Did Bob Filner (D) agree to resign if the city of San Diego agreed to cover his legal costs?

I cannot wait to find out tomorrow.

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has agreed to resign as part of a deal reached this week with city officials, NBC 7 News has learned.

Filner, spotted leaving City Hall with packing boxes Wednesday night, will formally vacate the office following a closed session of City Council Friday, according to several sources.

Filner’s attorney has a letter of resignation drafted for his signature upon approval of the tentative settlement by councilmembers.

I’m not the only one who’s wondering that, either.  In fact, I suspect that this may end up being the default assumption.  If so, it’s a perfect description of the current Democratic Establishment: first they Bad Touch you; then they cover it all up; and even if you catch them, they still manage to stick you with the bill.

#DNC to vote on toothless condemnation of Bob Filner. #waronwomen

Rather late to the party, they are.

The Democratic National Committee will vote on a resolution this week calling on San Diego Mayor Bob Filner to resign, ratcheting up pressure on the embattled Democrat who has been accused of sexually harassing multiple women.

You know what would really ratchet up the pressure?  Calling up every Democratic member of Bob Filner’s staff and informing them that they’re now dead to the Democratic party.  Which is why the DNC won’t do that; talk is cheap, but some of Bob Filner’s staffers are undoubtedly progressive males.  There’s a limit to what the Democratic party will do to them.

The war against the Democratic #waronwomen takes to the skies of San Diego!

“SURRENDER BOB.”

More pictures here. This event happened Friday: but I thought that people might enjoy a little amusement for their Sunday mornings.

Tweet of the Day, Hooters Brings The Awesome Down On Bob Filner’s Creepy Head edition.

They refuse to serve Bob Filner.

The funny thing is, I’ve been in a Hooters precisely once in my life; I got nothing against the chain, but I’m both happily married and long out of practice at leering. At this point in my life trajectory I just want the beer and the various fried items and the chance to read my book in peace and quiet and you’ll understand when you’re my age.

Bob Filner was actually quite representative of the incoming 2007 Democratic House leadership.

Breitbart may want to present this without comment

…but I have no intention of following suit.  Let’s look at that list, shall we? (more…)

Two questions for former President Bill Clinton about Bob Filner. #waronwomen

Question One (H/T: Instapundit):

Question Two – because we all know that, in the unlikely event that anybody in the Media ever has the nerve to actually ask that question of Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton will promptly say “No:”

  • Why was former President Clinton not aware?

Why has Bob Filner not been arrested? #waronwomen

Is there not enough evidence by now for a grand jury? Because there are several members of the National Women’s Veterans Association of America (NWVAA) that would no doubt like an answer to those two questions.

Three weeks ago, as women began to step forward to reveal instances of sexual harassment, the veterans at the NWVAA began to compare notes.

Tara Jones, the president of the group, said she’s spoken to seven to eight women who had varying encounters with Filner at the women’s veteran events, from groping to unwanted requests for dates.

“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.”

How long did @NancyPelosi know that Bob Filner (D) was a predator?

Because Bob Filner apparently didn’t start when he became mayor of San Diego:

Lisa Curtin, who is director of government and military education at San Diego City College, is the eighth woman to accuse Filner of unwanted sexual advances.

[snip of allegations of crude sexual advances made towards Ms. Curtin]

Curtin said at the time, neither she nor her staffers reported the incident to authorities because of shock and fear.

“Filner made it very clear how powerful he thought he was,” Curtin said. “He discussed that in the meeting; The kind of authority he had, that he had been pulling strings all over San Diego for many years.”

How many women in Washington DC have similar stories?  And how many of those women are afraid of Washington DC Democrats making their lives hell if they speak out? (more…)

Nancy Pelosi must resign from the House over Bob Filner coverup.

I usually try not to put things that starkly, particularly since a Republican saying that a Democrat needs to resign is going to be (justifiably) taken with a grain of salt, but… this is ridiculous.

“I blew the whistle on [Bob Filner’s sexual harassment] two years ago to the Democratic Party leadership,” former Assemblywoman Lori Saldaña said.

Saldaña said that in summer 2011 six prominent women in local politics, business and education told her that Filner had physically or verbally harassed them. Saldaña had been exploring what turned out to be an unsuccessful bid for Congress and the conversations came in the context of the 2012 elections.

Saldaña said she contacted former [California] party Chairman Jess Durfee with the allegations and Durfee was among a group of Democratic leaders who met with Filner to discuss them that summer. She said nothing happened.
