Pelosi calls on Filner to quit

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has joined the chorus of calls for Mayor Bob Filner to leave office, issuing her demand via her Twitter account Thursday afternoon.

“Mayor Filner is out of rehab, he should be out of the Mayor’s office – should not subject San Diegans to pain & expense of a recall,” the San Francisco Democrat tweeted.

Pelosi has been criticized for not issuing an explicit call for Filner to resign in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual harassment, the latest coming Thursday afternoon from a great-grandmother who staffs a senior citizens assistance desk at City Hall.
