Giggles the Pig is running for mayor and slinging mud, but one of her opponents snaps back with a grisly threat.

Two legs bad, four legs not a convicted murderer.

One candidate is running to take a stand against criminal politicians in the city of Flint, Michigan, and she's also an adorable piglet named Giggles. Flint's mayoral race seems bleak. Some of the names in contention for the mayor's office are downright scoundrels; one is even a convicted murderer. Local defense attorney Michael Ewing decided to fight this systemic corruption by doing something serious: He started a Facebook campaign to elect his pig the mayor of Flint.

Meet Giggles. This pig is running for mayor of Flint.

In a post on the 'Giggles The Pig For Mayor' Facebook page, Ewing writes

"I am pretty forgiving, but I am really strongly opposed to murder—and think electing a mayor who was convicted of murder sends a bad message about our city. ... We also have a mayoral candidate who was recently convicted for driving his car while drunk on the highway with three flat tires—while driving the wrong direction on the highway. ... Flint deserves better candidates than this. While reading about these people it occurred to me that Giggles would be a more dignified candidate—and I'm right."
