A ninth woman has come forward to accuse San Diego Mayor Bob Filner of sexual harassment.
Emily Gilbert, who performs as a Marilyn Monroe impersonator, told Fox5 that Filner groped her at a fundraiser where she was hired to sing.
“He grabbed me a little too tight, then proceeded to slide his hand down my arm and then did a little grab on my derriere,” Gilbert said. “I didn’t want to make a scene; there were kids around.”
Jason Gilbert, who is Emily's husband, said he was livid when he heard what had happened but felt powerless to do anything about it.
Now that the mayor has confessed to inappropriate behavior, the couple wants him to resign and donate money to a women's charity.
Filner has admitted that he "failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me." He is going into therapy for behavioral issues. But he is fighting the sexual harassment charges against him and has refused to resign.
