SAN MARINO, Calif.—Residents of this wealthy California town say their mayor smeared the town’s image and want him to resign after he was caught on camera tossing dog poop onto the walkway of a political opponent.
During a City Council meeting 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.
Kneier, mayor of San Marino, a tidy Los Angeles suburb, said he found a bag of dog waste Saturday on a parkway 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.
