The saga of former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is disgusting. I feel like I need to take a shower after writing about it.
Filner was accused (and certainly guilty) of sexually harassing multiple women, many of whom were seeking his counsel as mayor, and some of whom had the misfortune to cross paths with him in social situations.
He stayed in office for far too long after the accusations started flooding out. Democrats hope they can get away with such things in the post-Clinton era. Just ask Anthony Weiner who, although he didn't win, stubbornly refused to get out of the NYC mayoral race.
According to the Associated Press, Filner "pleaded guilty in October to one felony and two misdemeanors for placing a woman in a headlock, kissing another woman and grabbing the buttocks of a third."
