How Long Will a Filner Comeback Take? Governor Filner?


Bob Filner is finally resigning in disgrace. Not that disgrace means much. Bill Clinton left office with a cloud over his head and now his wife is a sure thing in 2016. Anthony Weiner is running for Mayor of New York City. Elliot Spitzer resigned in disgrace and is in the lead to terrorize the city as Comptroller. Jim McGreevey resigned as Governor of New Jersey and is heading up Jersey City’s Employment & Training Commission.

So the only question is how long will a Filner comeback take?

Like Weiner and Spitzer, Filner would be smart not to go the direct route. It’s easier to either go for a bigger job or a smaller job, than the job you had to quit.

The obvious way for Filner to go is to run for Governor of California.

Sure it sounds crazy, but the current governor was complicit in the abuse of children by the Jim Jones cult and he made multiple comebacks despite the whole Governor Moonbeam title.

If the voters will forgive the abuse and murder of children, Bob Filner molesting 18 women should get a pass from the voters of California who would, in their current state, vote for the resurrected shambling corpse of Adolf Hitler as long as he had a D after his name and appeared at the requisite Chicano power luncheons and Planned Parenthood rallies.

It’s only a matter of time.

Elliot Spitzer tried the CNN route. It didn’t really work out, but Filner could still give it a shot. If CNN won’t give him a gig, what about MSNBC or Al Jazeera?

Anthony Weiner just hold up in his apartment with lucrative Clinton consulting contracts that were part of his unofficial severance package. That’s probably a good look for Bob Filner since it keeps him away from people.

Jim McGreevey went on a prison ministry to inmates and made a movie with Pelosi’s daughter. That could be a good move for Filner.

But what’s important is remembering that the Filner saga isn’t over. Shame is dead, decency was run over by a truck and the idea that there are any moral standards involving Democrats went out with landlines. It’s a bold new time. The Filner comeback is happening.

It’s only a question of when.

    Sorry, but Filner is done. Stick the fork in him. He will never be governor. He might appear on Maury Povich tho.

    Live here in San Diego and was active in the Re Call obtaining signatures
    on the petitions to get Filner out.
    Filner is totally finished. San Diego is the second largest city in California
    and most Democrats here will not be voting for him again for anything.
    They, including the most liberal helped take out one of their own, not only
    the issue with women but a $100,000 kickback, trip to Paris costing tax payers
    and major anger management issues.
    This is why he lasted less than a year in office.
    I had many democrats sign the recall petition saying, they did not know
    his background and had enough.
    Filner was one of our 5 Congressmen in San Diego for 20 years and had a safe Dist. in the South Bay area and along the border.
    The only people who still backed Filner were the Unions, especially SEIU.
