If so, the council’s vote to send it to voters may also have been illegal.Related Link: What’s in a name? Why SDSU West’s title may violate education codesWhy has this come up now? Sherman said it came up in a conversation with a friend who dealt with similar issues at UCSD. His job was to reign in people illegally using the UCSD name.The title of the initiative reads “SDSU West Campus Research Center, Stadium and River Park initiative.”Sherman said using the SDSU initials is a violation of the education code.” … which says nobody without permission shall use San Diego State, San Diego State University, SDSU for any political fundraising,” Sherman said.Kim Kilkenney is with the Friends of San Diego State, which sponsored the initiative. He had just come from an event where he and Sherman separately addressed the Lincoln Club.“The material that he passed out has San Diego State’s logo and San Diego State’s name on political material. Are we suggesting this is illegal? No, because it’s a silly issue,” Kilkenney said.Sherman also said the initiative sponsors are using the name to raise funds, and that may be a campaign violation. He sent a letter to the city attorney asking for a legal opinion.He said the city, those who circulated the petition, and those who donated funds may be subject to fines under government codes.Related Link: Former city attorney talks about SDSU West initiative“It says anybody who is guilty of this is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable up to a $1,000 fine, so does that mean everybody who signed is guilty of a misdemeanor anybody who has donated?” Sherman asked.“Our attorneys have looked at his letter and have concluded that it’s a non-issue. … Our attorneys are comfortable with the title and the name of our steering committee,” Kilkenney said. “It’s a distraction. He’d rather attack our campaign on silly issues than talk about the merits, and the merits are how best to use that site.”Sherman goes on to say using the SDSU initiatives is misleading to voters because it implies it’s a San Diego State initiative, not a citizens initiative.Kilkenney said this is of no concern to voters.“What they’re concerned about is how the city of San Diego disposes of one of its most valuable assets,” he said.Then why not simply remove the SDSU name from the title?“Our initiative is filed. It’s a done deal, so that’s not an option,” Kilkenney said. Is the SDSU West initiative illegal?

Random Toe-tally related stories ‘Yeti’ footprints seen by Indian Army raise ridiculous questions This might be the worst Bigfoot sighting video of all time 1 Yetis and UFOs and sea monsters, oh my! (pictures) Comment On Wednesday, the FBI Records Vault Twitter account brought our attention to an intriguing set of documents involving the agency’s role in a Bigfoot investigation in 1976 and 1977. The collection spans 22 pages of correspondence and newspaper clippings starting with a letter the FBI sent in response to Peter Byrne, director of The Bigfoot Information Center in Oregon. The New York Times profiled Byrne’s work in 1976. He’s a former professional hunter who took up the futile cause of trying to prove Bigfoot is real.fbihairsampleEnlarge ImageThe FBI examined this mysterious hair sample. FBI Byrne asked the FBI to analyze a sample consisting of “15 unidentified hairs and tissue.” Byrne wrote he thought the hairs “may be of importance.” The documents reveal a history of Bigfoot-related letters and memos leading up to the FBI Laboratory agreeing to examine the mystery hair. After a battery of tests and comparisons, the FBI reached a definite conclusion. It was no Bigfoot. The sample came from a creature in the deer family.This no doubt came as a disappointment to Byrne, who’s known for his book The Hunt for Bigfoot. Byrne remains a notable and controversial figure among Bigfoot aficionados. His persistence with the FBI back in the ’70s has gifted us a very entertaining FBI Vault file to enjoy, but we’re still waiting on some hard evidence that shows Bigfoot isn’t just a fantasy. Share your voice In the ’70s, G-men untangled a hairy case. Now you can comb through the archives and brush up on the details. Feargus Cooney/Getty Images Back in the days of bell bottoms, the FBI was willing to entertain the notion that Bigfoot, the mythical giant furry humanoid, might be more than a flight of fancy. The FBI Records Vault is an online Freedom of Information Act Library stocked with thousands of scanned documents covering fascinating and bizarre topics ranging from the Roswell UFO incident to a background investigation of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

In the comments section, many asked why the video was even uploaded on Facebook since it could have dire consequences for the man, which turned out to be true.Some comments even asked why the people taking the video weren’t terminated and only the man since the others were cheering him and egging him on.One user wrote, “How stupid can people be? I hope they all get fired, nasty stupid kids.”Another user, Andrea Pasley wrote, “Why would you do that…get in or film…why did you film it?…why did you post it?…I am just lost for words.”Wendy’s released a statement on Wednesday afternoon terming the incident as ‘unacceptable’. According to Northwest Florida Daily News, the statement read, “We are taking this incident seriously and it is obviously totally unacceptable. This was a prank by a person who no longer works at this restaurant, and who clearly did not use good judgment. We are taking this opportunity to reinforce our very strict quality procedures with our restaurant team.”last_img read more
