A 16th woman has come forward alleging that San Diego Mayor Bob Filner sexually harassed her.
Peggy Shannon, 67, who works part-time at the Senior Citizens Service Desk in the lobby of the City Administration Building, said Thursday that Filner repeatedly asked her out during work and that he once grabbed her and kissed her on the lips.
Shannon claims that Filner, 70, also once told her that he could 'go eight hours straight' in an apparent reference to sex.
'On the day that Mayor Filner grabbed me and kissed me, I was so surprised,' Shannon said at a press conference Thursday with celebrity attorney Gloria Allred. 'I went home and cried.'
On July 18, Shannon filed with the EEO office claiming that Mayor Filner had sexually harassed her. She received a response that her allegations would be reviewed.
Explaining why she has decided to come forward with her story, Shannon, a mother and great-grandmother, said, 'I want to do the right thing for San Diego.'
