Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz leads the DNC. She says the misconduct Filner has been accused of is, quote, “reprehensible and indefensible.”
Wasserman Schultz says there is, quote, “no place for this type of conduct in the workplace and certainly not in our city halls and public offices.”
Filner is a former Democratic congressman who’s now accused by seven women of making unwanted sexual advances.
