This scumbag Filner probably thankful to some extent that his former colleague Anthony Weiner hogged all the attention today. Well, for awhile, at least. It can’t be long until Filner’s history.
Team 10 partner KPBS is reporting that a second woman has come forward to publicly accuse San Diego Mayor Bob Filner of sexual harassment.
The woman claims to have been harassed while working for him during his days in Congress, according to a Team 10 partner KPBS exclusive interview.
According to KPBS Laura Fink, was Filner’s deputy campaign manager when the alleged incident took place at a fundraising event in 2005. Fink told KPBS that then-Congressman Filner patted her “posterior” while making a crude joke at the fundraiser.
KPBS reported that Fink said she sent an email to Filner’s personal account and documented the incident, demanding an apology. Fink told KPBS that a few days later, Filner mumbled to her, “I’m sorry” but added that she did not understand what happened.
Fink told KPBS that she worked for Filner from 2004 to 2006.
