California Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) on Sunday called for San Diego mayor Bob Filner (D) to resign as a result of sexual harassment allegations made against him by several women.
Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union, Feinstein said, “Of all people, Bob Filner knows what public life is like. He served a time in the House.”
“Being mayor of a big city, you’re a role model for people,” she continued. “I don’t think that somebody who is lacking a moral compass really sets a role model or really will provide the kind of leadership that San Diegans want...This kind of absence of a moral compass is subject to recall.”
She concluded, “I think he should make it easier and resign.”
