Former Assemblywoman Lori Saldana, a Democrat, says she told California Democrat Party leaders about San Diego Mayor Bob Filner’s habit of groping and sexually harassing women two years ago. The party covered it all up.

Saldaña said that in summer 2011 six prominent women in local politics, business and education told her that Filner had physically or verbally harassed them. Saldaña had been exploring what turned out to be an unsuccessful bid for Congress and the conversations came in the context of the 2012 elections.

Saldaña said she contacted former party Chairman Jess Durfee with the allegations and Durfee was among a group of Democratic leaders who met with Filner to discuss them that summer. She said nothing happened.

“As disgraceful as Bob’s behavior has been, it’s been tolerated by our Democratic Party leadership,” she said.

Party leaders, she said, made it clear that if people didn’t support Filner they wouldn’t receive their support again.

Gotta wonder where the national media are on this. And the Emily’s List/NOW/NARAL crowd. It’s a real Sherlock Holmes mystery.

It is a complete mystery as to why some things constitute a "war on women", while similar conduct from someone else is not considered such. It sure is confusing.

Its simple really. If you are a repub, then you are automatically anti woman, no matter how well you personally treat women, but if you are a pro abortion pro free birth control dem, then you are pro women, no matter how contemptously you treat any real women you meet. see with most feminist groups today, its no longer about protecting real women, it is about protecting the dem party and the narrative.
