Mayor Filner Press Conference


Update from CNN:

CNN) — San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, publicly accused of sexual harassment by seven women, says he will enter “a behavior counseling clinic for two weeks of intensive therapy” starting August 5.

Seven women have publicly accused Filner of unwanted groping, kissing and other inappropriate contact. Many of the accusations allegedly took place during his five terms in Congress, before he was elected mayor last year.
Filner, 70, admitted to “inappropriate” behavior this month, saying he has “failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me, and that at times I have intimidated them.”
Yet, he has said he will not step down from an office he was elected to barely eight months ago.
“It’s very important that I think we continue with my priorities, that’s what I was elected to do,” Filner said last week. “That’s why I’m not resigning.”

Gee…2 whole weeks huh. Maybe he should give Carlos Danger his therapist’s card. Sounds like he/she is a therapist miracle worker!! Maybe the therapist would give them a 2 fer discount!!

  1. How many hot tubs does this “behavior counseling clinic” have?

  2. LOL Beata! No doubt plenty of hot tubs, golf course? Tennis anyone? Crazy!

  3. Imust, every day it’s a choice between golf or tennis, with a massage afterward.

    “Intensive therapy” is hard!

  4. Maybe we all should sign up for “intensive therapy”! We’re the ones subjected to this circus everyday!

  5. Counseling, schmouseling. He just needs to be neutered.

  6. Aww…, now. He says he’s just a “hugger” that’s all!

    : “I’m a hugger, with both men and women and if it turns out that … those are taken in an offensive manner, I need to have a greater sense of awareness of what I am doing.”

  7. He might try hugging trees.

  8. Off topic and I apologize but since this one of the very few extant feminist sites that I frequent, I want to make a comment about Ariel Castro in Cleveland.
    Before he was sentenced to life plus 1000 years, he said that “pron” had corrupted him. When will people start believing this?
    No excuse for this monster, but I do believe that violent, misogynistic you know what does feed the fuel for freaks like Castro.
    I’m being precious about the P word because I hear the blog mistress can get all kinds of unwanted attention, if I don’t.
    True or false?

  9. Sweet Sue, I’m not sure about the trigger word in question. Have to wait for Uppity to stop by and see if she can answer that for you but I didn’t want to to feel like your question was ignored.
    I read about Castro’s excuse. He also said he was abused as a child. All I know right now is I’m glad he will have to spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole and that those young women will not have to go to court or ever lay eyes on him again.

  10. I hope that whenever Filner unzips his pants, or “hugs” anything, or moves toward another human being his genital get the effing shock of the year EACH TIME. That’s the only 2 weeks worth of behavioral therapy that cane be effective in 2 weeks.
    Yet another a$$hat.
    This has to be the week from sick behavior hell.

  11. Seriously leslie….this has been some kind of week!

  12. If he was aware that those evil forces were causing him to steal other peoples’ children and commit heinous acts with them, he should have returned the girls long ago and worked on his issue. Since he did not, I believe the only cure for him is also neutering. Snip, snip.

    Life + 1000 years? I doubt he’ll survive 6 months in the general population.

  13. Hugo, he has only “retrospective awareness”. You know, the kind that pops up only when you’re standing before a judge begging for mercy.

  14. Oh, you mean he had an epiphany right there in the court room. I guess looking at the next millennium in the joint gives one some real clarity.

  15. This guy is creepy. Very creepy. The quintessential example of misuse of power over women. I hope they class-action his ass to another planet. Fucking pig.

  16. Sweet Sue, personally I think he’s getting off lightly with the thousand years. I don’t really give a crap about his life story, If it was that bad, too bad he didn’t just shoot himself in the head. I am personally sick and tired of feeling sorry for pigs, perverts and defective creatures who punish innocent people, particularly since they are usually women, children and animals. If it were up to me, I’d chain his sorry naked ass in a sound proof room, zip-lock his dick and balls in a plastic bag filled with ground beef, and send in hungry dogs. A video of that would sell well to every woman who was a victim of one of these shitbags, see how THEY like having porn about a man getting his filthy junk maimed going around. They’ve done worse to woman on film,haven’t they, now?

    Sue, sister, I get unwanted attention no matter WHAT I do. That’s because i don’t give out free passes, I don’t give a rat’s butt what party these pigs are in, I hand out no free passes, and I refuse to put the rights of women on the back burner for anybody. Look where that has gotten women? I am not shy about it either. I just drive misogynists and sexist pigs right the hell off this blog. I specialize in the Closet types who try that passive-aggressive bullshit. Trust me, the Porn word is the least of my worries. So not to worry.

    Anyways, Sophie and imust are doing all the work here these days, so THEY are the blog mistresses. And they aren’t shy either.

  17. I have to say I am just outright disgusted by the amount of pigs that are in the political arena and they are on both sides. Why women are not banding together and demanding their removal is beyond me. As for that bastage Castro I have a boatload of things I would love to see happen to him and it would save the taxpayers a lot of $$. But I will not post the horrid things I think out to happen to him. Wiener and that shitbag in SD I could lay out some helpful ways to end their stuff also. The world has to be laughing their asses off at the people we elect and at us. We have become a disgusting joke over here with all our Ntl Enquirer type stories going on here. Disgusting plain out disgusting.

  18. You know, Utah, it’s not as if these pigs actually DO anything truly helpful for woman from Congress — except talk about it at election time. I have no idea why woman protect these swine just because they have D or R after their names. Boggles my mind.

  19. I can remember when Big Dawg was being tried for his sexual behaviors (I know, I know, he was impeached for “lying to Congress” – right). The story was the US was the laughing stock of Europe for caring about his behaviors.
    Now, I don’t care who is laughing at us. I just want the current pigs out of politics and off the planet.
