Dogs let out on Mitten the Kitten

Seamus the Irish Setter isn’t the only dog Mitt Romney abused.

While Governor of Massachusetts, Romney was approached twice by animal welfare activists seeking his help in banning dog racing in the state.

Romney was made aware that greyhounds used for racing were being kept in cages so small they could barely turn around,

Also, that a dog was being severely injured while racing every 3 – 4 days.

Philip Singer, a top communications staffer for Sen. Hillary Clinton in 2008, said voters concerned with animal welfare seem poised to become a “new voting bloc” in this election.

Romney’s silence on the hotly-contested greyhound racing issue could be “the kind of story that breaks through with people who don’t always follow minute-to-minute developments . . .

Singer added:

Considering that he put his dog on the roof of his car, it’s just not surprising that he wasn’t lined up with animal-rights activists.
