Yep, you read it right, of course, as RS McCain points out, the mayor’s heart is in the right place, and his hands? Well, let’s just say the ladies better watch out for Mr. Happy Hands, and his tongue too
I’d call this assault.
A city councilwoman and two lawyers, formerly allies of the mayor, held a press conference to air the charges lodged against Mayor Filner by a variety of women.
Former ally Briggs wrote that he must now turn on Filner, because his behavior is no mere slip-up or minor transgression, but consists of “hard core” violations.
In the Mayor’s office, there was something known as the “Filner headlock” where the Mayor puts his arm around a woman’s shoulder, pulls her in tight, gets in close to their face, asks about husband/boyfriend, says things like “you know you love me, lets go up to my office, no one will know.”Donna Frye described other specifics about a victim: “He grabbed her, kissed her, jamming his tongue down her throat.” Frye went on to describe another encounter: “The Mayor quickly had his hand down the inside of her bra.”
“I am the Mayor you can’t kick me out of any office” one employee of Filner allegedly said after she kicked him out of her office for his unwanted advances.
The allies-turned-accusers are trying to get the lecherous old monster to step down without having the women to come forward and make the allegations themselves. Of course, that won’t happen; he’s a Democrat, and a union stooge to boot. So we’re talking about the sort of retrograde, cynical, old-time machine politics mentality here where everything is fair game for your tribe that we usually don’t see nowadays, at least not outside the national government.
Double standards my friends double standards. Feminists rail against Republicans for being pro-life, but look the other way when a Democrat assaults women and treats them like pieces of meat. As I have noted before, this is how Liberals define morality. If you support Liberal ideals, you are moral, and excused from the way you behave, no matter how nasty that may be. If you oppose Liberal ideals on the other hand, you are immoral, period!
