Ouch! Dog bites politician but she gets a vote
FRANKENMUTH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- A woman running for the Michigan Legislature was bitten by a dog while going door to door. The dog's distressed owner has made amends: Ann Doyle can put a campaign sign on his property.
Doyle says she didn't see the dog until it was too late Wednesday. She was campaigning in Saginaw County's Frankenmuth Township when the dog bit her three times. The Saginaw News (http://bit.ly/L1LdgC) says the owner heard the commotion and called off the animal.
Doyle says she was bleeding and blacked out but is doing much better. She won't identify the dog's owner but says he agreed to take a campaign sign. Doyle calls it a "sympathy vote."
