Filner's Lawyer, Arguing Why the City Should Pay His Legal Bills:
(clears throat)
Are You Ready?
"The City Never Trained Filner to Not Sexually Harrass Women So It's the City's Fault."

Well the logic does make sense.

Your employer must tell you what is expected of you and what is forbidden of you.

That's why they give you that stupid corporate harassment rulebook.

The city is Filner's employer now.

So, if the city didn't tell him he couldn't grope women, isn't that really the city's fault?

Eric "Otter" Stratton just emailed me: "Well played. Very well played."

"Filner never received sexual harassment training required under the law."

"The city failed to provide such training to Mayor Filner," Filnerís lawyer Harvey Berger wrote in a July 29 letter to City Attorney Jan Goldsmith. "In fact, it is my understanding that such training was scheduled, but the trainer for the city unilaterally cancelled, and never re-scheduled such training for the Mayor (and others.) Therefore, if there is any liability at all, the city will almost certainly be liable for 'failing to prevent harassment under Government Code Section 12940(k)."

In the meantime, an eighth accuser stepped forward.

And no one in DC ever heard anything, even though he spent 75% of his time there and only a little bit in San Diego, and even though a San Diego reporter says he heard.

Oh there's a couple of jokes at the link.

Exit quote: "Filner made it very clear how powerful he was, how he was pulling strings all over San Diego... that there could be repercussions for our district."

That's the reason why the woman didn't report it, she says.

Jake Tapper talked to some Democrats who are now willing to say they were vaguely creeped out by Filner.

Allah has some more about that, as Democratic hack Hilary Rosen admitted late in his show that she'd heard some vague things about him that she didn't elaborate on. (Video at the bottom, go towards the end.)

Someone should ask Lori Saldana. I've done everything to make this connection happen short of convincing her to sit on a reporter's face.
