AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for August 23, 2013

Today at 1:00 the deal between San Diego’s Mayor Bob Filner, city officials, and private attorneys will be presented to the City Council for approval in a closed session meeting. San Diego’s now infamous mayor is neck-deep in sexual harassment allegations and his former Communications Director is suing him. The deal is thought to include Filner’s resignation, and an arrangement regarding both the city’s liability and Filner’s. Everyone expects the city council to approve the deal … the details of which will be made public later in the afternoon.

Assuming Filner steps down the city council will pick a day for a special election within the next 90 days. Several candidates are starting to emerge. Check out the special podcast here on BowlersDesk.com for more on who could be San Diego’s next mayor with the President of the political action group Run Woman Run.

There are two sentencings worth noting today … both in San Diego’s downtown courthouse.

First at 9:00 AM Nancy Mendoza Moreno is being sentenced for helping a Mexican kidnapping gang called Los Palillos. She would lure men to various locations around San Diego to be kidnapped and held for ransom.

Then at 1:30 this afternoon Zachary Tenorio is going to be sentenced for killing his naval officer brother during an alcohol fueled fight.

At 8:00 this morning the Boxer Amphibious Ready Group and 2,400 Marines from Camp Pendleton will deploy for the Western Pacific and Middle East.
