City Council Won't Pay Filner's Legal Fees

Is the city still paying for his spa vacation . . . I mean behavior rehab?

8th Woman Accuses Filner Of Unwanted Sexual Advances

. . . has to work for them AND the attention has to be unwanted. The Filner complaints definitely have "unwanted" element going for them, and no one wants this kreeper running our city, but they're not technically incidents of sexual harassment.

8th Woman Accuses Filner Of Unwanted Sexual Advances

Wow does Filner have a type. Let's be clear, though, this is yet another case of NOT quid pro quo sexual harassment.

Feinstein Calls On Filner To Resign

Yaaawn, not to engage the punctuation impaired in discussion, but Feinstein ran California's most important city for 11 years. Filner's run California's fourth most important city for 6 months.

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

Which "hyper-feminists" would that be Missionaccomplished? The ones who campaigned and voted for him because they believed in his work? The same ones who probably also campaigned for and voted for our male president? Or are you the rare observer of a forest-dwelling coven who devote their lives to avoiding all men, joining civilized society only when a chance to unseat a man in power presents itself? Could you also clarify for me whether Todd Gloria is a "hyper-feminist" whose only issue with Filner is that he's a man?

San Diego Democrats Call For Filner To Resign

CA-DEF:
"I'm simply showing that Democrats are just as bad. They just do it with a smile."

At least they don't do it while waving a bible with their other hand.

Third Woman Comes Forward In Filner Harassment Scandal

Surfdude99 Thank you for that. I was all prepared for national humiliation when we finally got a blurb in the NY Times and brief mention on Colbert, but Weiner's campaign stole the show and no one outside SD even remembers this minor scandal is taking place. Thanks NYC!! You guys rock.

Third Woman Comes Forward In Filner Harassment Scandal

Wow, this discussion thread has really taken on all the sophistication of a Rush Limbaugh fan fest. Let's see, we've made racial slurs, insulted feminists, and actually employed Limbaugh-coined non-words, rather than discussing the actual topic at hand. KPBS, are you even moderating this thread?

Third Woman Comes Forward In Filner Harassment Scandal

CA Def - numerous members of the democratic party have called for Filner's resignation, including congresswoman Davis. The real question is what is Filner waiting for. I was an advocate for due process until the first accuser came forward. Now it's time for Filner to acknowledge that he cannot provide adequate leadership to this city any longer as his very presence is too divisive. If he refuses to resign and forces the people of San Diego into an expensive recall process, he may very well cost the democrats the mayor's office.

Do the right thing for our city, Bob, and resign. Did Gloria & Frye know about your behavior prior to the election and support you anyway with an intent to force your resignation - to their own political benefit - several months in? Possibly, but since you're looking pretty guilty at this point, their political coup is the lesser of the evils.

Filner's New Hire: Republican Coup Or Savvy Political Move?

Peking Duck has said it all:

"Filner, Gloria, Frye, Gonzales, Briggs - all political incompetents I am quickly coming to find out. Shame on you ALL - we were finally seeing real change in this city and all I you have screwed it up in one way or another. ALL of you have embarrassed San Diego on the national stage. Why don't you idiots just take the keys to the city, put them in a covered silver platter, and white glove deliver them over to Manchester."

We had a chance, ever so brief, to join the sophisticated coastal cities . . . to attract progressives, intellectuals, and innovators to our fair community, and now it seems like this posse of pseudo-progressives has set San Diego back ten years.
