SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego taxpayers could be on the hook for $4 million if the city settles all claims involving the actions of former Mayor Bob Filner, who has been sentenced to home confinement for the unwanted groping of women.
U-T San Diego, which has obtained nine claims filed against the city, saysamong those seeking money is the National Women Veterans Association of America.
The group hopes to recoup more than $100,000 for an event at which Filner was to be presented a lifetime achievement award.
Some women's veterans group (veteran what? What are they "veterans" at? Bitching?) is suing this ex-mayor as well. Are they saying that sexual harassment is worse than front line duty? But then again what women are on the front lines of a war in combat positions? None. Those that are thrown into hell's fury of war are always men as they have always been men. We often hear about how women prostitute themselves for promotions or the get out of hazardous duty. That shouldn't be too surprising. A few nights ago I was watching Hannity,he had a liberal female and a conservative female talk about gender issues but when it came down to it they were both women firsters. IOW women's issues trumped everything else. It's like I always said: feminism has two wings: a right conservative one and a left liberal one. Or we can paraphrase the Who's Won't Get Fooled Again: meet the right wing feminist same as the left wing feminist. But the main thing is that men don't get fooled again.
