This is what Prop 8 was about, people! Now straight men are having to prove their heterosexuality to such lengths that all straight politicians will be hounded out of office and a gay autocracy will fill the power vacuum. Thanks Kennedy.

When Gay Marriage is legal, only straight outlaws will sexually harass their constituents.

I've heard that his first 2 chiefs of staff have resigned.. and the new 3rd one is a woman, which is awkward, now that he's no longer allowed to be alone with a woman.

This guy waited way too long for his midlife crisis.

He's also so busy defending himself that they've had to hire a city manager to actually do his job. It's sad and ridiculous.

D. Throw him out. I might side with him politically but this is someone who should not hold power. Consensual? Don't care. Nonconsensual? Get rid of him.

I listened to the Maddow podcast this morning, and she's saying that between him and Gov. McDonnell of Virginia, both refusing to resign, that they're really dragging down the respect of their offices.  And she wonders what sort of people will want to run for such offices in the future, once the offices of governor or mayor are as respected as child molesters.

Yeah she's been ripping this guy apart all week.

Doesn't matter what party he belongs to, he's a scumbag who can't control himself. It's ridiculous that San Diego has to spend money to babysit him because he can't handle being alone with a woman.

So if you're a woman, you aren't allowed to meet with the mayor unless you have a chaperone?

How is trying to kiss a woman is assault? Harassment I'll give ya, but I can't see this as assault unless he forcibly held her in place and kissed her

""He tried to move my face towards his to kiss me on the mouth," Rose told KPBS. "

Not forcible enough for you?

Not with that description. Gentle fingers on her chin could consitute trying to move her face towards his.

I want to have hot lesbian sex with that woman. I've got such a crush.

Intent is an essential element of assault. In tort law, it can be specific intent-if the assailant intends to cause the apprehension of harmful or offensive contact in the victim-or general intent-if he or she intends to do the act that causes such apprehension. In addition, the intent element is satisfied if it is substantially certain, to a reasonable person, that the act will cause the result.

And guess what, moron. I don't care how effing gentle your fingers are, you don't get to touch me in an attempt to physically compel me to do something I don't want to do.

I'd agree, but I'm a guy, and so not her type.

Hence the podcast. Maddow blows.

Is there a serious recall effort? All I'm seeing is Facebook groups and news stories about a recall rally that barely anyone showed up to.

I knew it, Muslims took over.  They're using a backhanded way to sneak Sharia law in.

I don't think a recall could really get rolling until there's contenders to replace him.

Por que tan serioso: Fillner still better than DiMaio


came in to say that, just his politics.
not excusing his actions, obviously the guy's a pig & needs a good slut shaming.

The media is trying to make it into a HUGE story, but I'm guessing Filner's camp is grateful for big stories like the Royal Baby and the Spanish rail tragedy taking a little focus off of him.

The guy is a slime ball, but it's hard to take either side when people wait to come forward with these claims and then hire Gloria Allred.

It is pretty weird that this is only coming out after he got elected. You'd think a guy with a serious problem like, you know,  sexually harassing people would have been weeded out during the campaign.

2 things:

1) He was in DC before, and stuff like that is less likely to come out when it's happening 3000 miles away
2) There *was* the broughaha over his treatment of a baggage handler, so we already knew that he was a dick.

Personally, I knew he was farked when I found out that Marco Gonzales was representing some of the victims.

/sad to say that I supported his nomination at the County Democratic Central Committee.

Makes you wonder what legislative abortions he had to support in Congress to keep it under wraps.

That's unpossible! I've been infromed that Maddow only bashes good, God-fearing Republicans and conservatives. She'd NEVER attack a Democrat!

The San Diego Democratic committee or whatever the proper term is, was warned repeatedly by people from DC that the guy was a douchebag to women and they should NOT support him.  They wanted a "name" candidate, so they decided to avert their eyes and ears and backed him up.

So the local party is incompetent too. Awesome. /s

Would I be taking a wide stance to say that we can say all democrats like to put unwilling women in headlocks and jam their tongues down their throats?
