The L.A. Times has reported that city officials announced yesterday the approval of a $250,000 settlement of sexual harassment claims brought by Irene McCormack Jackson against former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. According to the Times, Jackson alleged in the lawsuit that Filner had made “unwanted physical advances and lewd comments and once told her that she would do better if she came to work not wearing panties.” The Times reports that Filner resigned after more than 20 women accused him of sexual harassment in the workplace.
