"Where do you think I learned the Filner headlock?"
Responding to charges from Marilyn Monroe impersonator Emily Gilbert that he grabbed her derriere, Mayor Filner said, "All my life, I have striven to emulate the ideals and character of that great Democrat, John F. Kennedy. So when a Marilyn approached me, I asked myself, 'What would JFK do?' The answer was clear. Of course, I'm not JFK, so I didn't actually do that. But then, she wasn't really Marilyn, either. So I just made a token gesture - a symbolic squeeze. Frankly, I think I was pretty restrained on this one."
