The attorney for San Diego Mayor Bob Filner placed “some responsibility and potential liability on the City of San Diego” for accusations of sexual harassment because he said the city didn’t provide training.
Filner’s attorney, Harvey Berger, wrote to City Attorney Jan Goldsmith a letter on Monday.
Berger’s letter stated, “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.”
The letter said the mayor’s training was canceled and never rescheduled.
“Therefore, if there is any liability at all, the city will almost certainly be liable,” Berger wrote.
The fact is the mayor is responsible for his own conduct and should spare the San Diego public and taxpayers the expense in recalling his sorry ass out of office.
Come on, Bob, stop the posturing and resign.
