In The Other Mayoral Sex Scandal: San Diego Votes To Sue “Headlock” Bobby Filner For Covering His Legal Fees

Posted: July 31, 2013 in Random Thought


The San Diego City Council voted Tuesday to sue Mayor Bob Filner to recover costs the city may incur over the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by his former communications director as an eighth woman publicly accused the mayor of unwanted advances. The council’s unanimous vote Tuesday came hours before the nine-member board takes up Filner’s request to have San Diego taxpayers pay his legal fees in the case. “This is part of due process,” City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said. “If Bob Filner engaged in unlawful conduct and the city is held liable, he will have to reimburse us every penny the city pays and its attorney fees.” The dispute over legal costs comes as a recall effort against Filner, who is accused by eight women of behavior such as groping, unwanted kissing and sexual advances, began in earnest Monday. Lisa Curtin, director of government and military education at San Diego City College, became the eighth woman to go public with allegations about Filner when she told KPBS that he made unwanted advances to her during a meeting in 2011, when he was a member of Congress, the station reported. Curtin said that Filner asked to meet with her privately at the conclusion of a business meeting, and that once alone with her he asked about the wedding ring she was wearing. She replied that she had been married for 25 years, she said. “He then asked me if it could come off while I was in D.C. and if I would go out with him,” Curtin said. “I said I really didn’t think so. And at that point, he pulled my hand closer to him and he reached over to kiss me. I turned my head at that moment and on the side of my face, I got a very wet, saliva-filled kiss including feeling his tongue on my cheek.” Curtin said she did not report the incident to police at the time but has since reported it to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, which has established a hotline for reports of alleged misconduct by the mayor. Irene McCormack Jackson, Filner’s former aide, filed suit against the mayor and the city last week alleging, among other things, that the mayor told her he wanted to see her naked and asked her to work without wearing underwear. Filner apologized for his behavior and said he would undergo “intensive therapy” for two weeks starting Aug. 5. The former Democratic congressman, who was elected to the city post in November, has rejected repeated calls to resign. Seven of the nine San Diego City Council members have called on Filner to step down. Resignation calls have also come from top Democrats such as Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the state’s senior senator, and national party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. “Bob Filner can’t pay back San Diegans for the damage he’s done to our city’s reputation, but he can and should repay the City if there are any taxpayer costs as a result of this lawsuit,’‘ council member Kevin Faulconer said. Filner has hired a private attorney, Harvey Berger, to defend him in the lawsuit. The city attorney’s office is not representing Filner because the city is also a party to the lawsuit. Filner is the first Democratic mayor of the nation’s eighth most populous city in 20 years.

So while most of the country is fixated on Carlos Danger’s Tony Weiner, over here in SoCal good ol’ “Headlock” Bobby Filner is straight up refusing to resign. People from city councilmen to congressmen to senators just calling for his head. But they don’t call him Headlock Bobby for no reason. My mans got heart. He’s gonna fight until the final buzzer sounds and he’s completely and utterly broke with nothing but a broken marriage and thousands to pay back to the city of San Diego.

Honestly I know that these allegations are serious and they can make women feel uncomfortable, but you gotta laugh at some of the things he’s being accused of. C’mon, can’t you picture Headlock telling his aide to come to work commando? Shit’s hilarious. He was honestly probably kidding. Seriously, check out the lady who he asked to wear no panties…


Headlock crushes finer ass than that. This face alone pulls the sexiest 20-somethings in SoCal…


Bitches dig the creeper.

And state senator Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chill the fuck out. Nobody thinks any less of San Diego or its people because of Headlock. We still think of it as a beautiful looking city that’s the first stop for Mexicans crossing the boarder into Cali.
