The scandal surrounding Mitt Romney and the dog he crated and mounted to the top of his vehicle for a 5 hour trip to Canada in 1983. It has been reported the dog, an Irish Setter named Seamus, was so fearful that he defecated in the crate. Obviously a play on the words "Romney Gate".
The PETA people launched a campaign against Mitt Romney after the wide publicity of Romneycrate.
