Burying The Lede in an Update: New Chair of San Diego Democrats Said They Looked at Filner's 30 Year History In Supporting Progressive Issues In Deciding to Give Him a Pass

See the update.

The Democrat Party admits it. But try getting the media to share this level of candor.

Busby responded to tell me that party leaders looked at Filner’s 30-year record of advocating for progressive causes when evaluating him as a candidate for mayor.

So what's a little War on Women between ideological friends? They say these allegations did not "rise above a rumor," which is false-- the deputy mayor of Escondido stated on the record (and went to former head of the party Jess Durfee) that Filner had rudely propositioned her at a professional political event.

This, in turn, lends credence to the other "rumors," which, at this time, consisted of eight different women accusing him, albeit anonymously.

And how deep was their investigation into these charges?

Well, very deep. They busted out the old Dragnet. By which I mean they asked Filner himself about them:

Former Democratic Party Chairman Jess Durfee confirmed to U-T San Diego that Saldańa complained to him about Filner’s conduct. “He assured me there was nothing to be concerned about,” Durfee told the U-T.

Oh well there you go. Carry on then.


Thanks to @starchambermaid.

Donzo: I'm done with the Filner story. I did what I could. No one's interested.

Fine.
