DeSantis Makes California Poop Map Go Viral… Again

During last Thursday night’s debate Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis confronted California Governor Gavin Newsom with a picture of a San Francisco Poop Map — showing the location of the 132,000 reports of human waste in the public way.

Where did the map come from? The auditors working for our friends at , of course!

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words (or in this case 132,000 turds) and as Adam Andrzejewski, OpenTheBooks CEO/Founder explained in a post to the organization’s Substack, the original map was launched in 2019 by plotting nearly 120,000 case reports of human feces on city streets during the period 2011 through 2019.

And yes, they did use brown pins that showed the entire city was covered.

When originally published at Forbes, the poop map trended on national Twitter and was showcased on the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal.

After the debate the Open the Books auditors updated the numbers in real time. Sadly, they found an additional 125,506 case reports just since 2020. Their data source is the open records portal and 311 call information posted online by the city itself.

Open the Books found, unfortunately, reports of human waste in the public way have spiked to all-time new highs. Despite the national attention, the San Francisco situation is degrading further. It’s getting worse, not better.

By any measure, this is a human health catastrophe observed Mr. Andrzejewski.


In 2019, there were 30,996 calls to the city’s 311 non-emergency hotline which dwarfed the 20,668 calls in 2017 or the 5,547 calls during 2011.

In 2023, with only one month to go, the reports are trending to an all-time high of 35,520.

Previously, the all-time high was last year with a call report count of 34,609 – up more than six times the 2011 count.

Now, the new Open the Books new interactive map plots roughly 270,000 cases of human poop on the streets of San Francisco since 2011.

When DeSantis held up a picture of the San Francisco poop map in response to questions regarding the homeless crisis in San Francisco many commentators said it was one of the top moments of the debate – and we have Adam Andrzejewski and his team at OpenTheBooks to thank for it.

Is it true that the DeSantis-Newsom debate on Hannity's show was sponsored by U-Haul?

How long did it take for Governor Gavin "Hairdo" Gruesome's Potemkin Village to return to normal?

I think the Babylon Bee started the rumour that U-Haul sponsored the debate, but ya gotta love the idea 🤣
