Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns has had its full share of embezzlers, drunks and child molesters, and now we can add a serial sexual harasser to the MAIG Wall of Shame.
A former top spokeswoman for San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has sued him and the city for sexual harassment, detailing a creepy litany of mayoral abuses.
Standing along celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, the indispensable accessory for any wronged woman, Irene McCormack Jackson listed multiple instances of Filner horndoggery, including a suggestion that she would work better without panties and repeated demands for kisses. When she attempted to throw him out of her office, the 70-year-old Filner responded that he was the mayor, and “You cannot kick me out…I can go anywhere I want, any time I want.”
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that “Filner has been under siege since July 10 when three former political allies came forward on behalf of several anonymous women who said they had been sexually harassed by the mayor.” The accusations included unwanted kisses, groping and derogatory comments.
“In the wake of the allegations, the city has implemented a policy that Filner isn’t allowed to meet with women alone on city property, a rule that will be enforced by his security detail and new chief of staff.”
You can see why a guy like that probably is not wild about the idea of concealed carry. For women at least.
