Just two weeks ago, in the wake of the resignation of two top aides, Mayor Bob Filner said he’d reflect on how he was treating his staff.
“Clearly, anybody who’s intelligent would have to undergo some self-examination,” Filner said.
This week, many of Filner’s top progressive allies said that his behavior, particularly toward women, has become irredeemable.
“I have recently received credible evidence of more than one woman being sexually harassed by you,” former City Councilwoman Donna Frye wrote in a letter to Filner Tuesday, first reported by KPBS. Frye was Filner’s first hire in the mayor’s office; she left in April.
