Authorities are investigating why a Hillary Clinton Democratic Party campaign bus illegally dumped raw sewage in Gwinnett County, GA., on Tuesday morning.
According to the police report, authorities were called to the O’Reilly Auto Parts on Grayson Highway after reports that an RV was dumping its sewage into a storm drain.
WSB-TV reported that the Gwinnett County Fire hazmat units were called to the scene and cleaned up the spill.
“It’s one thing if you get some jackleg coming through in an old RV. But to see a campaign bus with people’s pictures and names all over it stop and do it,” Robins said.
A DNC spokesperson sent Channel 2 Action News 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.”
Lawrenceville police say they reported what they believe is an illegal spill to county authorities.
The State Environmental Protection Division told Channel 2’s Tony Thomas that investigators are looking into the incident and have the police report and pictures.
As of Tuesday evening, no action is being taken against the driver. Authorities say it’s too early to tell what potential fines or penalties might be considered.
