Maybe You Should Come to "Work Without Your Panties On:" One Filner Accuser Comes Forward, Files Suit, Details Harassment

A knock against the woman is that she's hired Gloria Alred to represent her, but hell, this guy is guilty as sin.

Via Politico:

Allred said that Filner had asked McCormack Jackson to “work without her panties on,” placed her in a headlock and told her that he wanted to consummate their relationship, among other incidents of harassment.

“Women were viewed by Mayor Filner as sexual objects or stupid idiots,” said McCormack Jackson, a former reporter who resigned from her position as communications director in June. “His behavior made me feel ashamed, frightened and violated.”

“For some of what we stated, there were witnesses,” added Allred, who called on Filner to resign.

Meanwhile, the San Diego Sheriff has set up a special hotline for victims of the mayor to report harassment/groping charges against him.

The hotline was set up Friday, and the sheriff said he already has some complaints, which he won't discuss.

I know exactly what you're thinking. You're thinking, "My goodness, the Field Marshal of the #WarOnWomen, General Nancy Pelosi, must be chompin' at the bit to weigh into this!"

Okay, prepare for shock -- she's not.

“I’m not here to make any judgments.”

She wants to leave it to the San Diego Democratic Party and California Democratic Party, the people to whom these allegations were reported two years ago but covered them up and, in fact, threatened one women with a blackballing if she didn't support Filner.

I know, right? I had trouble believing it myself.
