In a stunning turn of events, San Diego Mayor Bob Filner not only refuses to step down amid charges of sexual harassment, he is asserting that the city needs to pay his legal defense, because they never trained him hownot to sexually harass women.

A letter from Filner’s attorney said the city “failed to provide [sexual harassment]training to Mayor Filner,” and in this case, “if there is any liability at all, the city will almost certainly be liable for ‘failing to prevent sexual harassment.’”

The result is that the San Diego City Council has agreed unanimously to sue Filner for the costs of the sexual harassment lawsuit, despite the letter’s assertion that the city is responsible for the mayor not knowing what constitutes sexual harassment.
