Another Complaint About Filner Filed With State Agency
Posted August 14th, 2013 @ 5:58pm

The state Department of Fair Employment and Housing confirmed Wednesday that another complaint has been filed against Mayor Bob Filner.

The complaint, which is employment-related, was filed on Aug. 7. No additional details were released because the complaint is under investigation.

So far, at least 14 women have accused Filner of sexual harassment, ranging accusations of unwanted advances to groping and kissing. He has apologized for mistreating women and sought treatment at a behavioral treatment center, but has denied that his actions constitute sexual harassment.

The list of alleged victims includes two municipal employees, including McCormack Jackson, who is being represented by Los Angeles women's rights attorney Gloria Allred and has sued Filner and the city, and two women who said Filner made passes at them last year at a meeting of veterans who were raped in the military. One of the complainants is a retired rear admiral.
