Monstrous Harasser Filner Persistently Bothered Great Grandmother Under His Employ; City Eyes Straight Impeachment Rather Than Recall

I like that Allah quashed the "GGILF" giggling here; that's not the point, as he writes.

This news comes packaged with an extra frisson of shamefulness because of her age, but it really shouldn’t. The implication is that it’s kinda sorta understandable that he was coming on to younger women whereas coming on to a great-granny is capital-w Weird. I think that misses the point of what this guy is, allegedly, guilty of. He wasn’t “coming on” to people, like a random person at a bar might do; he was using his status as mayor to pressure women, supposedly in great volume and sometimes with unwanted physical contact, who worked for him and with him into socializing with him. Given the freakish tenacity which he’s clung to his office, it seems like the power stroke he got from all of this was at least as exciting as the prospect of sex.

You know, and I'm not trying to be funny here, there is that old saying that if you just constantly ask women for sex, ten times a day, one or more will say yes. He appears to be employing that strategy, which presents a major problem: He is not propositioning equals as he might find at a purely social event. He is specifically targeting women with business before the Congress or now the city of San Diego. They are free to say no... but not quite as free as we might like.

Certainly they're not free to complain -- not if they value their jobs in the corrupt Democratic bureaucratic-political matrix.

I'm wondering if this guy found this these sorts of come ons worked for him as a younger man, with hippie chicks -- "Hey baby, I was a Freedom Rider, wanna do it?" -- and is now trying to reassure himself he's still got "It." (Which he never did but whatever.)

It seems very strange to me that this guy doesn't even seek to establish a basic rapport with a woman before bothering her.

Also at Allah's post, the city is looking into the possibility he used a city credit card for illicit purposes. If so, they can impeach him -- well, it's not called impeachment, but the city council may remove him.

According to the memo, the city council asked the city attorney to look at the charter and determine if there is a process on how to impeach elected officers. While there is no such provision, the City Council can still remove someone from office under Section 108 of the charter, the memo stated.

Charter Section 108 says that “every City officer who willfully approves or allows unauthorized payments from City treasury is subject to removal from office,” according to the memo.

Corrected: Great-grandmother, not just grandmother.

I suppose one could easily be a grandmother at age 40, or younger.
