Crate-Gate Follows Mitt Romney to Westminster Dog Show

It’s been almost 30 years since Romney strapped his family’s Irish Setter, Seamus, on the roof of a station wagon en route to Canada, but no one seems about to let sleeping dogs lie with this one. Yesterday at the Westminster Dog Show in NYC, a group of protesters called Dogs Against Romney gathered “everyone who believes dogs aren’t luggage” to “protest Romney’s abusive treatment of dogs” outside of Madison Square Garden.
