As a way to raise money, a small town in Vermont decided to hold an election for an "honorary mayor" of the town. Constituents had to choose from more than a dozen animal candidates, everything from the goat to a dog that likes sucking on pacifiers. Well, long story short, the goat (named Lincoln) won. And her first order of business after being sworn in? Take a dump on the floor...
Fair Haven Town Manager Joe Gunter came up with the idea of electing an animal as honorary mayor as a way to raise money for a local playground for the small Vermont town.
Children who wanted to vote had to make a $5 contribution.
Gunter didn't exactly reach his fundraising goal — he was looking to raise $70,000 but instead made only $100.
