The mayor of San Marino has stepped down after he was captured on surveillance video tossing a bag of dog waste onto his neighbors walkway earlier this month.
Dennis Kneier announced his immediate resignation Tuesday in a letter to the city and the City Council.
As is well known, early in the evening of Saturday, June 7, I had a lapse of judgment and discarded dog waste on a neighbors walkway, Kneier wrote. It was insensitive, disrespectful and wrong. I have apologized to my neighbor for my action, and I will pay a fine for littering. I can understand why this matter has some questioning my ability to lead the council. I want to assure you that something like this will not happen again.
Philip Lao, Kneiers neighbor, has said that the two men have been embroiled in a feud since 2008 because he disagrees with some of the mayors proposals.
Vice Mayor Eugene Sun will assume mayoral responsibilities through June 27, when the council will select a new mayor and vice mayor.
Kneier will remain a councilman until his term ends in November 2015.
I've heard of a "waste basket" and that a "mind is a terrible thing to waste," but I don't know what "dog waste" is. Can someone help me out???
That wealthy enclave is now commonly referred to as Chan Marino.
Whose dog made the poop?
It's a euphemism for "mayor's brains".
If the neighbor’s he is just putting it where it belongs. I have done that before.
Doberman's on chains at a lawyer convention.
He should have stuck to the flaming bag of dog sh!t on the neighbor’s doorstep trick.
Just out of curiosity - was this perhaps a dim-bulb-crat?
Acknowledge, of course, that any politician by definition is not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer - else they would have chosen a more honorable profession.
He left his office over that? He must be an old style republican or rino. I can’t see a democrat getting that broken up about dog crap. There must have been something else about to drop.
Its the extra bits and scraps you have left over after making a dog.
It's what obama was before he became human waste.
Now, he has withered away to just a piece of it.
