More Accusations against San Diego Mayor Bob Filner Thirteen women have now publicly accused San Diego Mayor Bob Filner of sexual harassment and making unwanted advances. A nurse who'd asked the former Congressman to help a marine dealing with the Veterans Administration told reporters yesterday that Filner implied he'd help her – in exchange for a date. Today, two members of the National Women's Veterans Association of America said Filner was overly touchy-feely and even asked one of them out on a date – after they'd given speeches about being raped in the military. Sandhya Dirks, metro reporter with KPBS in San Diego, has been covering the scandal.
