By now, everyone knows the story of Seamus, the Romney family dog that got strapped to roof of the family car, resulting in a million jokes and the seriously extensive Dogs Against Romney blog. They have another Romney-related canine bombshell this week about the hosts of Ann Romney’s birthday fund-raiser, via Jezebel:


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.

Fred Malek is also part of a group of men who were arrested after killing and barbecuing a dog in a city park in Peoria, IL in 1959.
