In what is being called "the Watergate of California municipality dog-feces incidents," Mayor Dennis Kneier of the town of San Marino resigned last week after being caught on tape throwing a bag of dog feces on his neighbor's lawn. From the Pasadena Star-News:

On June 7, resident Philip Lao found a black bag of dog poop on his side walkway on the 1400 block of Charlton Road. He reported the incident to the San Marino police and showed them a video recording of the incident. Officers later cited the mayor for littering.

Lao, earlier reports indicated, is "a frequent critic of the City Council" who hangs a "No Poop Zone" sign outside his house. In the video, "Kneier and his wife are seen walking several feet before she points at Lao’s walkway and Kneier tosses the bag onto it."
