Filner's Old Boss Let Scandal Drag on for Two Years

San Diego Union Tribune: "In the 1980s, Bob Filner worked for a congressman from San Diego who had his own sexual harassment scandal. And if the case of Rep. Jim Bates offers a road map, any end game for Filner could play out for months or more."

"Even after allegations surfaced in 1988 that Bates had sexually harassed multiple women in his office, patting their buttocks and commenting on their breasts, it took more than two years -- and two more elections -- for Bates to leave office."
