    •  Just a couple of months ago there were no (7+ / 0-)

      public accusers and now the number is up to something like 18. I find it hard to imagine that Democratic Party officials didn't know what Filner was really like, but the story wasn't public so voters had no way of knowing about it when they put Filner in office last November.

      I don't blame the women who were harassed for not coming forward earlier, because nobody wants to be the first public accuser, but the way the party handled this situation does not look good.

    •  I doubt it. (0+ / 0-)

      Voice of San Diego had pretty convincingly reported that the local party knew about Filter's behavior with women before they threw their support behind him,  and nobody had the balls to do anything about it.

      Like telling him "if you run, I'm dropping the dime."

      They had to know if would come out... It always does. But, due to a lack of guts, they've just screwed the San Diego Democratic Party for years.

      Douchebags,  all of them.
