But since he runs the city, shouldn't he punish himself for not providing him with the training?

Maybe he's just not in to that sort of thing.

Common sense should dictate that you don't harass people at the workplace. If this douche doesn't have common sense, he has no place being mayor in the first place.

He had an inherently creepy face. I think it's the lips.

I thought you went to rehab for these things?  Is this a new tactic, just do not take the training and you are in the clear?

"Sorry your honor..I never was trained in the 10 commandments and English Common Law, I did not know that shooting that guy was a bad thing..."

I guess for some people, looking like an unqualified douche moran is preferable to taking personal responsibility for being an unqualified douche moran.  Even if you're a mayor.

As a 47 year old American male, I have been through harassment training at least 20 times.  How did this guy make this far into his adult life without being forced to undergo some sort of harassment training?

"Lawyer: San Diego mayor never got harassment training, city may be liable"

Is the lawyer implying that there was something wrong with the mayor's harassment techniques?  Maybe he wasn't using enough foul language?

I'm gonna assume what the lawyer means is that the mayor was never instructed on the proper way to behave, which includes not harassing people.

I don't see how the city would be liable for that.  Maybe the mayor's grade school should be sued for not training him properly, because I can distinctly remember receiving anti-harassment training in kindergarten.

Yes, someone should train that old man how to be a decent person.

He would have to fully admit he did it but didn't know it was wrong. That's a tough needle to thread.

Easy. Remember that the sexual harassment hysteria is only about 20 yrs old and he's been in congress all this time. Do you really think that congresscritters get sexual harassment training?

I get annual refresher training on how to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and assault. Regardless of whether he actually did get such training or not, I can't believe he could possibly think it's okay to shove his tongue down a woman's throat or slide his hand inside her bra without her consent.

I don't know why this is so shocking. Many grown men have problems understanding the simple rule of "keep your hands to yourself," something kids learn in preschool or kindergarten. I don't know what's difficult to understand about it, but apparently there are nuances of "keep your hands to yourself" that people with penises just don't get.

I have to salute your screen name. I am familiar with the reference.

I am glad somebody gets the reference.

Honestly subby, I pretty much get this argument from white folks on Fark on just about everything so yeah, I can believe he'll use the "I had no idea that was wrong" excuse.

Trying to get whatever city you committed sexual harassment in to cover the legal fees must be a part of the public official as sexual abuse handbook. Mike Allen did the same thing in Cincinnati with the same result. The county was disinclined to acquiesce to his request.

Women do it too, they just get away with it.
