Guy Who Barbequed a Dog Hosting Ann Romney’s Birthday

Guy Who Barbequed a Dog Hosting Ann Romney’s Birthday

Mittens’ dog problem went to another level with the discovery that the campaign donor hosting Ann Romney’s birthday fundraiser today, April 16, once killed, skinned and barbequed a dog.

Frederick Malek III is a Republican brahmin, and he was the National Finance Co-Chair of John McCain’s Presidential campaign.

In 1959, a police officer in Peoria, Illinois, discovered five young men acting suspiciously — they and the inside of their car were covered in blood, and three of them appeared to be burying something. Officers then discovered a skinned dog on a spit elsewhere in the park; its insides had been removed.

Eventually, 22-year-old Malek and his buddies admitted that they’d been drinking earlier that night, and one of the group admitted to beating, killing and preparing the dog for the spit — claiming that he was trying to show Malek and the others ‘something about living off the land.’ Malek swore he had nothing to do with the dog murder. He just stood around while his friend beat a dog to death.

Working for Richard Nixon, Malek’s job was to spot Jews for the President in the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In 2004, both Malek and his company were fined by the Securities and Exchange Commission for corrupt behaviour.

Romney famously mistreated his dog Seamus so cruelly that he has been listed in two national animal abuse databases.

The Romneys have claimed that Seamus was given away to Romney’s sister and lived out the last of his days on a lovely farm. However, in January, it was claimed that the dog ran off in Canada after spending twelve hours on the roof of the Romney station wagon.

Brad Bannon, spokesman of the Super PAC Mitt is Mean, said:

I am surprised Gov. Romney is going to go to this fundraiser and get money from a guy who barbecued a dog, especially with Mitt Romney’s history with dogs. I was shocked and horrified. It illustrates Romney’s general indifference to people and to animals. He doesn’t care about poor people, he doesn’t care about his dog, he doesn’t care about what Fred Malek does to dogs, he is the classic cold blooded corporate raider. He just doesn’t care.

 

Take Action! Tell Mitt Romney to cut ties with Malek.

Whatever Romney does, it's despicable. His views of women and animals are the same: Just here to amuse him and thrown away when not needed. It also tells alot when you see who he's associating with. Romney and Malek deserves eachother and I hope neither get closer to an animal than watching them on TV! Romney disgusts me already and reading stories like these, even more.

Oh, GOOD GRIEF, Donna...........read the facts. Obama admitted to having eaten dogmeat when he was about 8 years old, served to him by his Stepfather at the time, in a country where it was custom.

Michael, please take your "wall of shame" and stuff it somewhere. I'm tired of seeing it in every discussion I go into. It's some "canned" reply or comment and it's gotten very boring.......same as SPAMMING.

If it is in fact true that Obama ate dog and Malek barbequed a dog they are both need a shrink. With all due respect, they are both a$$holes!! I only use the term "with all due respect" because they are both men of priviledge! Which I find DISGUSTING!!

you can tell a lot about a person or society by the way it treats the beings it doesn't think it has to treat well
silence is acceptance, we are change
protect life, prosecute those that seek to destroy our shared home and our fellow beings
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

WTF, over

What is wrong with this whole Romney family? First the poor dog riding on the roof of the car. If your dog is not good enought to ride in your car then you should not have a dog. Then the lady of the barn overmedicating a horse to get rid of it and make some money. As far as something "singing to her soul" find a CD you like. Horses are meant to walk and run - not to dance! And did any of their children speak up in defense of these poor animals? If they are not against it, they must be for it! Are some in this country really going to vote for this person?

What disgusting humans - The Romneys and Merkin. Wish I lived there - I'd love to see them both going round and round on the spitbraai.

Okay to the people that think what obama did was worst, ummm do you realize that Obama was a CHILD when that happened. Also Obama was at an event where he was suppose to make jokes..it was a joke, get over yourself and pull the stick out of your bum if you cannot take a simple joke. So trying to compare the meal Obama had to eat when he was a child and knew nothing wrong about it at the time to Romney who was a grown man at the time he decided to mistreat the dog by strapping him to a roof for over an 8 hour drive to Canada only to "lose" the dog there and not even care about trying to find the dog and now taking support from a man that is known for his discrimination of others and that had no problem watching someone he considers a "friend" beat a dog to death and skin it and cook it when he was a teenager is beyond revolting. It just shows how much Romney truly doesn't care now and he wouldn't care if he were president..if he can so easily be okay with an innocent dog being mistreated then how will he treat people??
