I guess Mitt Romney’s problem with dogs goes the distance — it’s not enough to strap your family dog into a crate on the top of your vacation vehicle; he parties with people reveling at animal cruelty to man’s best friend as well. From Dogs Against Romney:

If you read this blog, you already know about Mitt Romney’s history of animal cruelty.

On Monday, Romney will be the beneficiary of a fundraiser that is being hosted for him by Fred Malek. Who is Malek? He is the former President of Marriott Hotels and Northwest Airlines; former assistant to U.S. Presidents Richard Nixon and H.W. Bush; and former National Finance Committee Co-Chair for John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Malek’s explanation is that he and his friends were “drunk out of their minds.” and “didn’t know why” one of his pals killed the dog. Of course he didn’t do anything to stop it, and hung around for the BBQ.
