SAN DIEGO, CA – San Diego’s political lounge lizard, former mayor Filthy Bob Filner, has been courting this week, but not in the way he likes.
Filthy Bob got his nickname because of his touchy-feely way with women. Now, he will spend the first three months of 2014 in home confinement and then three years on probation.
It’s all part of a deal that keeps him out of prison after pleading guilty to kissing or grabbing women at campaign events or in city hall.
But the ink wasn’t dry on the judge’s order before parks and recreation manager Stacy McKenzie filed her own sexual harassment suit against him and the city.
McKenzie’s suit comes with animation that’s supposed to show her creepy conversation with Filthy Bob in a park back in April. She says things got really weird after she accepted an offer to go to lunch, which he told her was not a lunch, but a date.
McKenzie says that while she was telling two park rangers about the encounter, Filthy Bob came up behind her and began touching and rubbing up against her, saying he was mentoring her and thinking about making her the city’s employee of the day.
Filthy Bob apparently didn’t get to park and ride, but McKenzie would like to get a half-million bucks out of the deal. Or is that “ordeal”?
