Just when you thought this election year couldn’t get any stranger, pictures have surfaced of a DNC campaign bus painted with the Hillary Clinton slogan of “stronger together” dumping raw human waste in the middle of a street in a residential area in Georgia.
After a witness spotted this incident he became enraged by the blatant disregard for the residents or environment, he snapped some photos and reported the action to the local authorities. A hazmat team arrived to clean up the waste and prevent more of it from entering the street’s storm drain. Even the EPA was called in to investigate this situation of illegal human waste dumping.
Although the jokes that can be made are endless for this scenario, it really shows the arrogance and disregard of whoever was managing this Democrat campaign bus. There are specific actions to dispose of human waste from porta-potties or buses, but apparently this bus felt they could dump their waste wherever they felt like it. Thankfully a vigilant resident took pictures of the incident and reported it.
I am willing to bet anything that if this was a Donald Trump campaign bus with the slogan “Make America Great Again” on it, the mainstream media would have blanket coverage with special reports on this illegal dumping for the rest of this election. The late night talk shows would be cracking jokes and performing skits about it, but since it’s a Hillary Clinton related bus, you won’t see it anywhere except on the Internet.
These pictures are a personification of what will happen if Hillary Clinton is elected president…her entire campaign will be taking a dump on America whenever they feel like it.
LAWRENCEVILLE, GA (CBS46) –
Georgia’s Environmental Protection Division is investigating after a witness spotted a Democratic National Committee tour bus apparently dumping human waste into a storm drain.
Lawrenceville police are also investigating the claim which surfaced on Tuesday, a photo shown to us by a CBS46 viewer showed a Democratic National Committee tour bus apparently making the dump between campaign stops.
CBS46 viewer Mike Robins, manager of a nearby business, took several photos of the tour bus dumping waste into the storm drain. In the pictures, a liquid can be seen coming from the bottom of the bus.
According to Robins, a hazardous materials crew responded to the location and collected the waste to keep more of it from entering the storm drain.
“I don’t care who you are. I don’t care if you’re Hillary Clinton. I don’t care if you’re Donald Trump. I don’t care who you are, you don’t throw human waste down a storm drain,” said Robins. “Wastewater just dumping all out in the street, poured out in the storm drain, and at this time I’ve got my cell phone out and I’m taking pictures because I don’t care who you are. That’s just wrong.”
The incident happened on Grayson Highway Tuesday morning after the bus left a campaign stop near the Gwinnett County Board of Elections Office where hundreds of voters were lined up to take part in early voting.
Police say when officers arrived on the scene, toilet paper was scattered on the roadway near the storm drain, and there was a foul smell.

CBS46 reached out to the DNC, which issued the following statement:
This was an honest mistake and we apologize to the Lawrenceville community for any harm we may have caused. We were unaware of any possible violations and have already taken corrective action with the charter bus company to prevent this from happening again. Furthermore, the DNC will work with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, as well as local and state officials to determine the best course of corrective action.
The GA Environmental Protection Division said their investigator responded to the scene Wednesday morning, and said they’re speaking with representatives from the charter company.
They’ll then determine what penalties will be handed down, most likely to the charter company.
