By today that 67% could well reach 100%.
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has asked the city to cover his legal fees for a sexual harassment lawsuit, according to an agenda released by the city council.
The city council will convene in a special closed session on Tuesday night to discuss whether or not to pay for legal fees in a sexual harassment claim filed by Filner’s former employee Irene McCormack Jackson.
Jackson publicly came forward last week and alleged that Filner told her to “work without panties” and detailed other alleged acts of sexual harassment. Jackson called her experience working for the mayor “the worst time of my entire working life.”
Prominent San Diego attorney Gloria Allred is representing Jackson, and filed the lawsuit last week.
Filner has been accused of sexually harassing multiple women — a total of seven women have publicly come forward claiming he acted inappropriately toward them.
The mayor has since apologized for “offending” women, and will enter intensive therapy for two weeks to “begin the process of addressing [his] behavior.”
The city council should also be recalled if they go along with this insanity.
