San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has walked out of his two week program one week early. He went into ‘intensive therapy’ for his ‘hugging’ and ‘groping’ and ‘vulgar invites’ problem. His aides said he went in early. Whether it was one week or two weeks, it was enough for him. He’s cured! Hallelujah, it’s a miracle!
Fourteen women, including two city employees and military veterans, have come forward with significant complaints about his unsolicited groping, kissing, vulgarity.
Senator Barbara Boxer has issued a press release pleading with Filner to resign and really get the help he needs as ‘a private citizen.’ In her release she said, ‘Bob, you must resign because you have betrayed the trust of the women you have victimized, the San Diegans you represent and the people you have worked with throughout your decades in public life.’
She added, ‘Bob, you have already hurt so many people. To avoid hurting your victims and the people of San Diego more than you already have, you should step down immediately.’
Aw, come on Barbara, he apologized AND he completed this extensive therapy program. What more could we expect from one of the ruling class?
Filthy Filner has his own little war on women going on.
People on twitter joked ‘Filner is free, change the locks!’
Funny thing is his Chief of Staff DID change the locks, but not for the right reasons. He changed them for Filner’s protection. Unfortunately, when Filner returns, he will get his keys back, but don’t worry, he’s cured.
“The fact is that I had the locks changed to protect the mayor while he is away,” chief of staff Lee Burdick told the Voice of San Diego in an e-mail. “My concern is/was that if anything was removed while the mayor was away, it could raise all kinds of questions about preservation or spoliation of potential evidence. Because I could not possibly determine everyone who had keys, I believed it was necessary to ensure the integrity of his physical office in his absence. The mayor will be given the keys upon his return.”
Don’t people think that this perv should be out of office? I know we’re not allowed to talk about morals or decide other people’s morals for them in our new humanistic environment but are there no limits?
Filner, for his part, has no intention of resigning.
