BONUS: Animals Who Ran for Office

1. Hank

The son of a single mother who also spent time on death row -- does that not scream politician sob story? Hank the cat scratched his way into the Virginia senate race by promising a focus on job creation if he makes it to DC. The power-hungry kitty’s official campaign website details what makes Hank the perfect choice for Congress: “Hank is a refreshing candidate -- energetic, inspiring, and real. Unlike so many others, he wasn’t born with a “silver spoon” -- but earned his success and his name through hard work.” Hank will have to defeat George Allen, Tim Kaine and the distraction of laser pointers if he hopes to have a chance in November.
