Too bad Mayor Filner’s legal fees are the only “large” thing about him.
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is facing yet another lawsuit, this time from his own city.
San Diego is suing its mayor for the costs incurred as a result of the sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by his former communications director Irene McCormack Jackson, according to the Los Angeles Times. The San Diego City Council decided unanimously to file the lawsuit during a closed-door session Tuesday.
McCormack Jackson sued Filner for sexual harassment last week, becoming the first of seven women to come forward publicly to accuse Filner of harassment. Following the allegations and a chorus of calls for his resignation, Filner announced Friday that he would be taking two weeks to undergo intensive therapy starting Aug. 5. However, he has said that he will not resign.
