Meet the ‘Occupy’ Movement’s First Elected Leader

Yes, it’s true — the first official “Occupy” leader is a dog. This historic moment comes courtesy of Occupy Denver:

Occupy Denver’s General Assembly voted on a leader and chose a three-year-old border collie named Shelby to head the group.

According to the groups website, this was done after Denver Mayor Michael Hancock insisted that Occupy Denver choose leadership to deal with City and State officials.

I’ve heard “Occupy” equated to Animal Farm before, but up to now the comparison wasn’t literal.

There were actually two candidates vying for the leadership position, and one was clearly the best urban outdoor bathroom-goer. Unfortunately that guy had business at the bank, so they chose the border collie.

Shelby seems to have an “if elected I will not serve” attitude here, so I’m not sure how this leadership thing is going to work out:

First order of business? #OccupyAlpo
