Mayor Bob Filner will enter two weeks of “intensive” therapy today while he continues to run the city of San Diego.
While in therapy, Filner will be dealing with a “grilling” from lawyers regarding the lawsuit brought against him by his former communications director for sexual harassment. Among the allegations against Filner are that he asked his communications director to work without panties, wanted to see her naked, and dragged her around in the famous “Filner headlock.” Other women have come forward with allegations ranging from creepy behavior to shoving his tongue in their mouths, slobbering on their cheeks and grabbing their bottoms.
No one knows exactly where Filner will seek “treatment” but reports indicate he will be picking up the tab for his own therapy.
The San Diego City Council voted unanimously to indemnify themselves from the costs associated with Filner’s lawsuits. Seven of the nine city council members have called on Filner to resign. Marti Emerald and Myrtle Cole are the two hold outs.
