Mayor McSilkytouch's Chief of Staff is Bogusly Claiming Attorney-Client Privilege To Avoid Turning Over Notes, It Is Alleged, About Sexual Harassment

And other amazements.

Turns out San Diego did provide an online sexual harassment lesson; Mayor McSquickfinger just didn't bother.

As you may already know, the city attorney Jerry Goldsmith has forbidden female members of the media from meeting alone with Filner. This is to avoid another harassment and another mulcting of the city's coffers.

Melissa Harris-Perry, last seen modeling feminine hygiene jewelry, embarrasses herself anew by asking if this policy, rather than Mayor Feel U Up, is discriminatory against women.

And how is the LA Times covering this? With their typical level of excellence.


Bob Filner May Be Republicans' Best Friend

Now, in fairness, there is a much-smaller subhed:

Long starved of power, many San Diego liberals were willing to overlook Filner's reputation. That may turn out to be a colossal miscalculation.

The article does imply that Filner is a Democrat, chiefly on the second page (after the jump), but strangely, in an article about Republicans' taking advantage of the situation, they can never quite bite the bullet and explicitly identify Filner as a Democrat.

Kind of like the euphemism "the n-word." It's okay to allude to it, but incredibly rude to outright say it.

Until page 2, Filner is just the Republicans' best bud.

And strangely, in an article that touches ever-so-lightly on liberals' willingness to look the other way, they never quite get 'round to reporting the fact that Democratic assemblywoman Lori Saldana warned the party about this two years ago, and not only did they do nothing, but they threatened her into supporting Filner.
