Filthy Filner: Hey, San Diego, How About Paying My Legal Fees?

Posted by on Jul 30, 2013 at 6:41 am

With 67% of San Diego residents saying they want this loathsome turd to resign from office, the odious Bob Filner Monday had the balls to suggest the city should pay his legals fees.

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.

    Unless San Diego has some other meaningful revenue source, shouldn’t the headline for this story read “Filner asks taxpayers to cover his legal fees”?

    The local media offices should all have to pay his legal fees. They protected him through all his abuses, when it is their damn job to expose douchebags like this.

    At some point, when people are being harmed, it’s not even your job as a journalist to stand up for others. It’s your job as a human being. I mean, just, damn. How can you stand by when he’s putting women in headlocks?? The fuck?
