He was against groping before he was groping women in public.
Rep. Bob Filner (D-CA) spoke out against sexual harassment on the House floor in 2011.
This was before he was elected mayor in 2012.
In 2011 the Democratic party was alerted that Filner was accused of inappropriate contact with several women.
Charles Johnson at The Daily Caller reported:
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner once called for anyone involved in sexual harassment in the military to be terminated, defended Bill Clinton against accusations of sexual harassment and reminded voters of his opponent’s sexual improprieties.
Filner, who returns to office this week after checking himself out of sexual harassment training early, has been dogged by allegations that he sexually assaulted or harassed more than dozen women. According to the local ABC affiliate, Filner, the city attorney and a lawyer for some of his alleged victims spent Monday in a mediation conference, and the mayor may be considering resigning soon.
Yesterday Democrats rallied for Bob Filner in San Diego.
