The mayor of San Marino, California has resigned after being caught on surveillance video tossing a small bag of dog poop into a neighbor's yard.

From the Los Angeles Times:

Dennis Kneier announced his resignation in a letter addressed to fellow City Council members, saying that the June 7 incident was “a lapse in judgment” and has caused embarrassment.

“I can understand why this matter has some questioning my ability to lead the council,” he wrote. “I want to assure you that something like this will not happen again. At the same time, these events continue to be embarrassing to me, and to the city. Because of this, I have decided to step down as mayor.”
