Tourism officials are blaming homelessness for a lower-than-anticipated number of visitors to San Francisco. The SF Travel Association reports 25-and-half-million out-of-towners made trips to the city last year. That's actually a slight uptick, but they say there should have been hundreds of thousands more tourists.
Hotel surveys show the number-one complaint is the city's homelessness and related street "hygiene issues." A U.N. Human Rights researcher compares SF's homeless camps to those in the poorest third-world cities.
