Mayor does it doggy style!

Midweek Sport - - TELEVISION X -

A DOG has been elected as a town MAYOR.

Duke The Great Pyre­nees is now the high­est po­lit­i­cal fig­ure in Cor­morant, Min­nesota.

“He’s the only dog that’s been elected mayor in Amer­ica,” said lo­cal res­i­dent Becky Ul­ven.

David Rick, Duke’s owner, said: “Three years ago, it hap­pened by ac­ci­dent, it was a write in vote. You pay a dol­lar and you can vote.”

De­spite be­ing elected as a joke, the po­lit­i­cal pooch has one of the high­est ap­proval ratings in the coun­try.

And Duke has been re-elected for a third term.

Owner David added: “Ev­ery­body voted for Duke, ex­cept for one vote for his girl­friend Lassie.”
