A psychologist in the San Diego Unified School District on Wednesday became the third woman to publicly pose allegations of sexual harassment against San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, KPBS reported.
In January 2009, Morgan Rose and her team from the American's Angel Campaign met with then Congressman Bob Filner to pitch a national initiative to help children. Filner later called Rose to schedule another private meeting.
According to Rose, they arranged to meet at a restaurant and talked about the initiative until Filner said “your eyes have bewitched me” and walked over to her side of the booth, sat down, and tried to kiss her.
“He tried to move my face towards his to kiss me on the mouth,” Rose told KPBS.
When Rose denied his advances and attempted to get them talking about the initiative again, Filner said he would not move until she kissed him, and allegedly tried to kiss her four times.
Filner eventually received a phone call and said he had to return to the office.
