This guy is a dick and was one long before this scandal hit. I always managed to change the channel fast back then. But now he is everywhere. Seriously one of the most hideous looking faces ever and his dumbass, creepy looking smile. Ugh.

What a creepy-ass phucker

I don't get the due process and that he has a chance to come back into office and stake claim to money

San Diego City Council Sues Mayor Bob Filner



Quote
The San Diego City Council has voted to sue Mayor Bob Filner to recover costs from a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by the mayor's former communications director.

The city attorney's office says the council decided to ask a court to require Filner to pay all damages and attorney fees if he and the city are found liable.

Special Section: Mayor Under Fire

Filner asked the city to cover the cost of his attorney’s fees in a case where he has been accused of sexually harassing former employee Irene McCormack Jackson. The civil charges were brought by high-profile attorney Gloria Allred on behalf of Jackson.

If Filner is found liable, he may not only have to pay his own attorney's fees, but also financial retribution to Jackson – in addition to the city’s legal fees.

Filner has been accused of sexually harassing multiple women, and seven alleged victims have publicly come forward saying he acted inappropriately toward them. He has since publically apologized and said he will enter a two-week intensive therapy program to address his behavior.

The mayor has hired outside legal counsel for this case, after San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said his office would not represent Filner.

“The City of San Diego has sued the Mayor with unanimous City Council approval,” said City Attorney Jan Goldsmith in a statement. “This is part of due process. If Bob Filner engaged in unlawful conduct and the City is held liable, he will have to reimburse us every penny the city pays and its attorney fees.”

Neither the mayor's office nor his private attorney has responded to request for comment to NBC 7 San Diego. His new chief of staff Lee Burdick, a lawyer in her own right, is claiming attorney-client privilege in refusing subpoeanas in the case.

The city attorney's office says she's practicing law in violation of the city charter.

He's already been denied by both the San Diego Court and of course 100's of women.

Real Life Badass: 14 Year Old Pro-Choice Activist Demolishes Haters



14-year old Austinite Tuesday Cain took to the streets with thousands of others to protest Texas' impending legislation that would drastically impact a woman's right to choose in that state and that would close most abortion clinics. She came up with a sign concept that was intended to be provocative and get attention, and it worked. Her message?

Quote
Jesus isn't a dick, so keep him out of my v agina.

 Brilliant. Besides being eye-catchingly clever, it's a nice way of reminding the anti-abortion types that a lot of their behavior wouldn't sit well with their Lord and Savior. Once again, the Christians were being the least Christian people.

When a picture of the sign went viral, the haters came out in a big way on the internet. One of the most popular epithets thrown at this 14-year old girl was '****,' a grotesque word to fling at a child. Today Tuesday gave up her anonymity to write a message to her haters on xojane.com, and I think it's a wonderful piece. This teen has more class and smarts than almost any of the adults who have been flaming her.

Quote
Normally, I prefer to look up to adults as role models. But what is happening in Texas right now it's hard to find adults who I want to look up to.

    I don't look up to an adult who is taking away a woman's right to choose.

    I don't look up to an adult who is calling a 14-year-old girl a w hore.

    I don't look up to an adult who is screaming in my face and saying I am ugly.

    And I certainly don't look up to anyone who says they are Christian but treats women the way I've been treated these past few days as a teenage girl.

Subject: A Lesson in Irony
The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever, to 46 million people.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us, "Please do not feed the animals." Their stated reason for the policy is because, "The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
             
Thus ends today's lesson in irony.

Significant Election Rule Change Coming in 2016?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLaxg2qXlWw

This really isn't news. As soon as Arnie was elected Governor way back when, he has been publicly trying to get the Constitution changed to allow him to run for President. I thought that once his term ran his course and he was done as Governor and back to making movies, I thought his desire to run for Office was also done. Guess not. The only way I would even consider voting for Arnie would be if his platform promised to shoot T5 in the real White House itself. No replicas. ;D

This probably might be as good under Comedy or Music, but fits well under Politics as a reminder...
