Funny that Filner, And Weiner did NOTHING compared to Clinton yet they are being demonized.

Look on the bright side.........Filner is a great role model for the children in San Diego. If their Dads had used his Bosses Credit card to fund a personal $30,000 lavish Parisian vacation then didn't tell about it until he was CAUGHT their Dad would be in Prison and the family living in a Shelter.

It's GOOD to be a Democratic politican in oh so Blue California. Mayor Filner just says Screw You all Suckers! and isn't even going to resign.

It also bothers me is he's going to therapy for his problem.

It's not like he has to do that in order to stop.

This is crazy. He should resign since it seems many of the people who elected him want him gone. Serving in public office isn't a right it's a privilege.

In this country, a man is innocent until proven guilty. Disgruntled women is not proof. Anyone can say anything about anyone is not proof. Sexual Harassment is a joke, contrary to popular myth, it's not the same as sexual assault. Harassment should be left up to the individual claiming to be harassed and it's on them to prove it or lose it. They didn't say squat when it happen = dismissed get the hell out of my courtroom.

What they should do to prevent future frivolous nonsense is to declare sexual harassment a non-legal matter and any claim older than 48 hours means squat.

Harassment is a vague term and it can mean different things to different people. Women want to be Man's equal then act like it, outlaw sexual harassment claims or get the hell out of the workplace.

The SD Dem Party admit they knew all about Filners sleazy behaviors before they put him up for Mayor.

What did the Dem Party leaders have against San Diego? Did they think so little of the citizens that they choose to screw the citizens and their own City as some strange Penalty for putting their trust in the Democratic candidate?

The Party sure made Chumps of the citizens of San Diego.

If Clinton and Tiger are good guys now, why not Filner? He is cotton candy compared to those two.
