An employee of the city of San Diego — who is also a great-grandmother — has come forward and accused Bob Filner of sexual harassment, joining more than a dozen other women who have made allegations against the mayor.
The woman claims she was a ”victim of continuous inappropriate sexual advances by the Mayor while trying to do her job at City Hall,” according to 10News.com. A news conference is scheduled for Thursday with her attorney, Gloria Allred, though the press release on the allegations did not say whether or not she would sue.
Earlier Thursday, a fifteenth woman came forward with sexual harassment allegations against Filner. Kathryn Vaughn, an attorney, told KFMB that the incident occurred more than a decade ago. “He came up to me and I had a very uncomfortable moment with him. And at the time, I froze and looked around for my husband and there were a lot of other people in the room,” said Vaughn.
“He made an inappropriate movement on my body, yes,” she added.
