Just in case you needed more evidence that this public lynching of Filner was planned, here is more ----These amazing Todd Gloria 2013 Mayoral posters circulating for Pride weekend ---- and Filner has not even resigned! Hmmmm, Did someone have a little foresight?
Donna Frye held her Press Conference yesterday asking Filner to step down. Filner, today announced he will welcome a full investigation into the charges and will not be resigning.
Todd said this in regards to Filner:
"As a San Diegan, I am asking Mayor Filner to resign.
"The Mayor and I have had significant disagreements on a wide variety of policy issues. My request for the Mayor's resignation is not based on any of those differences. The severity of these allegations, and the legal and financial risk they pose to the City and the taxpayers, cannot be ignored or understated. Our City government cannot maintain the full faith and trust of the people of San Diego if Mayor Filner continues to serve in this office.
Finally, as the Council President, I know how difficult it will be to accomplish the critical business of the City if the Mayor does not step down. We must quickly restore trust in San Diego and its leaders. I look forward to working with my colleagues on the City Council to lead San Diego through this difficult time."
Really Todd? Does it have anything to do with these big glossy posters of your 2013 mayoral run that were coincidentally already printed today when you made this statement?
Was this all planned far in advance and Todd knew he would be replacing Filner? After all the Republicans announced yesterday that they just happen to have been following Filner with cameras -- I believe a precursor to lay groundwork for WHY they have Filner's misconduct on video.
Filner must stay strong and allow the Republicans to present their evidence so we can review the evidence to see if it appears to be a set up or if it appears to be organic.
The players appear to be in a frenzied panic to get Filner to resign ASAP and I suspect it's because they do not want their evidence to be vetted. Why have the women refused to file their complaints officially? Is it possible they were working under assumed names? Do they have a connection to the Republican Private Investigator who was following Filner? I think we have a right to know.
Why the big rush to judgment? Can't we wait a little bit and see what emerges? There is a lot at stake and we are being bullied by our government that is desperate to restore power to the old power-brokers that Filner kicked out of City Hall.
No doubt a deal has already been struck behind the scenes to make Gloria mayor. In fact I would submit that the Republican candidate will just be a place holder not intended to win. Why would they need a Republican when they have Todd?
