Another Former Staffer Comes Forward to Accuse Filner

She also sent an email to Filner complaining the treatment -- establishing contemporaneous documentary evidence of the event.

This happened during the period when Filner was a colleague and close ally of War on Women Field Marshal Nancy Pelosi.

According to KPBS Laura Fink, was Filner’s deputy campaign manager when the alleged incident took place at a fundraising event in 2005. Fink told KPBS that then-Congressman Filner patted her “posterior” while making a crude joke at the fundraiser.

KPBS reported that Fink said she sent an email to Filner’s personal account and documented the incident, demanding an apology. Fink told KPBS that a few days later, Filner mumbled to her, “I’m sorry” but added that she did not understand what happened.

I like that. "I know your tiny woman-brain thinks I patted your buttocks, but that is only because you are a stupid, confused pre-whore who can't understand very basic things that happen around her and to her own body. Obviously I have a great deal of respect for the Gender of Feebleminds and Sex-Retards."

Now, I know what you're thinking. You're saying to yourself, "Ace, that's all well and good, but I'm as certain as the sun is bright that distinguished Fake Feminist organizations such as Emily's List as well as other high-ranking officers in the War on Women have come out to denounce Filner and win this hill for the Army of Gender Respect."

Well once again, you are totally, completely wrong, and seriously, it's just getting embarrassing. Maybe you should mutter to yourself a little less and read a bunch more.

A spokeswoman for Emily’s List, a group that works to elect women supportive of abortion rights, argued the difference between Filner’s — or Weiner’s or Spitzer’s for that matter — behavior and that of Republican gaffe-prone men has to do with the legislative priorities of the GOP.

“The difference is that Republicans’ words and personal actions are backed up by an actual party legislative agenda that hurts women — this stuff goes from infuriating and outrageous to genuinely frightening when they’re trying to back it up with real live laws that roll back the clock to a time when women were treated as second class citizens,” Emily’s List Communications Director Jess McIntosh said. “Akin only mattered because Republicans had already tried to redefine rape in legislation — the Republicans gaffing all over the place when it comes to women are not outliers. They are reflective of their party’s actual agenda.”

Top California Democratic women — from Sen. Barbara Boxer to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — have hedged on explicitly calling on Filner to step down but made their disapproval with his behavior clear.

Pelosi told a reporter on Thursday to not identify Filner “as my former colleague” and said at her weekly press conference, “What goes on in San Diego is up to the people of San Diego…my colleagues who do represent San Diego have made their statements on the subject.”

What happens in DC stays in DC. It's like Vegas, except corrupt.
