9th woman accuses San Diego mayor of sexual harassment

Yet another woman is coming forward to accuse Democratic San Diego Mayor Bob Filner of sexual harassment.

Emily Gilbert is a Marilyn Monroe impersonator, who said she was singing at a fundraiser when she met Filner.

He "hugged me a little too closely. And then put his arm around me like this, and then he proceeded to slide his arm down, and then give a little grab to my derriere," Gilbert told San Diego's Fox5 news station.

Starting Monday, Filner will enter a behavior counseling clinic for two weeks. Filner's lawyer said the city should pay the mayor's legal fees because it never gave him sexual harassment training.

The city council voted on that Tuesday, and essentially told him to go harass himself.
