Mexican Candidate Worse than Mitt Romney!

I thought Mitt Romney and the crated dog on the speeding car roof was bad. But Mitt is St. Francis of Assisi in comparison to this guy running for office in Mexico.

Jorge Hank Rhon brags about drinking tequila mixed with bear bile and steeped with the penises of tigers, lions and dogs. He has weathered allegations of ties to drug trafficking, money laundering and murder-for-hire.

But none of that seemed to matter to his supporters as the dog-track owner and Tijuana mayor closed his campaign for governor of Mexico's Baja California state this week.

...But Hank Rhon -- who keeps a private zoo with 20,000 animals -- loves a good fight, and has overcome much bigger obstacles. The son of a Institutional Revolutionary Party boss, he overcame a double-digit deficit in the polls to become Tijuana's mayor three years ago, despite claiming during the campaign that ''women'' were his favorite animals.


Charming fellow.
