Obviously the keynoter is there to provide some hands-on experience.
10News has learned Mayor Bob Filner has agreed to be the keynote speaker at a benefit for sexual assault victims.
A women veterans group tells 10News the mayor’s camp has just confirmed the appearance. Filner was originally scheduled to attend as an award recipient.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Amid the recent scandal swirling around Filner, the group stripped him of the award. In a statement, the groups said, “We do not tolerate sexual discrimination at any level within our society.”
Still, the group did not disinvite the mayor from the August award gala, instead announcing that he will address the scandal in a speech.
“He is now the keynote speaker on these injustices,” said the group.
No doubt Filner is sympathetic to the plight of those who’ve been sexually harrassed, especially those who are to afraid to come forward against him.
