AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for August 14, 2013

The Filner_Recall_Reply to the recall effort from San Diego’s Mayor Bob Filner was released to yesterday by recall organizers. Organizers say the response was not complete because the Mayor didn’t sign it.

Now even San Diego’s Hooters restaurants are jumping on the anti-Filner bandwagon. Yesterday three San Diego area Hooters put up signs saying they wouldn’t serve Bob Filner because “we believe women should be treated with respect.”

Brent who describes herself as a housewife says and Michael Pallamary … the leader of the recall effort … have suffered a “complete breakdown in communication”
