Former Filner Supporters Provide Details Of Sexual Harassment Allegations, But Not Identities Of Women

let the recall process begin at the same time - Filthner is asking for more pressure - Donna Frye et al should attack on all fronts - he is acting like a narcissist - at first admitting guilt - when he thought it would serve him - then his innocence - now he wants to attack his accusers - narcissists like to crush their enemies, they can be delusional, starting to believe that they haven't done anything wrong and they are in fact being persecuted - that video whereby he admits guilt is going to end up costing the city money -- the new interim CEO is extra money - get this guy out of there- RECALL FILTHNER

Filner: 'A Fair, Independent Investigation Will Support My Innocence'

hmmm- on one hand he admits he has acted inappropriately towards women, that he needs professional help and sexual harassment training -- on the other hand he thinks he is innocent ??? hmmm again, I smell narcissism, deeply ingrained

maybe he is trying to split hairs in terms of what his definition of sexual harassment is? it sounds like he has created a hostile work environment and that any reasonable woman would determine such.

I hope Marco, Frye & Briggs quickly unleash whatever they have to stave off protracted political theater

Stormy Weather For San Diego Mayor

Filner seems to be self admitting to being a serial sexual harasser after he was apparently confronted with evidence by Marco, Frye, Briggs et al - serial sexual harassment would normally be a fire-able offense for any other city agent - this case seems worse because the higher up the chain, the more people are intimidated, the more they feel they cant go to HR etc- so the higher in the chain the greater the accountability- I am a Dem and I want him out - The Mayors Office should be a safe place for anyones daughter to work - Filner in self admitting, likely knows what evidence is stacked up against him he is just now trying to control the outcome - would other self admitting serial harassers be able to dodge firing by saying I will go to counseling and training or would that option only be reserved for less serious or one time offenses? sexual harassment is about abuse of power - he seems to demonstrate this on other fronts, showing a general narcissism, which is usually an engrained personality trait - I hope Marco et al don't hold back whatever evidence they have for too long and just get this over with.

Supporters Ask Filner To Resign Over Sexual Harassment Claims

of course Filner is innocent until proven guilty or he self admits -- but what is interesting here to me, maybe ironic, is the power play being played. I am not talking about political power per se, but power dynamics in general - i infer that the Mayor has been confronted with various types of direct evidence, maybe emails, & corroborating testimonies; he has been afforded the opportunity to step down and or self admit in order to save face, stave off details - Marco, Frye & Briggs have constructed a power dynamic over him whereby he must comply with what they want, his resignation, or an imagined worst case scenario will occur; embarrassing details etc Classic harassers set up such dynamics in order to extract sexual behaviors from people they hold power over, and those recipients feel like they may lose their jobs, general favor if they don't comply - now Filner is on the short end of the stick. these lawyers have power over him with the information they have and he knows they have, and they want him to comply. This could be karma - i cant imagine this power play being played by Marco, Frye & Briggs without having their ducks lined up - and i believe that they are acting altruistically because all of their political interests certainly point the other way.
