*Whew, I’m poop’d already.
LOL! Sorry. I’m weak and the opportunity presented itself. I couldn’t resist.
Apparently you can’t throw dog poop just anywhere if you live in the pristine, affluent neighborhood of San Marino.
And you definitely can’t be the Mayor of said city, and be caught on camera doing it.
But if you find that you absolutely must, at the very least, it would probably sit better with the population if you actually had a dog!
As it turns out, the hoopla that dogged (pun intended) one Southern California politician was too much for him to bear and officials now confirm he has stepped down, according to NBC News.
Dennis Kneier has been ID’d as the person who was just walking down the street (probably whistling a peppy tune!) before he broke his stride to toss a bag of doggie doo-do in the private walkway of a home on the 1400 block of Charlton Road last Saturday.
And what’s worse, he was caught on surveillance camera doing it.
Moreover, according to San Marino Police, the bag was tied closed and appeared to have been strategically placed.
In 2010, Forbes Magazine ranked the city of San Marino as the 63rd most expensive area in the United States. Residents of the city were not pleased with the mayor; and went to a city council meeting to ensure their intent to kick him out of office was heard.
Kneier was so humiliated by the barrage of complaints that ensued after his apparently thoughtless act, that he threw in the towel and voluntarily resigned from his mayorial position.
He will stay on the City Council though – at least until his term is up – barring of course, any other poo-flinging acts.
