San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is a victim, just like his alleged, uh, victims. According to Filner’s lawyer, the accusations against his client are nothing more than a “group hug” involving the entire city, and the mayor was as much a victim of his unwanted advances as anybody:

A lawyer for San Diego Mayor Bob Filner criticized the city for not providing sexual harassment training to the mayor, saying its failure to do so violated the law.

In a letter to the city attorney, Harvey Berger wrote that Filner might never have been sued for sexual harassment had he been properly trained.

“If there is any liability at all, the city will almost certainly be liable for ‘failing to prevent harassment,’ ” Berger wrote in a letter dated Monday and obtained Wednesday by CNN from City Attorney Jan Goldsmith.

Because if we elect public officials under the assumption that they automatically know they shouldn’t **plunge their faces into the chests of women and make motorboat noises, we get the government what we deserve.

**Note: Not an actual accusation against Filner, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was before too long

Just to prove his attorney’s point, look for Filner to accuse himself of sexually harassing himself at the office later this week.

Video below from CNN. When a sex therapist named “Dr. Judy” is involved in a politician’s intervention, the chances of a successful political rehab are slim:
