The DNC apologized in a statement, calling it “an honest mistake.” A representative later said the sewage container was full and the driver was concerned about the contents leaking.

Gwinnett County fire hazmat crews cleaned up the spill, which included a large amount of drying toilet paper on the roadway. Georgia’s Environmental Protection Division is investigating.
