San Diego News 10 is reporting that a new accuser has stepped forward to claim inappropriate behavior from Mayor Filner. Renne Estill-Sombright reported an incident at La Jolla Presbyterian Church in June.
Estill-Sombright was at the church for a benefit to help refugees from Africa.
“We were standing face-to-face and he held on to me and he was like, ‘You are so beautiful,'” she said.
She says Filner grabbed and held on to both her hands. But the “you’re so beautiful” comment was just the beginning.
“‘You are so beautiful and I cannot take my eyes off of you,'” she said. “‘I just cannot take my eyes off of you.'”
Estill-Sombright says she was taken off-guard.
“I said,’ Oh, thank you,'” she said. “I kind of felt weird.”
Then came a line which has become all too familiar.
“‘Do you have a husband? Are you married?’ And I was like, that was kind of odd for him to ask me that,” said Estill-Sombright.
Then, there was an invitation.
“And he said, ‘Well, you know this is a personal invitation. I would like to take you out sometime,'” she said.
