Nancy Pelosi has been quiet about accusations against former House member and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. But at least the House Minority Leader is being helpful enough to give reporters instructions about how to explain her past working relationship with Filner: Don’t:

Democrats who accused Republicans of being anti-women during last year’s campaign are strangely silent now that one of their own — San Diego Mayor Bob Filner — is accused of groping and sexually assaulting women.

“Don’t identify him as my former colleague,” an agitated House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi reportedly said Thursday night when asked about the claims against Filner.

Why in the world would anybody think to refer to Filner as Pelosi’s “former colleage”?

Pelosi worked alongside Filner for 10 years in Congress. The two were founding members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, and Filner was a loyal foot soldier for the House leader, having spent 20 years in Congress. On Friday, however, Pelosi said, “What goes on in San Diego is up to the people of San Diego. I’m not here to make any judgments.”

Pelosi was of course referring to the world famous saying, “What happens in San Diego stays in San Diego.”

Related story: Man who is definitely not Nancy Pelosi’s former colleague will deliver the keynote address at a benefit for sexual assault victims. You can’t make this stuff up.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled Republican “War on Women™.”
