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.
He is the face of the democrat party
And a “Creepy ass cracker”.
Photoshop you’re drunk.
The City Charter requires the City Council to hold a special election within 90 days of a resignation unless another election is already scheduled within 180 days. A runoff could be required if no candidate wins a majority vote.
In the interim, Council President Todd Gloria would temporarily take over the post, but his powers would be limited.
San Diego. There it is. Sad days, will never describe the agony, ahead.
If anyone is drunk it is you.
That pic is not Photoshopped. It is, in fact, the same pic Filner has on his official Mayor of San Diego webpage.
Yup. The first democRAT mayor San Diego has had in 20 years has proven himself to be a complete disaster in just 7 short months.
He’s been a Communist since his “university” days, too.
NO, he's NOT.
I can’t begin to tell you how much I loathe Filner.
If the photo of him was photoshopped it is photoshopped on his official mayoral webpage also. But we know it's not, he is just one creepy looking man. I'm no woman but I have to believe his creepy looks made his sexual assault victims detest the incidents even more.
Make that a sleazy Red rat. His parents were organizers for the Communist Party USA in Pennsylvania. He’s a “Red Diaper Baby” which explains his politics and personal behavior.
See his file at www.keywiki.org, Search for him under his name, and then you’ll understand
He’s not a “cracker!” He’s a Yankee! Born in Pittsburg, graduated FRom Cornell.
And, as already stated, he is an obnoxious asshole!
...That you have seen (-recently?).
Fetal Alcohol Syndrom. Typical of politicians and actors. They are wired for it from the womb.
The thought of him ousted is the best news ever.
It seems everyone wants him gone.
No, he was eddykated in the East = Cornell, IIRC.
I’ve always despised him. ALWAYS!
I meant he taught at SDSU. Over a decade IIRC.
OH, well, I don’t know about THAT!
Yeah, he used that as a stepping stone to an elected position on the San Diego school district. From there to congress.
Do I really have to explain the photoshop you’re drunk meme?

I guess so because I have no idea what you are talking about nor do I understand why you would think I would.
Perfect oppertunity for the GOP to use the War on Women on the Democrats
The Democrat voters are shrugging.
Just keep the “free stuff” coming and the Democrat moocher base could care less how corrupt and creepy their man is.
If they’re surprised at anything, it’s that the creep is probably not a faggot.
Bob wouldn't be the first sitting mayor replaced mid-term in San Diego, not even the first this century.
He needs to go. As a native San Diegan, it's still shocking to me he was elected.
They’re not that smart.
He's a flat out communist and has been raised one from birth!
I think the only reason he won the election is because his republican opponent is queer!
