San Diego tourism ad found among ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner's effects
Ad included coupon for 50% off steak and eggs at The Waffle Spot in Hotel Circle; alleged cop killer may have filled up before heading south.
Tourism Board President: "In hindsight, the ad represents an error in judgment. We were trying to make use of San Diego's proximity to the border, which has represented freedom for so many outlaws, from Joe in Jimi Hendrix's classic 'Hey Joe' to George Clooney in From Dusk Til Dawn."
