Democrats in San Diego are preparing for civil war. Former Councilwoman Donna Frye is leading the charge against Mayor Bob Filner … accusing him of sexual misconduct. Don’t expect Filner to just toss up his hands and resign though. That’s not his nature. It’s unclear, actually, whether he even should resign – but we’ll learn more at the Frye press conference tomorrow.
So if he doesn’t resign, then what? Frye doesn’t have the financial means to mount a recall. Bob doesn’t have a ton of Democrat allies – he was the Democrat choice by default. So what does labor do? What does the business community do? Who picks up the tab for a recall? I’ve got to guess that business sits this out. After all, why should they pay to solve what is going to be a bloody internal Democrat fight. Labor?
