San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has been the subject of national news for months in the wake of sexual harassment allegations from several women.
Elected as San Diego’s first Democratic mayor in two decades, Filner is hoping to ride out the storm of criticism related to the sexual misconduct accusations and he has ignored demands by fellow politicians and others for him to resign.
The mayor face a potential recall election and Filner entered in an intensive therapy program in the wake of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a former staff member.
Even Democrats have come around to call on Filner to resign. But, last year, the Planned Parenthood abortion business claimed Filner was a defender of women.
As a political report from Yahoo News reported on Twitter:
Just ran across an old Planned Parenthood Action Fund letter from 2012: “For twenty years, Bob Filner has defended women.”

The conservative web site Twitchy found more information:
The group might want to take a second look at San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, whom Planned Parenthood heartily endorsed in 2012 as a long-time defender of women. It’s almost as if Planned Parenthood will forgive anything as long as abortion is protected.
Women’s right to choose and access to safe birth control are under attack.
For twenty years, Bob Filner has defended women … our right to choice, our right to healthcare, our right to equal pay.
Bob Filner has a 100% voting record on women’s health. He put the Lily Ledbetter Equal Pay for Women Act on President Obama’s desk. Now, it’s the law.
Twitchy also found a video of Planned Parenthood endorsing Filner:
“The war on women can be done at any level,” Filner told a crowd of enthusiastic supporters at a Planned Parenthood rally last October.
