  1. How much has B of A and its employees donated to Goldsmith's campaigns ?

  2. A civil protest that affects a business is legal. How is this different ?

  3. The criminal Defendant here is a supporter of Mayor Filner ? To Goldsmith, that is now a crime ?

  4. The Court should dismiss the case, and seriously sanction Goldsmith, his office, and all the licensed professionals in the decision-making process, including the jerk-off from B of A.

  5. Additional sanctions should be imposed for Goldsmith's toupee.

  6. The Mayor should direct that all city funds on deposit at B of A be moved to other Banks.

DavidnPB, I searched Goldsmith's disclosures and did not find any specifically from Bank of America. That said, he raised a lot of cash for a candidate without an opponent.

The civil protest/free speech is what Tosdal and Olson are claiming.

That and many of your other questions are addressed in the upcoming Cover...that is besides #5!


He chalks the line: City Attorney prosecutes man for writing anti-bank slogans in water soluble chalk

Man faces 13 years and $13,000 if convicted of vandalism with sidewalk chalk.

Jan Goldsmith's job as City Attorney is to represent the City of San Diego. In addition, it appears as if ...

Or they could just stop defrauding their employees, investors, account holders, Uncle Sam and the taxpayers.

Thank you Dorian! If your readers think that my case is an unconstitutional waste of limited municipal resources they should not be shy about letting Jan know that.

People vs. Olson is case #M153987

Jan Goldsmith can be reached at 619-236-6220 or [email protected]

thanks, Jeff

Jeff_O: make sure your attorney knows that BofA at 3101 University already has privatized cleanup services at its command and has paid for them:

BofA, parcel # 4531611500, paid $825 into the North Park Maintenance Assessment District last year (it goes up to $838 this year).

BofA at this location also pays the North Park Business Improvement District, between $125 and $250 per year.

Both of these privatized taxes include graffiti cleanup by a privately contracted firm. The documents evidencing these charges to the BofA property are online on the City's webpages and are publicly available. The MAD tax can also be seen in the line item charges on the County Tax website, using the parcel number.

I wouldn't want to put my money in a bank run by people with so little business sense that they pay double for services...but we all know that the out-of-area private cleaning service was called to make a legal case against you, not to solve the problem of chalk on the sidewalk.

BofA could have done what everyone can do: call Urban Corps to remove the "graffiti" from the PROW.

As Urban Corps states on their webpage at

"The graffiti department’s corpsmembers operate 6-days a week from a 24-hour hotline and self-generating visuals. Urban Corps partners with the City of San Diego, the San Diego Unified Port District, and the Cities of Chula Vista and Escondido to remove graffiti."

BofA could have had free (taxpayer-funded) removal by calling the Urban Corps hot line: (800) 829-6884

You've done it again, BSP. Another important fact that I completely missed. I didn't think about the MAD/BID and the fact that this could have been removed without the bank having to call in a professional cleaning crew to wash off the chalk. Thanks for pointing this out. --dh

Maybe Mr. Ex-cop Darell Freeman-This-Is-My-Brother-Darell and this is my other brother Darell will show up in court in his Crocodile Dundee hat. I wondered why the SDPD Gang Unit was so receptive to him, ... the brotherhood lives. See Darell's Linked In account documenting his career as a cop and his religious eduction at Vanguard University

Last year Forbes ranked Vanguard #395 out of 397 colleges. They recently faced an accreditation crisis after it was reviled that their geology department was teaching that the earth is 5,000 years old and dinosaur bones were buried by Satan to test our faith. Also- Mr. Freeman is a veteran of the Costa Mesa Police Department in Orange County, CA. That particular department has a long history of corruption. "Costa Mesa is known for bad cops and horrific government on it's own, among the most aggressive and constitutionally abusive I ever encountered." - Brian Moore, former Costa Mesa resident

And the Hoover's account of the BofA history "Welcome to the machine" is a good resource. Please feel free, everyone, to contact Chairman Charles O. (Chad) Holliday Jr., President, CEO, and Director Brian T. Moynihan, and Co-COO David C. Darnell at Bank of America Corporation 100 N. Tryon St. Charlotte, NC 28255

with your thoughts on our local issue.

5.Additional sanctions should be imposed for Goldsmith's toupee.

OK, I just peed myself this one was so funny !!!!!


monaghan June 24, 2013 @ 9:57 p.m.

What a riot. B of A strikes again and Goldsmith looks like the fool that he is. Will somebody please get the name of that chalk-wielding child in the photo and send him to Juvey? And of course, get restitution from the parents.
