In a statement sent to CNN, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said:
“The misconduct Mayor Bob Filner has been accused of is reprehensible and indefensible. I am personally offended by his actions and I firmly believe no employee should face a hostile environment or harassment at their place of employment. There is no place for this type of conduct in the workplace and certainly not in our city halls and public offices.
“For the good of the City of San Diego, I call on Mayor Filner to resign.”
Her statement came hours after the San Diego County party leadership joined the growing chorus calling for Filner’s resignation.
