San Diego Mayor Is Accused of Groping Women; Attorney Will File a Sexual Harassment Claim

Several former supporters of San Diego Mayor Bob Filner today (July 15, 2013) demanded that he resign, since he has been accused of forcibly kissing two constituents and grabbing the buttocks and breast of a staff member, according to the LA Times website.

Filner's behavior toward women is so egregious that women who work for him call him a "dirty old man" and coined the phrases "the Filner headlock" and "the Filner dance" to describe how he isolates women and then makes unwanted advances, attorney Marco Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez said a sexual harassment claim will be filed with city officials. Also, lawsuits are a possibility, he said.

"Bob Filner is tragically unsafe for any women to approach," an angry ex-councilwoman Donna Frye said today at a news conference outside San Diego City Hall.
