OK, Bob, since you need help, how about resigning and going off for treatment?
Mayor Bob Filner apologized Thursday for his poor treatment of women and vowed to change his behavior in response to allegations of repeated sexual harassment.
The mayor had been under siege for two days after his political allies went public with unspecified allegations that Filner had sexually harassed “numerous” women, including city employees. They called on him to resign from office.
“As someone who has spent a lifetime fighting for equality for all people, I am embarrassed to admit that I have failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me, and that at times I have intimidated them,” Filner said. “It’s a good thing that behavior that would have been tolerated in the past is being called out in this generation for what it is: inappropriate and wrong.”
It’s a good thing? Only a deranged Democrat could rationalize sexual harassment as being a good thing.
Filner, 70, said he has begun working with professionals to change his behavior and approach.
“I am also humbled to admit that I need help,” he said.
This is beyond pathetic.
I never want to hear another goddamned word about the so-called Republican war on women.
