WHO LET THE DOG OUT?
Milford bondsman and Tea Party Republican candidate Matt Maddock isn’t taking any chances this November. “For the first time in the 44th House District (Highland, Milford, Springfield, Waterford, White Lake), we’ve got a Democrat running,” Maddock said. She’s very aggressive. Her name is Laura Dodd. She’s cutesie, she’s knocking on doors, and she’s going to give us a run for the money.” Dodd, who holds a master’s degree in non-profit administration from Notre Dame, where she was recognized for her community service, said she appreciated the compliments. To help his position, Maddock is calling in celebrity bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman to sic his opponent at an October 2 fundraiser featuring Dog and his wife, Beth. Chapman is best known for his show “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” which was cancelled in 2012 by A&E. The show also was placed on hiatus in 2007 following the release of an audio recording to the National Enquirer in which Dog repeatedly used the n-word in a conversation with his son, Tucker, about the word and his son’s black girlfriend’s sensitivity to it. Dog returned the following season after apologizing on television and making amends with leaders in the black community. “They are a little rough around the edges, but they are two of the most interesting people you will ever meet or hear from,” Maddock said.
