FLINT, Mich.  — A new candidate threw her hat into the ring in the run for Mayor in Flint, and she certainly seems to be hamming it up for her campaign.

According to WNEM, Giggles the Pig is making a run for office thanks to a clerical error that caused all of the candidates to miss the petition deadline. That means there’s a possibility that there won’t be any human candidates on the ballot this fall, leaving it up to the write-ins.

Among some of the qualities Giggles is promoting include the fact that she has no criminal history, she supports police, and she has never missed a deadline.

Giggles also has her own Facebook page complete with a #Giggles4Flint movement to help with the campaign.

Sources say the platform she’s running on is simply…bacon.
