We all know the sad story of Seamus, the Romney family Irish Setter who was strapped to the top of the Romney station wagon for at least one 12-hour trip to Canada â and who at least once pooped himself in fear and, after being given an âemotion-freeâ hosing down by Mitt Romney, was placed once more atop the car for more terrifying hours on the highway.
The Romney family has said previously that Seamus was given away to Romneyâs sister after this fateful trip, and lived out the last of his days on a lovely farm.
But now new questions emerge.
According to Hunter Walker, writing for the Politicker NY, a blog of the New York Observer, Mitt Romney âmay not have told the whole truth about the scandalous tale.â
According to a âtrusted Politicker tipster,â Walker says, âtwo of Romneyâs sons had an off-the-record conversation with reportersâ in which they revealed that Seamus actually âran away when they reached their destinationâ in Canada.
As of this writing, says Walker, âthe Romney campaign has not responded to multiple requests for comment on this story.â
What is the truth about Seamus' fate? Did he live out his days on a bucolic farm, as Romney has said? Or was he abandoned somewhere in Canada, alone, to fend for himself?
