It’s no secret that Mayor Bob Filner has his enemies on the right. They didn’t like him as a congressman. They tried to raise fear about what he would be like as mayor.
And they sure don’t like him now.
They’ve attacked him. Caricatured him. They have stoked rumors of a recall effort.
But a recall is hard. It’s also a risky investment. Collecting more than a 100,000 signatures in only a few weeks would take millions of dollars – and all for a wildly uncertain outcome.
