Mitt Romney has taken plenty of heat for the family vacation he took with his dog in a carrier on the roof of his car, but it appears a woman in Washington state has lowered the bar.
Speeding down the freeway near the town of Bothell, she was arrested, along with her fiance, when state troopers found the family dog in the trunk.
Oh, and the woman's three kids were in there too.
Officers were alerted when they stopped the car, which had been traveling at 77 mph in a 60-mph zone, and heard "a thumping sound," Washington State Patrol spokesman Keith Leary said in a statement.
The driver, 28-year-old Anna Boyle, of Woodinville, Wash., appeared "very nervous" as officers approached the car and she fumbled through paperwork and garbage on the floor, Leary said.
That's when the thumping sound was heard, he said. Troopers reported that they first thought it was the sound of bass speakers in the trunk, until one of them saw the lid of the trunk move.
