SUIT FILED AGAINST MAYOR FILNER OVER SEXUAL HARASSMENT

July 23, 2013 (San Diego)—Two press conferences were held yesterday regarding the scandal in San Diego City Hall involving Mayor Bob Filner.

Prominent attorney Gloria Allred announced that she has filed a civil lawsuit against Mayor Filner on behalf of Irene McCormack-Jackson in Superior Court. McCormack-Jackson read a statement and her lawyer answered some questions from the media.

Usually tempest in teapot stay local. Filner was until last term a U.S Congressman. This is why this matters nationally. (The CBC crew surprised me).

But, but...it's a local story. I have to agree with my BIL, if all this will have things...emerge from his 20 years in DC.

36. Thanks, but I will continue to respect the paper's style sheet

it is an old fashioned style sheet, as in old school, but it is what it is.

6. That is the shoe brother in law and I expect to drop

Two reasons, one very factual, the other hearsay.

Factual, Filner is twice divorced and his fiancée left him...suddenly about two months ago

Hearsay...he was a professor of history at SDSU when I was attending. There were rumors of a prof chasing skirts. I never really paid attention to that back them.

I also almost expect charges given how evasive everybody is about it.

Doesn't that fish-wrapper have an editor?

7. "Our news media is truly broken"

We have stories of international importance (Egypt) and both msnbc and CNN are on a tragic local trial.

I changed the channel to my local fox station. They are actually covering things lie yes Egypt.

Sad...also they are covering local news, but they are a local station.

I understand where you're coming from, but you're relatively new here, and there's a long history. I suggest you see something from someone who has had to see this going on for a very long time.

26. i think the main issue with people getting pissy (including myself)

is that the poster has a long history of being condescending and incredibly rude to anyone who disagrees with her. no matter how polite the interaction starts, if they continue to question what she is trying to get at she quickly calls names, accuses people of personal attacks (despite just not agreeing with her), putting everyone that disagrees with her on her 'iggy list' and a slew of other behaviours that frankly border on pathological (and I am not trying to be rude here... just a statement of opinion).

i know you're trying to defend and help... but she brought it all on herself.

When people have repeatedly reached out with an olive branch, only to be beaten with it every time, they're not always so forgiving.

40. Anyone that gets personal or frankly asks her a question gets put on her ignore list.

Or she at least posts a "plonk" or whatever phrase she uses these days. So I wouldn't worry about those that are pointing things out to Nadine, because I doubt she sees it anyway.

Seriously, I think I got the ignore when I pointed out there are 100cm in a meter and not 60.

Nadine dishes it out but can't take even honest questions about her "nooze" articles.

38. It is weird to watch your local scandal on national

And Todd Gloria, (who has national aspirations) on the Hayes show.

Hayes forgot a little detail. Jan Golstein, city attorney, now has rules in place where the mayor cannot be alone, with any woman, in city hall.

That is a tiny little detail.

(And the third presser yesterday)
