(Former Imperial County Congressman being asked to resign)….Bob Filner is the current Mayor of San Diego.
Before being elected Mayor to San Diego Filner was a Congressman, whose district included parts of San Diego and all of Imperial County. This week three of Filner’s staunchest supporters have called for his resignation. The three include a former San Diego City Council Person and two environmental attorneys. In asking for his resignation, the 3 submitted letters alleging sexual harassment. One letter indicates the violations may have been against staff members in the Mayor’s office. No legal action has been filed against Filner, but the 3 allege there are several credible reports of sexual harassment. The accusers are expected to release more information later. Filner has not responded to the accusations or the requests that he resign his office.
