The Dog Days of Romney (Continued)

As we continue our in-depth coverage of the “CrateGate” sage involving Mitt Romney’s dog, Seamus, Politicker cracks open what might be the most interesting part of the debacle thus far. We’ve told you all about Seamus and the road trip from Hell, but there might be more to the story than just the ride on the roof of the car. The official story has been that Romney gave the dog away to his sister after that trip. But, Politicker says that might not be the whole truth.

“According to a trusted Politicker tipster, two of Mr. Romney’s sons had an off-record conversation with reporters where they revealed the dog ran away when they reached their destination on that infamous journey in 1983.”

So, there you have it. After Romney LITERALLY scared the shit out of him, Seamus headed for the hills never to be heard from again. We can’t hardly blame the pooch.
