Statement on Harassment Allegations Against Mayor Filner
Several media outlets today reported on sexual harassment allegations against San Diego Mayor Bob Filner that are due to be detailed in a press conference tomorrow. In the absence of more information, San Diego County Democratic Party Chair Francine Busby has issued the following statement:
"The San Diego County Democratic Party has learned today about harassment claims involving Mayor Bob Filner. I take allegations of sexual harassment very seriously, as does the Democratic Party.
"The information currently available about these claims is not specific, and key questions remain to be answered both by Mayor Filner and those leveling these charges.
"In the meantime, we join other San Diegans in seeking more details and awaiting the Mayor's response."
