Dog Elected President of Virginia Civic Association

By Vladimir Negron    February 22, 2011 at 03:40PM

A civic association in Annandale, VA. has accidentally elected a dog as president. According to reports, Bethea Lee, a Wheaten terrier that belongs to former president Mark Crawford, was elected president of the Hillbrook-Tall Oaks Civic Association at their annual meeting.

"She had a name," resident Robin Klein Browder told The Washington Post. "It wasn't Spot or Rover. Everyone thought she was human."

Until this is rectified, Bethea could very well enact several new bylaws -- such as mandatory bacon breakfasts, 30-minute daily walks, and 1-hour play sessions for dog-owning residents.

Also included in the meeting minutes were the election of Scrooge McDuck as treasurer, Alvin Chip Munk as chairperson, and Sasquatch Mcpherson as head of security.
