Oh, No: Women Who Had Been Raped In the Miitary Came to Filner For Help;
Filner Began Touching Them Innapproriately and Rubbing Them and Asking for Dates

Sure, why not.

We should have guessed this would be the next one. I mean the next two. Here are some quotes from the women.

We start with a voicemail:

Hi, its your newly favorite congressman, Bob Filner. You know, the one who fell in love with you at your last speech. I dont want to wait til you come back to have dinner with you.

I don't know what her last speech was about but I assume it had something to do with being raped by higher-ranking men in the military.

Hey it was cool hearing about your rape, now how about some chicken and sex?

"He looks at my card. He looks at me. He says, 'Fernandez. Are you married? Do you have a husband?' Very quick, very direct. I said, 'No, I'm divorced.' 'Well, you're beautiful, and I can't take my eyes off you, and I want to take you to dinner.' I was really shocked and I was like, 'Uh, OK,'" Fernandez said.

"No, I'm not married. My marriage sort of collapsed after I was raped."

"Gee you're cute. Step into my Sketchy Looking Van."

After asking another woman about her rape...

"He got as close as he could to me. His jacket was touching my jacket," Tindley said. "I was bent down. He was bent down with me, rubbing like he cared, like he was consoling me."

Tindley said she felt uncomfortable as Filner moved closer and closer. So close, she said, that she nearly fell off the couch trying to move away from him.

"I felt very weird," she said.

...

When asked if she said anything, Tindley replied, "What am I gonna say? You're a congressman. What am I gonna say to you? What am I gonna say to his man? Can he destroy my life, can he stop me from moving forward?"

It gets worse. The National Women's Veteran's Association of America President says that Filner used her organization's pool of women who'd suffered rape and harassment as his own little date-rape pool.

She says there are "seven or eight" such victims.

"He went to dinners, asked women out to dinners, grabbed breasts, buttocks. The full gamut. Everything that is complete violation of what we stand for," Jones said. "He's a sexual predator. And he used this organization for his own personal agenda."

Oh, and here's a commercial by Bill Clinton endorsing then-United States Congressman Filner for mayor.

Of course.
