Skip to comments.San Diego to get a gay mayor
Posted on 08/23/2013 8:57:05 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
San Diego has a long reputation as a mecca of political conservatism, but that image could crumble after the resignation Friday of its mayor, Bob Filner, in the face of allegations of sexual harassment. His replacement will be a gay man, making San Diego the nation's second-largest city to be led by an openly gay person.
The City Council voted 7-0 Friday to approve a deal to accept Filner's resignation in exchange for covering some of his legal expenses related to the harassment allegations involving city employees. A spokesman for California Attorney General Kamala Harris said Friday that Harris has opened a criminal investigation into Filner but declined to elaborate.
According to the City Charter rules, City Council President Todd Gloria will become acting mayor when Filner, the city's first Democratic mayor in 20 years, leaves office Friday. An election will be held within 90 days.
Including Gloria, at least four of the potential candidates lining up to replace Filner are gay, including one Republican. It's another significant milestone in the ascending political power of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community when the nation's eighth-largest city - and one with a well-earned conservative reputation - has a gay chief executive.

oh, for the sake of Pete
I feel sorry for the children in this city who will probably become prey soon enough.
From pervert to pervert.
San Diego was about the only thing keeping Californios anchored.
They should all drift to sea soon, suffering horribly. Adios homos!
San Digaygo. Let’s play Musical Pervs.
What is this, a joke?
You stay classy, San Diego.
Well, why not, I guess...now that we’ve allowed a culture to be created that says there’s nothing wrong with being a faggot and you can get married and all. First “we” were all racists, now I guess we’re all homo-phobes.
I think he is the reason that Filner won the election since he's a openly declared queer.
When Princess Hillary or another lib woman becomes president, gay men will be labeled the ideal male. We will even have a cabinet full of them.
Anthony Weiner must be thrilled.
There is actually someone more ugly and repulsive than him who can serve as a pervert poster child for the left.
But you have to admit, they look like cousins.
What a cluster...
Maybe DeMayo will sink-o.
What? Taxpayers have to pay his lawyers? That makes no sense. I wouldn't have taken that "deal". Hell it shouldn't even be legal. Force the SOB out against his will.
Including Gloria, at least four of the potential candidates lining up to replace Filner are gay, including one Republican.
4? Jeez. Migrants from Frisco? Nice weather though.
The gay RINO (Carl DeMaio) is running for Congress instead BTW.
Lets hope he goes down in flames.
Bad to worse or worse to worse or whatever.
These deals are always stupid
Our City Manager was being paid $400K a year (town of 200,000) and had a month left on his contract. The entire council was set to buy out his contract for another $400,000... !!
Nothing but a gift. After an outcry they finally decided to make him an advisor for a year for the money. Pure insanity.
Was once an awesome city...with dumpy parts...now it’s just a dump.
My heart mourns.
Did you say "goes down on a flamer"?
New San Diego mayor enjoys shitty sex life.
where’d they buy their gay mayor from? the idiot article makes it sound like they just went over to Homo Depot and bought one.
what makes ya think the cabinet ain’t full of them now? we’ve got more dykes in obama’s cabinet now than the netherlands.
what a cluster...any gay pride parade?
‘Gay’ is such a forlorn misnomer. This is a life of utter misery with an isolated thrill or two in it.
yeah, it is genuinely ironic, using ironic properly.
At least he will leave the women folk alone.
so this is the reason for the stink
they wanted to get a fag into position
I did that in Dec 2000, but arranged to take my job with San Diego level salary with me. Life was great until Obama took office. The work I did from my home office evaporated. I left my family at home in Idaho and spent 4 years living in a small room to have work in San Diego. That work ended at the end of April this year. I'm living off the accrued vacation from 3 1/2 years of not taking time off. That will run out by Oct 1st. Just in time for the new contract award...I hope. Back to the little room in San Diego...900 miles from my home in Idaho.
My point is that you should have a source of income in mind when you move to Idaho. There are few employers offering great salaries here. Most employment is retail and restaurant. Not much opportunity to ply my software/hardware engineering skills aside from the Idaho National Labs. Half the pay I earn now and a life that involves a bus ride at 5:30 AM each day to work and returns at 5:30 PM. Many of my neighbors live that way.
The first line in that article would make me think Filner was a conservative if I didn’t know better.
Todd Gloria? Is that a given name, or just one he can transpose at “Pride” parades?
Just ANOTHER PERVERT on the Hershey Highway.
Some people really hate these “gay” guys because of all the disease and lies and hatred and degradation that they spread. However, and even if it sounds crazy for a moment please bear with me, God’s Spirit has got me in a pincer hold. And God has made it very clear to me that He wants to save, wash, and renew as many of these grim people as possible. He’s not there in heaven with any grudges against them. That is why He sent His Son to sacrifice His life upon the cross of Calvary. They’re the ones with grudges against Him! The troubles they have are a very loud signal that they need the Lord. Whoever dares to effectively share the great news of the gospel with them is going to get richly blessed, and will also gain a new set of witnesses to God’s love and glory. We’re all losers in our fallenness. But God is the winner, always has been, always will be. If Satan digs a hole, God fills it twice as much. Let’s see these people as God does — as prospective resources for His kingdom. Not wimpily merely doing a rope a dope on His forgiveness after salvation (as much as that is needed for every Christian), but claiming His bold love. Which WILL sanctify their bodies if they exalt Him to that purpose. Not MIGHT... WILL! And it will be a huge in-your-face to Satan as all the physical and emotional resources that had been dedicated to sin come under the “God’s spell” of Christ’s righteousness.
Let me tell you brothers and sisters. When we see the “gays” getting saved openly, we will know without a doubt God is in our land again. It’s going on now, has been for decades, but in private settings and the people are shy because they get a lot of opprobrium. Boldness needs to be brought back into the picture. The Lion of Judah did not come to this wicked earth to meow in a corner!
And when Houston’s lesbian mayor is term limited out, she’ll probably be replaced by the gay prostitute trolling George Greanias.
So now guys will be hit upon.
It’s part of the ongoing Democrats’ War on Women.
