San Diego Democrats call on mayor to resign over sexual misconduct claims

The San Diego County Democratic Party voted 34-6 Thursday in its second meeting in a week to discuss the claims.

    Since no mention of a wife has been made in relation to this ongoing story, I assume Mr. Mayor is single. Hmm.

    On the one hand, the correct thing to do. But many of these Democrats supported Filner for mayor while knowing about his predilections. Councilwoman Donna Frye has admitted as much.

    Democrats in my town have always been weak; this whole mess will make them weaker. Nice going. 🙁
