Not that this will matter outside the cigarette-butt-free city limits of San Diego, but Bob ‘Filthy’ Filner is history.
How many terms did he serve in congress—nine? Tell me, is not this guy a testament to insouciant voters? Well, maybe Democrats aren’t exactly indifferent, maybe Democrats just think, Wow, he tries to rape people—cool! and punch the ballot.
Bob Filner announced his resignation Friday as San Diego’s 35th mayor following a tumultuous six weeks in which lurid allegations of repeated sexual misconduct against women crippled his ability to lead and turned him into a subject of national ridicule.
Filner will step down on Aug. 30 as part of a deal approved by the City Council on a 7-0 vote Friday that limits his legal and financial exposure stemming from a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a former aide.
In a dramatic appearance before the council, Filner apologized to his few remaining supporters and the women he offended while at the same remaining defiant that he did nothing wrong. He blamed the downtown business establishment, the media and his fellow elected officials for concocting a political coup to force his exit.
“I started my political career facing lynch mobs and I think we have just faced one here in San Diego and you’re going to have to deal with that,” he said. “In a lynch-mob mentality, rumors become allegations, allegations become facts, facts become evidence of sexual harassment, which have led to demands for my resignation and recall. Not one allegation … has even been independently verified or proven in court. I have never sexually harassed anyone.” [More sexually deranged Democrat politician news here]
Is it just Bob the Hugger, or does anyone else smell an underhanded, bigoted, intolerant, undiverse Republican cabal behind all of this?
Suggestion: Bob, Sidney Leathers probably needs a hug, and Kaitlyn Hunt definitely needs one. Wait. You don’t have a girlfriend anymore, so strike Kaitlyn. Get your ass kicked trying for a hug in that neighborhood, bro.
Or better yet, trade junk tweets with Anthony Weiner.
Give old Bob a year: he’ll pop up running for, say, comptroller.
