Filner Announces He Will Enter Counseling Clinic; Says Nothing Of Resigning

To say I was pretty disgusted by the KPBS news commentary on the Filner press conference earlier today would be an understatement. The tone of the dialogue between the presenters was almost sympathetic. The poor man has an addiction. He can't help his compulsive sexual behavior. He needs long-term therapy. He is a very difficult position--if he admits his disgusting behavior and apologizes, he potentially faces criminal prosecution for sexual battery. Serial killers have compulsive addictions too--they are addicted to violently murdering people. Should we excuse that behavior and allow one of them to run our city? Bring on the DA and let Filner know that such criminal conduct, whatever the underlying causes are, is not tolerated in our society.
