What a scumbag.
San Diego mayor Bob Filner now has an eleventh accuser — a woman who alleges he sexually harassed her when she went to ask him to aid a Marine who’d endured a brain injury and post-traumatic-stress disorder during her service in Iraq.
CBS 8 reports that Michelle Tyler, a licensed vocational nurse, accused Filner of harassing her in the mayor’s office on June 11, about a month before the mayor’s former communications director filed a lawsuit accusing the mayor of harassment and making his behavior public.
Attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Filner’s original accuser too, explained that the nurse had originally gone to Filner when he was a congressman seeking help for for Katherine Ragazzino, the Marine, who was ensnared in some Veterans Administration red tape.
Allred said that when Tyler returned along with Ragazzino in mid June to ask the now-mayor for help, the mayor appeared willing to help “but at a price.”
“In other words, Mayor Filner wanted Ms. Tyler to help him fulfill his sexual needs if she wanted his help for a deserving war veteran,” Allred said.
