Palace coup? Filner could be locked out

Would be charged with creating "hostile workplace"

Monday -- or perhaps a later date -- could be critical for Mayor Bob Filner, according to excellent inside sources. It appears that an intergovernmental palace coup is underway.

Today (Aug. 15), a great-grandmother, in an extremely bizarre appearance with attorney Gloria Allred, claimed that Filner harassed her. She felt depressed and anxious every time she went to work. Her photo is in today's Union-Tribune.

It appears her complaint will be used as the basis of an injunction against Filner on the grounds that he creates a hostile workplace. He would be locked out, according to plans.

The various governmental agencies that have been planning to file charges against him would then present him with their deal: presumably, he could accept it or resign. If he did not accept the deal, he could probably be wiped out financially. Now, Monday could be D-Day (decision day) for him.

It also appears that the individual or individuals listening in on conversations in Chief of Staff Lee Burdick's office from the Westgate Hotel were from a governmental agency. The police apparently won't pursue an investigation -- supposedly because it would cost too much.

This is a likely scenario, and we will watch it if plays out. If there is this close intergovernmental cooperation, it is essential that details be revealed.
