San Diego News 10 is reporting that Mayor Filner has completed his “intensive” therapy.
On Friday afternoon, Chief of Staff Lee Burdick told 10News reporter Allison Ash that Filner began his two weeks of “intensive” therapy one week earlier due to “intense media coverage.”
Filner was scheduled to leave his program on August 19 but is expected to be back in San Diego today.
Coincidentally (or not) Senator Boxer came out today with some particularly harsh words for her fellow Democrat. This is remarkable only because Boxer had already called for Filner’s resignation, so why make another public statement? With a few exceptions, it’s not been easy to get the Democrats to come out against Filner. Which leads me to this: the two hold-outs on the City Council, union-friendly Marti Emerald and Myrtle Cole finally (FINALLY!?!) called for Filner’s resignation today.
Something is brewing.
