She looks more like a fat, drug-addled Anna Nicole Smith trying to look like Marilyn Monroe.

I still kind of shocked that such a thing as grab-ass rehab exists. What does the course entail? Do they parade in nubile, young women in various states of dress, and the addict needs to refrain from ass-grabbery for longer and longer before they pass? Hilarious roleplay skits where Goofus and Gallant show how to and how to not creep out your subordinates?

The whole idea is just really funny to me.

Friday is Filner's last full day at City Hall before entering a residential treatment center for two weeks of intensive therapy to assist him in learning to not treat women disrespectfully.

And you better learn it good Mister, learn to have respect for a woman who dresses up like a notorious whore and shakes her ass for money.

I'm not a fan of Filner, but where the hell were these nine people when this guy was running for office?

In hindsight, there were a lot of rumors about his abusive behavior while in Congress.  Why didn't the media report these things when he was running for office?   Was the search for the photogenic suburban white girl taking up all the brainpower?  Media can do a lot of feigned outrage when it comes to stupid stuff, but it seems like a mayor wannabe who likes to play grab-ass might be something they should report on.

I don't have the link, but there was some reporter talking about this last week.  Claimed that people in the reporting pool all knew or suspected that there was a problem, but no one looked into it or wanted to cover it.

You claimed he was just having an affair.
That is not at all close to what the truth is.
Why don't you find out what the 8 woman claim he did and then report back here and explain how that is just an affair or that it is a "grammar" difference.

Now, if you were defending Sanford's affair that would actually make sense.

Why hasn't Bob Filner been arrested for assault? Unwanted touching, especially what he has done, is a crime. It's not like a he-said, she-said situation that could be dismissed as one disgruntled former employee or similar but multiple women describing very similar behavior. The threat of prosecution could be used to force him to resign.

He doesn't look furious.  He looks pouty.  I thought all Marine officers were supposed to look furious at all times.

Never heard of Filner before, but if he's groping that, he definitely needs to be booted to Dementia Acres.

My guess is that Filner is holding on to extract as many concessions from Democrats as possible before resigning.  At 70 years old, he isn't going to have another go at politics.  He needs to cash in now while he has some leverage (i.e. embarrassing the party by staying in power).

Befuddled: Why hasn't Bob Filner been arrested for assault?


Because the bar to prove in court that a crime has committed is much higher than "she said" (which is basically what it is right now).

Yes, even if there are eight other women that say a similar study.

On another note, this guy might get off (so to speak) on a technicality.  His lawyer's argument is that he didn't get the requisite sexual harassment training course.  Maybe he won't get off, but it might be enough of a burden to the City of San Diego that they don't go after him for lost money, and he can ride off into the political sunset.

As mentioned before, the media was asleep at the switch on this one.

A person can be convicted in court for a crime when there's only two witnesses, the defendant and the accuser, and no other evidence. It all depends on the credibility of the defendant and the accuser. Given that Filner's credibility is zero and has all but admitted to his crimes, he could be convicted.

I lived in SD 20-some-odd years ago.

The Disco Stranger could often be found on the corner of College Ave and El Cajon Blvd  ( I think that's the intersection.)

Any SD residents know if he, or his protege, is still there?  I hope so.  He was great.

(not saying she deserved geting her ass grabbed)

Just saying that.  there's a local print ad for some car company and the ad, from a casual glance, you'd think, "why is Jenifer Aniston shilling for this company?" as the ad is, well, a jenifer aniston lookalike.  get your own damn look, people.

Friday is Filner's last full day at City Hall before entering a residential treatment center for two weeks of intensive therapy to assist him in learning to not treat women disrespectfully.

I think I've seen this one before. Is this the one where Filner's wife and Gloria Ironbox get into a sexeh cat scrap at the end?
