If the common thought in the vapor is that “no woman is safe alone around Mayor Filner” wouldn’t it be prudent for the City Council to adopt a rule / law / policy that forbids the Mayor from meeting alone with any woman on city property or in his official capacity as mayor when off site? It may save millions in claims against the city and therefore has a nexus.
An urgency ordinance could take effect quickly.
But is something like that legally possible?
If it is and Filner vetoes it, an override should be easy.
If it is and the city council takes no action, do they become culpable?
