Responding to the allegations, critics of the former US Secretary of State have — rightfully — not stopped making poop jokes, terrible puns, and declaring the incident a metaphor, since the news broke.

“A spokeswoman called the fecal matter an ‘honest mistake’? And so was Benghazi, and the videotape, and Hillary’s email…” one commenter lamented on WND. “They’re gonna need a lot of BleachBit,” another noted.
The Democratic National Committee’s “Forward Together” tour bus was caught on camera dumping waste on Grayson Highway in Lawrenceville, Georgia, by an appalled witness, Mike Robins. The business manager sent what he captured to his local CBS affiliate, and told the station that a hazardous waste crew had came to the scene to minimize the sewage left on the road from getting into the drain.

The police told the station that when they arrived, toilet paper littered the road and there was a strong foul odor.

"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," Robins told CBS. "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 bus had just left the Gwinnett County Board of Elections Office, where early voting was beginning.

“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,” their statement to CBS read.
Any penalties handed down will likely be to the charter bus company, and not to the DNC or Clinton campaign. The (fecal) matter is still under investigation, however.
