigate the backgrounds of their supporters. If Malek was being offered a role in the campaign or in a (unlikely) Romney administration, then yes, background should be checked that carefully and considered. For a donor, though, I've got my doubts about what is realistic.

    Well he was Finance Co-Chair of McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, so someone should have known about his past with Nixon.

    The other day I refrained from saying what was churning deep within me. I can no longer do that in good conscience. There's an old saying "Birds of a feather flock together." Mitt Romney & his ilk have proven this to be so very true.

    It has often been said that many serial killers tortured animals when they were young. And THIS is what the GOP wants to run OUR COUNTRY? Abraham Lincoln must be rolling over in his grave.

    Yes, Seamus was so crazy about riding roof top, he messed all over the crate and the back window of the car. With no butler or nanny present, Mittens had to clean up the mess and Seamus.

    Mitt has a few dollars. He could have had the dog flown.

    I'm with you on that. Can't defend the indefensible. Ann should pull up her big girl britches and say, "We made a mistake. It was a terrible thing to do."
