Roger Williams is running for Congress in Texas, and he’s one of the good guys.

He’s also got a sense of humor. But Democrats probably won’t like him.

From Williams’ website, the donkeys are actually his donkeys from his ranch. And it’s an interesting story…

It all started with an ad that Roger and his wife, Patty, saw in the paper. An older gentleman had several donkeys he could no longer care for, so Roger and Patty headed over to meet the man and the animals. I asked Roger once, “Why donkeys?” He responded by saying, “because they’re living creatures and I didn’t want them to be destroyed.”  And that’s how the first donkeys came to be at the ranch. Over the years, Roger and Patty have adopted more donkeys, and the herd has multiplied into the dozens who star in the video.

Nice guy. The donkeys don’t really mind being exploited for political purposes, anyway. Happens to ’em all the time, doesn’t it?
