What is wrong with people that an elected official with a lecherous attitude towards women who work for him is still in office? I am a Democrat and liberal but I do not understand how Mayor Filner of San Diego is still in office after the revelations of his degrading behavior toward female staff members in his office, past and present.
I do believe that people can make amends and be given a second chance. However Mayor Filner is not demonstrating that he can make amends nor deserves to continue as Mayor.
The real problem here is not so much Filner's behavior but that it took the women he demeaned and sexually abused for so long to tell their stories of his abuse. This is still a very real problem for women today, no just that they are sexually abused but that it takes many women being abused by the same person for them to be believed.
By the way if anyone thinks this is only a 'Democrat' problem or a political problem, think again!
