Filner discloses Paris trip costs (Filthy Filner covers his rear)
San Diego Union-Tribune ^ | 7/25/2013 | Trent Seibert

Posted on 07/27/2013 12:14:54 AM PDT by South40

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner made public late Thursday the expenses he and his security detail incurred for his June trip to France.

Filner’s office said the cost for his trip was $31,363, not all of it paid for by taxpayers.

Filner said his own $9,839 in travel costs were covered by the Organization of Iranian-American Communities, a group Filner described as a nonprofit organization although it is not listed as such in two national databases checked by U-T Watchdog.

This guy is so dirty he is filthy. In excess of $30k spent on a junket to France with his girlfriend is extremely excessive, especially when you consider his trip in 2011 cost $6,589 and his trip in 2007 cost $7,949.

He needs to be forced to repay the entire amount.

He’s a corrupt, power hungry, Communist pig.

He's in good company. The article says the same group that paid for his trip also paid for French trips for Rep. Clay Lacey, D-Mo, for $12,446; Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, for $15,255; and Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, for $10,999.

Commie trash all.

Better yet, make him spend time in the same room with Gloria Allred.

That would be some great pay-per-view: The Thing vs. Predator.

A trip to France paid for by an Iranian faction?

That just doesn’t sound right.

Sadly, leftist Jews think that Christians are more DANGEROUS to them than Arabs who want to KILL them!!! Go freaking figure.

What? What? Not only is he a lothario but he’s hopping to gay Paree with funding from a muslim front group?

What’s really going on with this guy? Is he a muslim? Is this why Pelosi, et al. were covering for him?

Talk about something that raises more questions, this post is it!

UPDATE:

He'll probably plead ignorance.

Organization that paid for Mayor Bob Filner's France trip was not nonprofit
