Hey there. Local news of a stripe. San Diego’s mayor is a founder of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and a slimy sort.
Thursday morning three staunch supporters of Mayor Bob Filner are asking for him to resign after claims Filner sexually harassed multiple women, including some in his office . .
“I cannot not act,” [councilwoman Donna] Frye said. “There are standards that need to be upheld in our community.”
She went onto say that we need to be sure that we are held accountable for our actions. “We need to hold him accountable,” Frye said between tears.
As you might suspect the 70 year-old Democratic Mayor Bob hasn’t commented upon the allegations. Err wait.
SAN DIEGO — Facing calls for his resignation amid sex harassment claims, San Diego Mayor Bob Filner issued an apology Thursday for his treatment of women and vowed to change his behavior, admitting “I need help.”
Filner indicated he will not resign but that “I have reached into my heart and soul and realize I must and will change my behavior.” He said he and his staff will take the sexual harassment training offered by the city.
He and his staff will take the training? His staff, and their staff, are the victims. It’s one thing to whisper ethnic jokes to your pals, it’s another thing to attack people.
