Great-Grandmother Accuses Mayor Bob Filner Of Sexual Harassment

Source: ABC 10 News

SAN DIEGO – A great-grandmother will hold a news conference with attorney Gloria Allred Thursday afternoon, alleging she is a sexual harassment victim of Mayor Bob Filner.

A news release stated the senior citizen was the “victim of continuous inappropriate sexual advances by the Mayor while trying to do her job at City Hall.”

Allred said the woman worked at the Senior Citizens Service Desk in the lobby of the City Administration Building.

The release said both Allred and the great-grandmother would address the media at 1:00 p.m. at the Westin in downtown San Diego.

The release also said Allred was the woman’s attorney, but it was not yet clear if the woman would be filing a lawsuit against Filner. If so, that would be the second sexual harassment lawsuit against the mayor — the first was filed by Filner’s former communications director Irene McCormack Jackson.
