A ninth woman has accused San Diego Mayor Bob Filner of sexual harassment, Fox 5 San Diego reports:
Emily Gilbert told Fox5 that she met the mayor at a fundraiser just days after Filner took office in December. Gilbert, who is a dead ring for Marilyn Monroe, was hired to sing at a fundraising event.

"He grabbed me a little too tight, then proceeded to slide his hand down my arm and then did a little grab on my derriere," Gilbert said. "I didn’t want to make a scene there were kids around."
She tried to laugh it off, but was embarrassed by the crude behavior.
Filner said last week he would undergo two weeks of therapy and would not resign his position as mayor, despite the allegations against him. Filner's inappropriate conduct toward women reportedly traces back to his days in the U.S. House of Representatives.
