Skip to comments.San Diego mayor comes under swift, heavy scrutiny (liberal democRAT)

SAN DIEGO (AP) The week began with news that Mayor Bob Filner's fiancee ended their engagement and, by Friday, San Diego's first Democratic leader in 20 years was desperately trying to stay in office amid sexual harassment allegations made public by some of his closest supporters. He apologized, promised to change and begged voters to let him keep his job.
The rapid-fire developments put heavy scrutiny on the personal foibles of Filner, a feisty liberal who was elected in November after 10 terms in Congress marked perhaps most famously by a 2007 run-in with a United Airlines baggage handler at Dulles International Airport that resulted in him pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of trespassing.

Stone the crows! He looks like a doubly-wide version of the ‘bad guy’ dissappearing-monster from the “Monsters, Inc” cartoony!
He looks just like a ‘rat.
Three of his close supporters said yesterday he should resign.
I think we need to inoculate all pols with a shame booster.
He is a sleazy rat. So sleazy, that even the most liberal of democRATs in San Diego want him gone; they have asked for his resignation. But just like other sleazy liberal democRATs he refuses to go.
I am so sick of these Democrats and their sex needs yech!
Look up “flaming liberal” in the dictionary, and THAT picture will be next to the definition. That is one creepy looking dude.
He is a LIEberal Democrat!
LIEberal Democrats do not resign!
Yall are going to have to impeach or recall him!
Bob Filner was a rude, crude, obnoxious asshole when he was in the US Congress.
He does not have to take pills to be that way he was born to it!
A couple years ago some of his fellow RAT’s complained to the head of the RATs in SAn Diego that Filner was herassing women, but they were told to go away and endorse him..for the good of the party. They did, but now some new people are lodging complaints.
I met the guy socially before the election. He is a creepy ass white RAT. Really a nasty human being..others I know that know him say the same thing. He was the best thing the RATs could come up for the Mayor’s job..which probably now will be forever RAT because of creeping demographics.
The best thing we can hope for is that he hangs on as long as possible and makes it more possible that a good person can replace him..the other RAT possibilities are just as bad policy wise,,
Creepy ass cracker.
Hmmm. Could be, perhaps. Been some time since I saw it (the vid) so I can not say for sure, but the wide-grinning sly expression is something not readily forgotten, no doubt!
I live in a double-wide and we don't have anything like that.
I might add that not all of us in SD are fools. But we have too many people who are liberals and voted for FIlner, knowing his personality and morals..better than an honest Pubbie as far as they were concerned..so now we should punish them by letting the guy stick around. His wings are a bit clipped..
lol! He is the epitome of “Creepy ass cracker”.
After watching this fool’s antics for the past 7 months, I am encouraged that Filner may be on his way out without all of us suffering 4 years of his crap. Next question: Who will run to replace him?
I met him years ago at an event. I spoke with him again last Memorial Day at a ceremony at Fort Rosecrans. He is way creepier in person than in his pics.
