Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign biography rests heavily on her career as a prosecutor, including six years as California attorney general. But it omits a plea deal her office negotiated for former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, a serial sexual harasser, which let him escape jail time and avoid registering as a sex offender.
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.”
The article goes on to state the following:
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.
“Multiple women alleged Filner put them into headlocks,” tweeted Washington Examiner reporter Joe Gabriel Simonson.
Harris’ presidential campaign spokesperson, Ian Sams, gave the Examiner the following statement: “She prosecuted a politician from her own party for sexual harassment, and he pled guilty to a felony. She was broadly praised for taking action, including by the Republican San Diego County district attorney who said it sent ‘a strong message that nobody is above the law, abuse of women won’t be tolerated and victims will be treated with respect.'”
NEW: As Attorney General, Kamala Harris gave a sweet deal to serial harasser/assaulter Democrat Bob Filner that let him escape jail time and the sex offender registry list. Multiple women alleged Filner put them into headlocks.
