STATEMENT OF ASSEMBLY MAJORITY LEADER TONI ATKINS ON FILING OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT SUIT AGAINST SAN DIEGO MAYOR BOB FILNER
Irene McCormack, who today sued Mayor Bob Filner for sexual harassment, is a respected professional in our community. I applaud her bravery in coming forward.
I want to encourage any other woman who believes she has been harassed by the Mayor to report their complaints to the hotline established by the San Diego County Sheriff at 619-481-0220. In addition, any woman who needs assistance and support with sexual harassment or assault can get help from the Center for Community Solutions at their 24-hour crisis hotline at 1-888-385-4657.
