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.
