Help me find the story about an upset kid who changed the outcome of an election.

IIRC, the story is about a kid and his dog. His neighbor poisons/hurts/kills the dog after finding the dog shitting in his yard. This neighbor is the towns mayor. To get even, the kid drives all the homeless people to the polls and asks them to vote against the incumbent mayor because the mayor had killed his dog. The story ends with the neighbor losing and the kid going into politics.
I'm guessing the story is fiction but would like to know more. Thanks for any help you can provide.
