Councilwoman Myrtle Cole Declines To Ask Filner To Resign

"As a woman, I am deeply saddened by the allegations against him,..."

As a woman??? Hmmm. Think now.

Why would Cole (or Emerald) not take a stronger stand against Filner on behalf of her woman constituents? Where is her "womanly support" for the 7 women who decided to come forward? What do they have to gain - or lose? Does it not matter to them that they are elected city officials who are women and are NOT ALLOWED TO BE ALONE WITH THE MAYOR IN THE SAME ROOM! Is it only party affiliation that keeps these two elected officials not calling for Filner to step down? These two councilpersons are acting seriously counter-intuitive. Time for San Diegans to do the Filner dance on city hall with 102,000 registered voters when Filner returns from his two-week therapy vacation.

City Of San Diego's Recall Process May Be Unconstitutional

There is another option. I propose that on the day Filner returns to city hall after his two-week paid therapy vacation that every registered voter in San Diego, locked arm-in-arm, make a human wall around city hall to prevent his return to office for that day. If 102,000 of us were to show a little peaceful civil disobedience against this rascal, we'd be worthy of being America's Finest City again. At best, we're now just America's Filner City.
