San Diego Mayor Bob Filner resigns over sexual harassment

We’re so used to politicians and bigwigs who refuse to take accountability for their behavior that when somebody does admit they did something wrong, it is kind of … weird.

Amidst allegations that he had groped numerous woman, San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, a Democrat, released a public apology on Thursday admitting there was some truth to sexual harassment allegations against him. Admitting “I need help,” the 70-year-old confessed in a DVD provided to the media that “I have reached into my heart and soul and realize I must and will change my behavior.” However, the mayor vehemently maintains he is not guilty of sexual harassment.

Numerous women he has allegedly sexually harassed, including constituents and a former employee, tell a different story. Keep reading »

More good news on the marriage equality front! Today, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found Proposition 8 to be unconstitutional. California voters passed the measure in 2008, explicitly defining marriage to be between one man and one woman. In the four-month period before the law took effect, an estimated 18,000 same-sex couples wed in California. Today the court ruled that “Proposition 8 served no purpose, and had no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California.” This is an important victory, and experts think the case will make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court within the next year. Between Washington state’s recent marriage equality bill and 116 U.S. mayors signing a Freedom To Marry pledge, it feels like the tide is finally turning in the fight for equal rights. It’s about time. Read the full text of the court’s decision here. [Los Angeles Times]

Spending last week in Los Angeles gave me a major case of real estate envy. Imagine having more than 400 square feet to decorate! Speaking of decorating, I was also super inspired by the laid back look of the shops in Silverlake, with their vaguely ’70s beach-meets-desert vibe. I can’t wait to buy some succulents at the farmer’s market this weekend and, once I have some extra cash, add some more SoCal cool to my East Coast digs. Above are some pieces that would do the trick — find out where to get them after the jump!
