Having a bad day

11 Jul

Bob-Filner-sizedThe Mayor of San Diego is not having a good month.

At least three well-known supporters are calling for Bob Filner to resign.

It’s all about alleged sexual harassment.

The three delivered the letters to him and then promptly released them to the press.

It has been a summer of scandal and accusations against the Democrat mayor, who has only been in office a little over six months.

Filner has a bitter political feud going on with a Republican city attorney who’s accusing him of being abusive.

Both sides are accusing the other of engaging in questionable – even illegal – behavior.

There’s also been two high-profile resignations, including the Mayor’s Director of Communications and Deputy Chief of Staff.

Others have criticized the mayor’s treatment of staff in meetings.

And then there is the so-called Sunroad Enterprises scandal, where Filner is accused of shaking down a developer for a $100,000 donation to a veteran’s memorial and bike-safety campaign.

The press is reporting the FBI is looking into this one.

As the press loves to say – this story is developing.
