Veteran’s Group Claims Bob Filner has Sexually Harassed Rape Survivors
A women’s veterans group claimed San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has sexually harassed victims of rape and the group is launching a “Please Resign” campaign.
National Women Veteran’s Association of America President Tara Jones, whose organization reaches out to veteran women who have been sexually assaulted, said in a press conference Wednesday that members of her group have experienced inappropriate behavior from Filner at one of their own events.
Jones, wearing a bright blue shirt that said “Please Resign,” called Filner “a wolf in sheep’s clothing.” She claimed the mayor re-victimizes women who have already been traumatized, and her organization is ashamed.
Jones did not detail what allegedly happened between the women and Filner. She said she personally was not harassed by him, but his actions toward other women is astounding.
“Save yourself honor and resign,” Jones said.
