Man Who Delivered Horse Manure to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is an L.A. County Employee

Authorities say the man who sent a box of horse manure to the home of U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is a clinical psychologist employed by Los Angeles County’s Department of Mental Health.

Dr. Robert Strong admitted to the prank that captured national attention and prompted a precautionary bomb squad response outside Mnuchin’s Bel Air home.

"I was talking to a friend about the tax bill and we were both complaining about how it's total horse s***," Dr. Strong said. "And one of our friends who happens to be there owns horses."

Strong picked the manure up at the ranch, gift wrapped it in Christmas wrapping paper, and dropped it off on Mnuchin’s doorstep with a note.

"Dear Mr. Mnuchin & Trump, we, the American people, are returning the 'gift' of the Christmas tax bill. Because it's complete and utter horses***."
