It’s always encouraging to see a politician going into bat for his or her constituents. So it’s hats off to Illinois state councillor Jaime Andrade Jr who’s made it his mission to draw attention to commuters using the local Irving Park railway station and being repeatedly pooed on by a flock of pigeons nestling on a bridge girder overhead.
Such is Andrade’s commitment to bird faeces and the safety of rail commuters’ hair he’s just appeared on CBS Chicago to air his grievances.
Speaking to reporter Lauren Victory, the poo problem wasn’t difficult to spot after the pugnacious pollie got immediately shat on live to air.
“Did I just get – I did, didn’t I? Andrade moaned. “I’ll just have to go clean up. That’s what happens to my constituents. They get shat on all time.”
Check out the bird’s revenge below:
