Mexico's Candidate Cat has a predecessor: Fidel the dog

After reading this post on Boing Boing about a cat for mayor in one Mexican town, my friend Ejival from glamorous Tijuana writes,

Your Morris the Candigato post reminded me of CANDIDATO FIDEL ( the campaign was full of double entendre political slang (hueso: a job in the government), mordida (corruption), etc. He ran three years ago in Guadalajara and actually got more votes than the PRD party in one of the districts.

You can se some of the ballots where people voted for him here. This is my favorite one.

YES WE CAN (Can is the abrvdt scientific term for dog in Mexico).
