Mayor Bob Filner and I have crossed paths on three occasions: once in the Gaslamp and twice in movie theatre lobbies.

Our last encounter took place at Reading Cinemas Town Square. After picking out a ticket, I spotted Filner just as he was exiting one of the auditoriums. I haven't had the guts to speak publicly about the incident until now.

We exchanged pleasantries. It couldn't have lasted more than a minute. Before parting, I extended my hand.

The moment of humiliation arrived in mid-shake. I could have sworn that he tickled the inside of my palm with his middle finger.

It made me feel cheap and dirty.
