San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is facing yet another lawsuit, this time from his own city.

Shouldn't they wait until he's found guilty?

Or did I miss something?

But... but... but don't representatives of the Democratic [sic] party get free passes? How come the fix isn't in already?

Why, those mean Republicans!

Nope, he's a democrat and doesn't deserve due process. Besides he's already confessed that he's a serial sexual harasser.

The San Diego City Attorney is a Republican. Filner has been treating him like crap since day one. Hahaha!

If getting sued by his employer doesn’t tell this guy he needs to go, what better clue does he need?

Now, now, he's in "re-hab."

LOL.

That slimebag, power-hungry perverted Communist has to go and I so want him to eventually emerge from this penniless!

Did you miss that he confessed and apologized? Thusly, there is no doubt that he is guilty and there is no doubt he needs to go.

Yeah, and Weiner was in rehab. A lot of good that did. That seems to be the response when liberals get caught doing something wrong; they'll go to rehab. Mel Gibson went to rehab. Does anyone not believe he still hates Jews?

Rehab isn't intended to change the offender. It's a tool used to change the way someone is viewed by the general public and it sometimes works. Unfortunately for Filner, he is no Mel Gibson. And neither is Weiner. They're both serial creeps who are likely too arrogant to change.

I’m familiar with Goldsmith. I believe the problems between he and Filner go well beyond party politics. Filner is a jackass and his first 7 months in office have been a complete disaster.

This morning I heard an analogy that right now Goldsmith looks like a cat with canary feathers around his mouth.

Thanks South40.
...for the costs incurred as a result of the sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by his former communications director Irene McCormack Jackson... City Council decided unanimously to file the lawsuit during a closed-door session Tuesday.
He won't go quietly.

Does this trip to the “rehab farm” make him a privileged minority with special entitlements?

Well, if they’re gonna do that, they could at least pay for his defense costs against their own suit, you know, to even things out a bit. Make things just a bit more fair. You know, the way Democrats like to do things like that.

lol! Goldsmith is no fan of Filner so he's got to be loving this. That aside, he is doing his job, and from all accounts I have heard he is doing it well.
