SAN MARINO, Calif. (AP) – The mayor of a wealthy California town who was caught on camera tossing dog poop onto the walkway of a political opponent is being asked to resign by residents who say he smeared their image.
During a City Council meeting on Wednesday, San Marino residents blasted Mayor Dennis Kneier and called for him to step down, even though he has apologized.
Police cited him for littering, which can carry a fine of up to $1,000.
The mayor of the tidy Los Angeles suburb says he found a bag of dog waste on a parkway Saturday and tossed it onto the front walkway of a home.
The homeowner, Philip Lao, is a political opponent. He recognized the mayor on surveillance video and called police.
