While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is consumed with impeaching President Donald Trump, her congressional competitor John Dennis has tried to force her to refocus on public defecation issue in her district.

John Dennis, chairman of San Francisco Republican Party, on the weekend posted a photo showing a man apparently going to the bathroom in aisle of San Francisco Safeway as a message to mock the Democratic speaker.

“Just got this photo. A homeless man defecating in our local Safeway,” Dennis wrote in a tweet on Sunday, Dec. 15, after saying, “Thank you Nancy Pelosi.”

Dennis, who is running to challenge Pelosi, said he “publicly warned in 2018 that if we let people violate our streets the homeless problem would get worse.”

Public defecation is a well-known problem in San Francisco, a district where Pelosi represents, according to BizPacReview.

Suggesting a solution to the public defecation issue, Dennis tweeted, “The answer: Arrest, then offer a choice. Jail or rehab.”

Journalist Deborah Kan identified the store as a Safeway on Marina Blvd., in San Francisco and tagged Democratic Mayor London Breed and some local media outlets. She questioned, “Why is this okay?”

“Ask Nancy Pelosi,” Kambree Kawahine Koa – a political news contributor, replied to Kan.

The incident came as Pelosi is busy working to impeach President Donald Trump. The Democrat-controlled House is expected to hold a vote on two articles of impeachment against the president on Wednesday, Dec. 18.

According to San Francisco Chronicle, the phone rings about 65 times a day to report piles of human feces on streets and sidewalks, totaling 14,597 calls from Jan. 1 to Aug. 13.

Reports of human feces sightings increased dramatically from 5,547 in 2011 to 28,084 in 2018, data from the San Francisco Department of Public Works shows.

Mayor Breed has declared human feces on sidewalks as “a huge problem,” and said one solution is to better educate the homeless to “clean up after themselves,” according to NBC Bay Area.

But the bigger problem is the out of control homeless population in many Democrat-run cities, as liberals have yet to figure out the more you subsidize a certain behavior, the more you encourage it, according to BizPacReview.
