On Wednesday a mediation deal was reached with San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, meaning that he had to agree to everything it contained. According to yesterday’s resignation speech, it was just like a coup.

From CNN:

“But the hysteria that has been created … is the hysteria of a lynch mob,” Filner said, criticizing an environment in which “rumors become allegations, allegations become facts, facts become evidence of sexual harassment which have led to demands for my resignation and recall.”

Blasting politicians and members of the media who “unleashed a monster,” the mayor said, “The hysteria ended up playing into the hands of those who wanted a political coup — the removal of a democratically elected mayor purely by rumor and innuendo.”

Here’s of the more touching moments from Filner’s resignation speech:

We protected seals and we protected La Jolla from the poop from the seals and others.

That’s better than the line in the original draft, which was “I grabbed a lotta ass here, it’s been great.”

After Filner was deposed, rumor has it he tried to seek exile in Gloria Allred’s booster phone book.

Background: The “Filthy Filner” cover-up.
