San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has defiantly clung to his job despite numerous accusations of sexual harassment and a lawsuit from his own city. Now another woman is adding to the charges against him; the eighth person to accuse him of similar misconduct.
Lisa Curtin, an official at San Diego City College, says that Filner made inappropriate advances toward her in 2011, when was Filner was serving in Congress. Curtin met with Filner is his office to discuss a business matter and during the brief meeting he flirted with her, touched her hand, and asked if she would go out with him even though he was aware she was married. Then, even after she rebuffed him, he tried to kiss her. Curtin says "I turned my head at that moment and on the side of my face, I got a very wet, saliva-filled kiss including feeling his tongue on my cheek."
Curtin says she contacted the San Diego County Sheriff's Department after they set up a hotline for people to report complaints against Filner. Seven other women have already come forward to make allegations of unwanted advances, kissing, and other inappropriate behavior by the mayor who has been in office less than year.
