Maybe if San Diego Mayor Bob Filner had a funnier name — Weiner, perhaps — there would be more headlines about the four women who came forward just today to accuse him of making unwanted sexual advances. Democrat Filner says he’s “saddened” by the charges against him, which include allegations that he fondled, groped, and caught women in what accuser Patti Roscoe described as the “famous headlock.”

Certainly the (D) next to Filner’s name provides some insulation from media scrutiny, but doesn’t the “war on women” label apply here? Ace has some questions about the misunderstood mayor who just liked to hug too much.

Time for a hashtag?

But seriously, folks.

Democrat city council members and others who preferred to look the other way are now admitting Filner is “toxic” and urging him to resign, though Filner told reporters today, “Let’s take a deep breath, let that process work itself out. Meanwhile, we got a city to run.”  Surely there’s a better place for a man of Filner’s talents, right?

    I, for one, am glad that Ace is on top of these DNC shenanigans. Someone responsible needs to wade into their cesspool.

  • Grumpycarguy

    Ace, I love ya, but this pick-up line:

    “#BobFilnerPickUpLines Baby I’m gon’ fill you up with Industrial Policy”

    is clearly fake. There hasn’t been any industrial policy in San Diego for 20 years.

    Father of the Year and left wing hero Billy Jeff Clinton got away with all kinds of sexual harassment. But he was their Big Bubba.

    I’m kind of surprised that the left isn’t throwing this pee-on mayor under the bus. He’s no party big shot, what do they have to lose?

    The lesson here is that the left cannot be counted on to do the right thing, under any circumstances. It’s always party politics first with them.

      The way I see it, the Dems have their tenuous control on one of the more conservative large cities in California threatened. They lose Filner, they might not get it back any time soon. It shouldn’t come as any surprise that Pelosi has said “move on- nothing to see here”.

    Take a look at Filner. Do you think he could get a date “legitimately”, other than threatening women with the possible loss of their job?

    If a staff member from Boehner’s office remarked to a young lady, “you look cute in that dress,” the GOP would lose 50 seats in 2014 because the democrats know how to scream. The Dems get away with far worse garbage because the GOP is scared of appearing partisan.

    It’s not the MSM. It’s the Right allowing the Left to lay down the rules of engagement. FNC has a far larger audience than MSNBC and CNN combined, Rush is bigger than all the lefty radio shows combined… But the left still controls the field of debate, because we let them. The GOP is scared of being called names. That truth is behind 90% of the caves in congress.

    • Burn_the_Witch

      FNC may have a larger audience than MSNBC and CNN combined, but not MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, NPR, HLN, MTV, or even ESPN. Rush may dwarf all talk radio from the left, but how much overlap is there with FNC viewers? Then factor in print media and their online presence and its radical left masters and Rush is dwarfed.

      It IS the media. The left lays down the rules of engagement through their media lackeys. I agree that the right doesn’t know how to play the game, but the decked is stacked against them from the get-go.

    SAN DIEGO — In the wake of allegations of sexual harassment at City Hall, San Diego Mayor Bob Filner will not meet alone with women in the course of his duties, City Attorney Jan Goldsmith told Fox 5.
    You cant make this up – instead of demanding his job, they assign a baby-sitter. WTF?

    How about you earn your pay the old fashioned way, the oldest fashion way.

    All I can say is thank goodness that Filner didn’t email innocent notes to any of these women. I have a feeling that when the msm finally has to report on this, MSDNC will put an R after Filner’s name.

    If he really wants to avoid scrutiny he should change his name to Ben Ghazi

      Man, that Ben Ghazi line keeps popping up all over – I suspect it’ll stick around a good while.

        It could be over tomorrow if the media would give it the proper amount of coverage…..l’m not holding my breath.

    Accusing a Democrat of sexual misconduct is like accusing a conservative of believing in God. It may look bad to the opposition but looks fine to the allies.

    The guy should resign and jump into the NYC mayoral race while there’s still time.

    Looks like he gave these women the full Bill Clinton.
    In fairness this happened behind closed doors between a consenting democrat politician and a terrified woman. Any journalism school will tell you this is a non-story.
    Its only when a republican wants to bring abortion clinic health and safety standards up to the level applied to nail salons that any “war on women” starts.

    Look, there is no offense here. After each woman said “no,” he asked again, stopped, released his grip from their various organs, let them out of the headlock, and moved on to the next one. Democrats get the first one free, with an unlimited number of first ones. See? No problem.
