Bob Filner, the Mayor of San Diego, has been accused by several women of sexual harassment and his lawyer, Harvey Berger — quite possibly one of the most inane attorneys ever — says he knows who is to blame: The City of San Diego.
Yes, it’s the city’s fault that Filner sexually harasses women because the city didn't provide training:
"The city has a legal obligation to provide sexual harassment training to all management level employees, and to provide such training to new managers within six (6) months of hire ... The city failed to provide such training to Mayor Filner. … Therefore, if there is any liability at all, the city will almost certainly be liable.”The letter said the mayor's training was canceled and never rescheduled, so, it’s not his fault he grabs women's asses because no one told him it was wrong. Then Berger quotes Bob Dylan:
"Many might argue that 'you don't need a weatherperson [sic] to tell you which way the wind blows,' and an adult male should not need sexual harassment training. I would point out that in his decades of public service for the people of San Diego as a U.S. Representative, Mayor Filner never received sexual harassment training."Filner's penchant for treating women like his personal sexual playthings was never addressed; he was never slapped on the snout with a rolled up newspaper so he gets a free pass.
Republican Democrat, y’all, taking zero responsibility for their
behavior because no one told him it was wrong; he's acting like a member of the GOP!
