BREAKING: Judge Says Mitt Romney "Probably" Guilty of Animal Abuse

A judge in an Oregon courtroom Friday made it clear he believes Mitt Romney “probably” would have been found guilty of animal abuse for strapping his crated dog to the roof of a car for a 12-hour trip. Multnomah County Circuit Judge Kenneth Walker made the statement in open court during the trial of two Oregon men charged with second-degree animal abuse.

As reported in The Oregonian, the two men were arrested after accidentally dragging their dog behind a truck. The question put before the court was this: Is it a crime to tie a dog to a car, forget about it, then drive off?

While arguing in her clients’ defense, attorney Lisa Pardini said to Judge Walker that even people in prominent positions of power sometimes make bad decisions, using Mitt Romney as an example. 

"Our presidential candidate tied up a dog and drove off with him for quite a while," Pardini said. 

To that, Judge Walker said: "I would have probably found him guilty for that." 

Ultimately, Judge Walker agreed with the defense, finding the two men were “negligent” but not guilty of animal abuse. The dog survived the incident.
