Bob Filner is still San Diego’s Mayor despite angry cries for his resignation. Yesterday former San Diego Councilwoman Donna Frye was yelling her sexual harassment allegations from the steps of city hall. Frye says that the Mayor aggressively kissed and groped women.

Filner did respond to the allegation with interviews for a few select stations. No one knows what the criteria were for getting the sit-down with the mayor.

Are they friendlier to the administration?

Did they submit question lists before hand?

Did the Mayor choose the reporter for personal reasons?
