Interim Mayor, Chargers Meet Over Stadium, Convention Center Plans

This is amazing. Filner's body isn't cold yet, and the Chargers have jumped up to get in line for taxpayer dollars. Being that Spanos is a billionaire and can "write a check" to pay for his own stadium, this decision needs a city-wide debate, and should get in line behind the approx $300M needed for repairs for Balboa Park - the City's "treasure" that has been loved-to-death and neglected for many years....and then there's all the potholes, sidewalks, neighborhoods, etc., etc. I believe the Chargers play 6 games/year in San Diego. An owner-paid facelift for Qualcomm Stadium sounds fair and equitable to me!

Filner Mediation Results In Deal; Council Votes Friday

With all the incessant National Enquirer-type media coverage on Filner these past weeks, I cannot understand where all these investigative reporters were when we needed them last year before we put our time and dollars into the election process??

HOWEVER, from now on I'm counting on all the ANTI-FILNER FOLKS to step-up 100% for women's rights - AND investigate the rampant sexual abuse/rapes in the military, demand equal pay for equal work between men and women, guarantee family planning options for ALL women, expose the "good old boy's club" in Washington, DC where Filner obviously got his training!! When I see these results I'll know that San Diegans are truly supporting women's rights.

8th Woman Accuses Filner Of Unwanted Sexual Advances

The KPBS reporting on The Filner Files reminds me of the National Enquirer these days. Where were these women when we were spending our money and our time to get Filner elected Mayor? Obviously this behavior has been going on for many years. I thought he was a bit of a curmudgeon, but had no idea he was such a difficult, abusive boss - yikes!
