Another Proud Moment in Democratic History… Lib Mayor Filner Groped and Kissed Great-Grandmother, Too
A new–and, depending on who’s counting, fifteenth or sixteenth–alleged sexual harassment victim of San Diego’s Democratic mayor, Bob Filner, came forward at a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred on Thursday afternoon in downtown San Diego.
The woman, Peggy Shannon, is a 67-year-old great-grandmother who alleges that Filner harassed her during her part-time work at a desk in the lobby of City Hall, where she worked assisting senior citizens seeking city services.
Local journalists, who greeted the initial accusations against Filner earlier in the summer with great interest, showed a degree of fatigue in the minutes before the conference. They perked up, however, as Shannon walked slowly into the room wearing a colorful purple-and-blue blouse with a powder-blue scarf and using a steel cane. A few gasps were heard.
“Apparently the mayor is no respector of age,” Allred quipped. “Women appear to be considered her sexual playthings. Is the City Hall his sexual playground?”
According to Shannon and Allred, Filner had frequently used flirtatious language with Shannon, and had hugged and kissed her on the lips at work without permission in January, shortly after he had taken office.
