Nurse: Filner offered to help brain-damaged Marine — if I promised to have dinner with him « Hot Air: "Said Raggazino, the Marine, “I don’t appreciate being used as a bargaining chip to fulfill his sexual desires.” When was the last time America saw a sex-related political scandal quite this noxious? I say “sex-related” because it’s not a “sex scandal”; there’s nothing consensual about any of it. It’s a harassment scandal that’s related to sex. But maybe that’s a misnomer too. Note that Tyler doesn’t say that Filner demanded sex outright; he wanted her to “spend personal time” with him but also to “be seen in public with him.” Seems like he was getting off on the ego stroke in wielding his power as mayor as much as, if not more than, the sexual thrill.
