San Diego Mayor Bob “Filthy” Filner Resigns … Plays the Victim and Blames “Media, their Political Agents & Lynch Mobs” … Not the Fact he was a Serial Sexual Harasser
GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH … UNBELIEVABLE RESIGNATION SPEECH BY SERIAL MISOGYNIST BOB FILNER.
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner resigns and gives a speech that shows what a pathetic and miserable individual he truly is. His resignation is effective August 30, however, it can’t come soon enough. After he said that he takes responsibility for his disgusting actions, he then played the victim cared and put the blame on the”media and their political agents”. Good grief.
Filner even went so far as to say the following reprehensible comment that there was “a lynch mob mentality, rumors become allegations, allegations become facts, facts become evidence of sexual harassment which have led to demands of my resignation and recall.” Filner went on to say that he faced “a lynch mob”. Sorry Bob, but you faced your disgusting behavior. And if you claim you did nothing wrong, why are you apologizing and why did you go to rehab? From what it sounds like, this Democrat politician is saying that the multitude of woman who have come forward to say that they were sexual harassed by Filner are lying. Is that you you are saying Bob? BTW, everyone wanted you out, especially Democrats who had egg on their face with their talking points of the GOP war on woman when they had a serial misogynist in their midst.
Transcript from the Washington Free Beacon:
BOB FILNER: [...] Now I have to caution the council about one thing, the city. I started my political career facing lynch mobs. I think we have just faced one here in San Diego. You are going to have to deal with that. A lynch mob mentality, rumors become allegations, allegations become facts, facts become evidence of sexual harassment which have led to demands of my resignation and recall. Not one allegation, members of the council, has been verified or proven in court. I have never sexually harassed anyone. But the hysteria that has been created and many of you helped defeat is the hysteria of a lynch mob. Now, as I said I faced lynch mobs many times when I was younger. No evidence was needed. The mob knew who was guilty. Who needed due process? Ladies and gentlemen, democracy needs due process. San Diego needs due process. Those of you in the media and politics who fed this hysteria, I think need to look at what you helped do because you have unleashed a monster. I think we will pay for this, a front to democracy for a long time. Now the hysteria plays into the hands of those who want a political coup. The removal of a democratically elected mayor purely by rumor. Now I am responsible for providing ammunition. I did that. I take full responsibility. But they are who pointed the gun. And the media and their political agents pulled the trigger. That, ladies and gentlemen, is not what democracy is about. I was elected to make changes. People opposed me from the beginning. They found the weapons they needed in my own failures as a human being, but they found those weapons and they used them in a bloody and vicious way. So, you’re going to have to deal with that, if you care about democracy. What I would like to leave you with is what I started my campaign on, and that is a vision of what this city ought to be and what we can become. [...]
Hey Bob, don’t ask for things they might just come true. Trust me, there will be criminal and civil investigations into your conduct and you will be spending the next 10 years in court for your actions. Just wow. After reading that denial speech my suggestion to Filner is that you go back into therapy permanently. What a drama queen. These people think that they are so important and their visions are so important, that they are about the law and moral conduct. Sick, sick, sick.
Weasel Zippers says, good grief, just leave already … “Oh please. “Well organized interests” out to take down democracy and push a coup to take Filner out? He says he will keep pushing for a “progressive world”. Well organized interests and a lynch mob forced this perv out of office, really? His actions were so sleazy and in such mass that even DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz long with California US Senators Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer asked him to resign. Were they part of the “lynch mob” as well?
