Associated Press ^ | Jul 26, 2013 12:34 PM EDT | Ken Thomas

The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee is calling on San Diego Mayor Bob Filner to resign after four more women said they were targets of his sexual advances.

Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz leads the DNC. She says the misconduct Filner has been accused of is “reprehensible and indefensible.” …

But if four males were alleging likewise, would DWS have anything to say? Didn’t think so.

“reprehensible and indefensible”

When it was Slick Willy poking stogies up an intern's vagina in the freaking Oval Office, it was no biggie, but now it is. So why all the outrage now? Wasn't Clinton's behavior at least as borish

This slimebag has no intention of resigning.

He holds such a high opinion of himself, he thought the Mayor-ship was his stepping stone to CA governor.

I don't think the article specifically said what the ‘sexual advances’ were, so I was stating that if the same types of sexual advances were from males (whatever age), would then Schultz be equally as appalled and call for his resignation?

I'm guessing not for fear of shedding a bad light on homosexuality, and homosexuals are also a protected class, both legally and through political correctness.

It has taken awhile for the Dems to get around to telling Filner to quit. If he had been a Republican, they would have demanded his head on Day One. It’s fun to read the posts for San Diego’s local newspaper online, watching some of the local Dems remain in self righteous denial for their candidate. I must say I was surprised, however, to see left wing publicity hound, Gloria Allred grab the microphone and pile on Filner for one of the accusers. I guess the money must have been just too good to pass on joining the dogpile.

Boorish behavior by white males who happen to be liberal Democrats is considered to be a resume enhancement. DWS has better a little careful of what behavior she may be calling for to be stopped, as this is starting to hit a little close to home for the majority of the (sort of) heterosexual males who consider themselves liberal card-carrying Democrats. Of course, this particular demographic is something of a minority within the Democrat tent, as the numbers of non-whites, females and gay males greatly exceed the numbers of (sort of) heterosexual males.

Not politically reliable anyway. Everybody knows this is the first demographic that flees to the establishment branch of the Republican party.

Much to the chagrin of the T.E.A. party advocates.

Local news yesterday showed Filner leaving the Concourse building in San Diego; he was headed to a waiting SUV. Reporters asked him questions which he arrogantly ignored. Then Filner started to run toward the SUV. That was when one reporter yelled at him asking why he was running and why he was not fulfilling his promise to have an open, transparent government. He was asked why was he running from the questions for which the people of San Diego deserve answers. It was comical. Filner came across as an arrogant coward. The local media is all over this and it is getting real ugly. But it is interesting to watch. :-)

I just heard that Filner has called a presser, we're waiting for that now. Maybe he's going to resign.

Interesting!

I hope he resigns, but it's not in his blood. If he does, it's on the strong advice from several lawyers., because he's a full-blown sociopath.

He thinks rules and and laws are written for others to obey.

lol! Well that makes me happy because I want him to stay. He is the perfect example of what you get when you elect a democRAT.

This isn't over, though. San Diego democRATs want him out. I have a feeling that this fight has just begun. :-)

Of course he isn’t. They’re both arrogant democRATs. Clinton survived his perverted past, they believe they will too, though I doubt either man stands a chance. They’re just prolonging the agony and perpetuating the negative news stories that have dominated each man. And for that I am thankful.

Both men may be arrogant liberals but here is one big difference between the two; Weiner is polling second so he still has supporters and possibly a chance. Aside from Marti Emerald, I don’t think anyone in SD is supporting Filner.

He holds such a high opinion of himself, he thought the Mayor-ship was his stepping stone to CA governor.

I actually heard some woman say he's innocent until proved guilty. I was screaming at the tv, "he's already admitted what he did by saying he's going to get treatment, ya maroon!"

They are going to push him out, I think. All but 2 of the city councilmen are calling for him to resign (and they are getting a lot of pressure to make it unanimous), plus the national Dems (Pelosi, Wassermen-schultz, etc) won't go near the slime much less back him up.

He is going to be forced into the realization that he's done. I just hope it's before we have to foot the bill for a recall!

Filner is probably waiting for a nice financial offer from the city to get rid of him. Maybe a nice big severance payment and full pension for life, as if he had served out two terms, plus full defense costs and indemnity from civil claims by the victims. That would be just about right. (s)

The Dems would approve it, because it isn’t their money.

I saw on TV the kind of women who attract this guy - women who walk, talk and dress very provocatively, flaunting their sexuality.

If he won't quit, recall him, impeach him or do whatever you need to do under San Diego rules to get this guy out of office ASAP!

I could see this as not totally out of the realm of possibilities!

I hear he's waiting two weeks for his special treatment because there are some votes coming up that he owes the unions. Gotta pay off those campaign donations....

Only a resume enhancement if (1)already in the Oval Office. Everyone else gets tossed under the bus and driven over by the Dem elites. Except, of course, homos and non-whites. There is definetly a hierarchy of those in the Dem Party who will be defended vehemently, no matter what.
