Why has Bob Filner not been arrested? #waronwomen

Is there not enough evidence by now for a grand jury? Because there are several members of the National Women’s Veterans Association of America (NWVAA) that would no doubt like an answer to those two questions.

Three weeks ago, as women began to step forward to reveal instances of sexual harassment, the veterans at the NWVAA began to compare notes.

Tara Jones, the president of the group, said she’s spoken to seven to eight women who had varying encounters with Filner at the women’s veteran events, from groping to unwanted requests for dates.

“He went to dinners, asked women out to dinners, grabbed breasts, buttocks. The full gamut. Everything that is complete violation of what we stand for,” Jones said. “He’s a sexual predator. And he used this organization for his own personal agenda.”

Keep in mind that most of the women in question were victims of sexual assault; also keep in mind that at least some of these incidents occurred when Bob Filner was at least the Ranking Member of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee. The first point indicates that, if true, Bob Filner is at best one step removed from being a sociopath; the second indicates that, again if true, Nancy Pelosi is at best a gullible incompetent that needs to resign her office immediately in sheer shame, and at worst a willing co-conspirator in Filner’s sexual predation.

I have nothing but contempt for any Democrat who covered this up. I understand that people have difficulty with serial monogamy; and I understand that coworkers are reluctant to get involved in somebody else’s affair. But this is grotesque.

…I almost wrote ‘intolerable;’ but apparently it’s perfectly tolerable to the Democratic Party.
