Last month during an interview with Rafael Castellanos on our podcast, Scott Lewis asked him about a case he said he was glad to finally discuss openly. Castellanos is running for city attorney in San Diego, and he said that his rivals were spreading rumors about a sexual harassment allegation he faced. Castellanos said he was happy to clear it up.
The allegations, of course, raised a red flag, after the drama and debacle of Bob Filner’s brief term as mayor.
An attorney from Castellanos’ former firm claimed, among other things, that she had an uncomfortable sexual encounter with him and when she complained about it she was forced out of the firm.
Castellanos replied that her claims were a lie – and that the public record from the case proves it.
