Mitt Romney, Fred Malek, and Animal Cruelty

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.

When asked about the incident in 2006, Malek offered this explanation: He said he went to Peoria in the summer of '59 to visit friends at Bradley University. They got “drunk out of their minds” and he “didn't know why” one of the other men had killed the dog, that he was “not a participant” and that he was in “no position to stop it.”

Malek just…watched?

What is it with Mitt Romney and animal cruelty?

"When asked about the incident in 2006,"

Very misleading. The alleged incident occurred in 1983 not 2006!

Hire an editor!

Um, maybe you should hire someone to read for you.

Good one, Rusty! Go get 'em! And, I love the new license plate frames. Going to order one.

If you check out the above linked articles you will also see that Fred Malek is also the Nixon White House staffer whose job it was to "purge" Jews from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Nice judge of character, Mitt!

At this rate Obama won't have to do anything, you'll sink your own ship without any help.

Just keep talking, Mr. Mittens.

lol @ anon. Learn to read, and the incident happened in 1959, which it says on the next line. He was questioned about the event in the year 2006, and event which happened in 1959.

Dear God! I did plenty of drinking in my college days but it never occured to me to participate in something this abhorrent. Horrible people.
