Our voices have been heard! Tara Jones, the President of the National Women Veterans Association of America, announced on Wednesday that they have removed Mayor “Filthy Filner” as the keynote speaker at their upcoming August benefit for sexual assault victims!
Jones - who had originally defended keeping Filner as the keynote - announced during a press conference that “the mayor speaking at our event interferes with the moral compass of my organization”.
Had Jones not made this decision, it would have been a horrible slap in the face for not only those harassed by Filner, but for all victims of sexual assault. Sadly, just this week, four more accusers came forward with disturbing allegations of sexual harassment against Filner. And today, the national chairwoman of the Democratic Party called on Filner to resign “for the good of the city.”
Thank you for your involvement in this campaign. Because of your voices, Filner’s filthy behavior will not be tolerated!
