It's not hogwash, the latest candidate to throw her hat in the pen for Flint's mayoral race is a pig.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Giggles the Pig! (Or is that meat Giggles the Pig?)

Giggles faces some pretty stiff competition -- like a convicted murderer, and a councilman convicted of driving drunk the wrong way down I-475 on three flat tires -- but she may have the chops to win anyway! And Giggles is one candidate that welcomes mudslinging!

If she wins, this could be a pig improvement!

Defense attorney Michael Ewing has put his pig 'Giggles' into the race as a write-in candidate, after the debacle that has led to no candidates -- including current Flint Mayor Dayne Walling -- being eligible to be included on the August primary ballot. The 'Giggles the Pig for Mayor' Facebook page has already gained 1,800 followers.

If Giggles is able to bring home the bacon, expect a swine and cheese reception at city hall.
