Will Clinton Speak Out Against Filner in San Diego?

Today, Hillary Clinton will travel to San Diego to speak at The Global Business Travel Association. When she turns on the news in her hotel room, she’s going to hear all about the 11th and 12th womenwho have come forward just this morning to accuse San Diego Mayor Bob Filner of sexual harassment.

The big question for Hillary: will she use this opportunity to call for Filner’s resignation, or will she join many of her fellow Democratic Party leaders, who have refused to comment on Filner and others, turning a blind eye to sexual misconduct in their own ranks?

It might be hard for her to do the right thing in San Diego given her close ties to Anthony Weiner, having even been briefed on his press conference announcing he was staying in the race after more sexting came to light.
