5. This is largely a local story.

Your claims that Filner was the consummate insider and close ally of Pelosi and Hoyer, don't hold up and you provide no evidence for those claims.

How is Filner impacting the CA Dem party? Please provide links to sources and stories. Otherwise it's just a claim with no evidence.

Filner may not have been a back bencher but he wasn't a consequential figure or in the House leadership at any time. He wasn't some powerful congressman. Hell, he had less power than my rep who wasn't even elected until 2006 and did make it into the House Leadership. And Welch is from Vermont not CA.

I'm not sure what you think the inside track machine is, but Filner was not an important figure in Congress or in D.C.

It's not about outrage, it's about the obvious reasons why Weiner really is an international above the fold story and Filner isn't.
