A lawyer for embattled San Diego Mayor Bob Filner argues the city should fund his defence as it failed to give him anti-sexual harassment training.
"This is not an excuse for any inappropriate behavior which may have occurred," the lawyer wrote, "but having conducted sexual harassment training many times over the years, I have learned that many - if not most - people do not know what is and what is not illegal sexual harassment under California law."
What the heck was up with that?
|This was his last desperate chance to fund his defense.:||9 (26.5%)|
|He's pissed off he got caught and this is just him throwing a tantrum.:||6 (17.6%)|
|He's dumb as rocks.:||5 (14.7%)|
|Politics; this is the best way his team could come up with to put a little doubt in the public's mind.:||3 (8.8%)|
Really? I'm not sure what to say. As in, do you really want us to believe you had no idea what you were doing was wrong? Or were you seriously interested in pushing things as far as you could, and aren't happy you didn't know where the line in the sand was? And that's somehow the city's fault? Why do something immoral even if it isn't technically illegal?
Looks like he's fighting this thing a little while longer at least. Politicians...
