This one happened just three months ago.
(CNN) — Another woman has come forward to accuse San Diego Mayor Bob Filner of sexual harassment.
Businesswoman Dianne York told CNN that Filner put his hands on her buttocks during a photo opportunity that followed a meeting three months ago. York said there were witnesses to what happened. She said both her advisers and Filner’s were in the room at the time.
York is the 18th woman to accuse Filner of improper conduct. One woman said Filner gave her “tush a pat.” Another said he “put me in what I guess now is the famous headlock” and tried “to kiss me on the lips and I’d have to squirm to get away.”
Filner’s former communication director, Irene McCormack Jackson, quit her job and sued the mayor in July, saying he subjected women to “crude and disgusting” comments and inappropriate touching.
