In an act that some have said reeks of symbolism, the tour bus of the Clinton campaign was caught dumping human waste literally on the street, or as some less politically correct commentators have dubbed the incident, “the Hillary campaign caught shitting on main street America.”
As a result, Hillary Clinton’s campaign bus is being investigated after police in Lawrenceville, Georgia, received multiple reports of Hillary’s “Forward Together” tour bus illegally dumped human waste into a storm drain along Grayson Highway on Tuesday morning.

As CBS46 reported, a local businessman took photos of the illegal activity, prompting police to launch a full probe. The photos showed off-colored liquid oozing out of the bus. Hillary Clinton was not at the scene as the bus was in-between campaign stops.
When police arrived at the scene, they were greeted with a foul odor and remnants of used toilet paper scattered across the ground. What the campaign dumped at the scene was so disgusting that a HAZMAT team was called to come in to clean up the mess.
In addition to the local police, the Gwinnett County Stormwater Management and the State Environment Protection Department are participating in the investigation. CBS46 asked the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the party organization working in tandem with the campaign to get Hillary elected, prompting an apology by the DNC.
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.
Adding to the embarrassment Gwinnett County Storm Water is now involved in the investigation as well as the State Environment Protection Department.
