In addition to the hugging and kissing, Mayor Filner (D-San Diego) asked women working for him not to wear panties to work.<quoted text>
I think Weiner should step aside and give it up; he seems to have an addiction. Political wives are put through so much crap and humiliation; like Larry Craigs and Dave Vitters wives. Haven't read all about Filner, sounds like a dirty old man whose probably getting away with this behavior all his life. Should probably resign and go away. People get fired for way less that this in the real world.
There was an instance where a man told a girl in the office that maybe she shouldn't have another donut (she was fat) and she reported him for sexual harrassment. When he got back from vacation he had the choice of resigning or paying an attorney $20,000 to fight it.
Another one got fired for sending off color jokes on a work computer. The corporate world is a rough place, anyone can say anything about a person and you're fired; could be that the other person just wants your job.
Filner also spent many years in Congress. Guess the women there didn't object.
