Then he ruined it by making a honking gesture/sound.

Having moved to San Diego from Minnesota a year ago - I am completely perplexed how this guy got elected and even more perplexed on how he was able to stay on so long before resigning.

/California politics is pretty fark'd up

And the last thing he did in office was a dickbag move involving a Jack In The Box restaurant.

HJe will probably sue to get his pay for the rest of the term and pay for his legal bills too.

Because the media was too hung up on other things than reporting things they already knew about Filner's temper and other behaviors.   No they shiat all over themselves to go into detail on what happened.

Yet, Filner's opponent has rumors abound about him pulling a George Michael and that gets spread all over the place.  So to speak.

Both are idiots, but the media stinks even more.

Mainly because Carl DeMaio ran on a platform of "screw workers"

I didn't hear about that during the election, and I generally pay attention to things.

I'm having a hard time buying that since the local newspaper is run by conservative wingnuts.  How could this not of come out earlier?

/then again I wasn't paying too much to the mayoral election as I was voting absentee back in Minnesota (mainly to help stop the anti-gay marriage and idiotic voter id amendments).

Lovely.

Next time anyone here feels like talking shiat about redditors or 4channers, just remember the day that fark put a local sex scandal on the main page while the president was announcing the beginning of a war.

Can we get Filner, Weiner and Spitzer in a room to duke it our for supreme creep in office? Three go in and only one comes out, Sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY!

Unions.  DeMaio was running on a platform of reining in the unions.  The unions didn't like that so they went all in with a jerk.  Note how the unions never did call on Filner to resign.

The allegations of DeMaio jerking off in the bathroom are the unions trying to discredit him by way of another sleazebag named Hueso.

"How dare you do ____________ while ________________ is going on." Lighten up, every media outlet doesn't have to handle every story you deem essential. Anyone interested has but to go to Google News and find an endless series of stories about Syria. Sometimes it's good to take a break, or even ignore something if that's your bent. The world will keep turning.

Yeah, well, not every media outlet is run by a guy who has made a career out of complaining about the rest of the media doing this exact same thing.

Not entirely sure about this, but it was telling that Hueso "thought I was off the record" when talking to the Voice of OC, a liberal outfit. When the story came out, he was faced with either backing off or going with it, and he chose to stand by it. However, Tony Young, another council member who according to the story supposedly witnessed DeMaio has denied that he ever saw anything inappropriate. This looks to me like Hueso might have been trying to do some off-the-record character assassination and got caught, and he's now forced to double down. Should be interesting to see how this plays out.

Filner treated the office like he had been made king and could just do whatever the hell he felt like, such as unilaterally pulling a construction permit as one of the earlier posters mentioned. Power mad nutballs don't set well with me, but one thing I'll always like him for was his shutting down the red light cameras in San Diego. So, yes, I will sell out my principles if the price is right.

I'm asking because I really don't know. I haven't been following the story and all I know is he was accused and then resigned.

If he did do something illegal then prosecute him for it. If he didn't, was he deposed by innuendo?

We live in a country where peeing on a tree in public (with no one around to see) can get you on a sexual predator list. Innocent lives are ruined too often by false and unproven allegations.

I was going to post a "Totally looks like" with Filner and VIncent D'Onofrio pulling his skin up in "Men in Black" but then I saw someone on freerepublic already did it and I'll be damned if I'll be second to anyone on that site.

Oh well.

He raped a 14 year old.
