I really thought that Bob Filner had more integrity than this... (sarcasm)

Via the WashingtonTimes:

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner’s resignation deal is only effective if the City Council agrees to pay all his legal fees and any settlements that might stem from his numerous sexual harassment charges — a trade-off that could cost taxpayers big bucks, a local media outlet reported.

The Los Angeles Times predicted such an agreement could mean taxpayers get stuck with several hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal bills. That aspect of the deal was just released — about the same time his ex-fiancee offered this reaction to Mr. Filner’s alleged harassment of 18 women: “I don’t think it has anything to do with sex or love,” Bronwyn Ingram said to CBS. “I think it has to do with power and control.”

The San Diego City Council is set to vote Friday on the terms of the agreement.
