Skip to comments.San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has Resigned!

I am watching the local city council meeting in San Diego and Filner has resigned, effective August 30, 2013.
What fool of a city council would give the idiot another 7 days to make them even more liable for more costs?
Filner is currently speaking and claiming he is the victim of a “lynch mob”. Said he has “never sexually harassed anyone”.
Now he needs to go to jail and get a little sexual harassment of his own. Sorry POS.
Good timing. He’ll be able to join the Tony Weiner campaign staff for 10 days of intensive campaigning before the election.
What a doofus!!!
Hmmm? With all those democrat resume enhancements?
Here’s an opening for Bill Clinton. One thing he’s never been is a typical Dem female-groping mayor. Most Dem mayors are just content to be embezzlers like one female ex-mayor of San Diego named Maureen O’Connor who stole millions.
I would have loved to have watched that! Lynch mob....LOL! Poor upset democrat.
San Diego Mayor Bob Filners resignation deal is only effective if the City Council agrees to pay all his legal fees and any settlements that might stem from his numerous sexual harassment charges a trade-off that could cost taxpayers big bucks, a local media outlet reported.
Council voted 7-0 to accept the deal with 2 members absent.
This clown oaf looks like any DIMocRAT politician or supporter.
San Diego has had only 2 Democrat mayors in the last 40+ years. Maureen O’Connor the embezzler and Filner. What a set of bookends.
Anybody confirm that?
I wonder if my employer would pay my legal fees if I asked my secretary not to wear underwear to work everyday...not that I would want her too... since she is 63 years old...:)
That’s what is says here
It's true. Legal fees and payouts for settlements and/or damages paid. City Attorney Jan Goldsmith is talking about it now. he did say that the city could seek reimbursement from Filner for any damages paid. But there is no guarantee it will do so and you can't get blood from a turnip.
Hmmm. I seem to recall Jerry Sandusky saying the same thing!
So where is he going to be appointed in the Obama Administration?
Jerry Sandusky — another creepy ass cracker.
a 21-hug salute! ;-]
scumbag got off easy, sandiego gets goosed..
He’s probably waiting to see what kind of deal he can get to host on MSNBC.
Perhaps by 2016 the two can be "rehabilitated" enough to be keynote speakers at the DemocRAT convention...
San Diego was going to get hosed any way you look at it. Had Filner been removed by recall the city/taxpayers would still have been liable for Filner’s actions while he was mayor. The damage was done and the cit must pay.
Don’t cities have insurance for this kind of management malfeasance?
Did he get that one last “feel” before he departed?
Another perverted politician. Oh, and a Democrat- there’s a shocker!
I don’t think insurance covers intentional acts.
wonder what benefits kick-in over the next seven days.... follow the money.
Good riddance you perv.
Only question is why didn’t they get rid of him earlier.
The city would have to anyway even if it had not come to a settlement. Just as with private sector, the city is liable for all officers and/or agents within its employ.
Excuse me but ALL DEMOCRATS ARE A FREAK SHOW!!!!!!!
san diego used to have a zoo. now it is a zoo. :-}
Just the thought of that grotesque ape touching me makes me retch.
Indeed they are. That is why I wanted Filner to stay — as a reminder of what you get when you elect a democRAT.
Bwahahaha! Talk about a picture with “separated at birth” potential.
So his treatment didn’t work? When did he say the lynching will take place? Did he say if it will be televised?
That’s him? LOL!!
I have NEVER seen the press get behind a ‘so called’ prevert like this since Bob Packwood and Larry Craig. sarc/
Packwood was accused of groping younger staff members and fellow elevator riders and Craig of ‘restroom stance’ fame.
NOT only did the PRESS NOT BACK THEM, the R’s DEMANDED their heads collectively roll.
Of course, D’s like Wiener, Filbert, Clintoon, Bwanney Fwank, etal are a cut above the average R, just because they are D’s, so they do not come under the scrutiny.
Also - while mentioning the press, am sure they are collectively gathering ALL the data that was being used for the ouster of BO and positioning it so as to be used as reasons to NOT allow Cruz or Rubio (neither exactly my choice as of this time) - they have already ‘warmed up’ when they leveled accusations at J McCain being born in CZ and Romneys father in Mexico - ALTHOUGH both had US parents and were citizens at the time, Romney GF on missionary work and McCain Father as a member of the US NAVY.
That’s my birthday! What a wonderful “gift!”
I used to live in San Diego county. Like I said I wish I could see him cry a river!!!! Maybe Greta will have some clips of it?
at least that's what i've read anywany
It’s not. SD has to pay either way. I’m not sure what incentives they gave him to go but it wasn’t that.
SD can sue Filthy Filner to recover any settlement and/or judgement $$$ the city has to pay, though city attorney Jan Goldsmith stopped shot of saying it would. Maybe that was the deal. Go away and we won’t seek reimbursement.
Filthy Filner just stuck it to San Diego taxpayers. Those who approved this deal should be voted out. ASAP.
He stuck it to San Diego taxpayers when he sexually harassed women. The city was responsible for his actions long before this deal -- the deal had nothing to do with it.
Just why wasn’t he arrested?
