After City Council Proposes Some Level of Indemnification for Liability in Sexual Harassment Suits, Bob Filner Agrees to Resign

In the end, it was mostly about money.

But San Diego has decided they'd rather pay lots of money to Filner's victims than put up with the stench in the mayor's office any longer.

Oh, and two things: First, Victim 18 came forward. Second, he's now being investigated for old-school corruption, too.

A voice message left at a city office appears to suggest a direct link between a $100,000 payment to the city and approval of changes to a Kearny Mesa project.

Mayor Bob Filner vetoed changes to the Sunroad Centrum Partners mixed-use project on May 16, then withdrew his veto the next month.

“I’d like the the council member to know that we have reached an agreement with the mayor’s office,” says the June 7 message to Councilman Kevin Faulconer from a man identifying himself as Sunroad Centrum Partners executive Tom Story. “We have paid him the money that was requested and I was told that the mayor would support the (veto) override.”

Now back to the resignation news:


Under investigation for alleged “pay to play” schemes with developers, Filner disappeared from public view for three weeks and surfaced Monday in time for a mediation session with city officials.

Over three days of negotiations in the downtown San Diego high-rise located just blocks from City Hall, officials reached a deal.

A couple of days ago various union stooges and Democratic hacks and apparatchiks staged what might have been the saddest rally in the world in support of Filner. I wouldn't usually link Buzzfeed, but the rally is so sad and lame and weird that it's worth a watch. (Short video, too.)

Their rallying cry was "due process." But they didn't cry it. They sort of mumbled it in embarrassment.

One speaker seemed to be chagrined that she had not received "sloppy kisses" from Filner.

All in all, it was another banner day for the Party of Shamelessness.
