Come On, Joe Biden, You Rarely Get Gifts This Generous at Christmas
If Joe Biden can’t demolish Kamala Harris over her lenient deal with former San Diego mayor Bob Filner, then the former veep really has lost a step. From Joe Simonson at the Washington Examiner: In 2013, about 20 women accused Filner, a two-decade Democratic congressman-turned-San Diego mayor, of sexual harassment and misconduct. Some said he put them in “Filner headlocks.” Harris’ office drew considerable criticism in 2013 for allowing Filner to plead guilty to state charges of false imprisonment and battery against three Jane Does in exchange for a light sentence. Filner could have faced up to five years in prison, but the plea bargain instead gave him three months of house arrest, three years’ probation, and partial loss of his mayoral pension.
