Opponents say San Diego mayor ‘unsafe’ for women | www.ajc.com
By JULIE WATSON
A prominent one-time supporter of San Diego’s mayor described how the mayor has repeatedly groped women during his short term, saying no female in California’s second-largest city would be safe in his presence.
Despite that, Mayor Bob Filner, 70, made it clear he will not heed the calls for his resignation from former Councilwoman Donna Frye and others within his party, even as they held a news conference to divulge details of allegations they said show a dangerous pattern of abuse by the city’s first Democratic leader in two decades.
… Filner apologized for his behavior Thursday after Frye first went public with the allegations. The mayor said he failed to respect women who work for him and he intimidated them at times. Without going into details, Filner called his behavior wrong and said he needed help. He pleaded with voters for patience.
Since the person accused is a democrat, I’m sure this is the last we’ll hear of this story…
