SAN DIEGO — San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, under growing pressure to resign over allegations of making lewd comments and unwanted advances toward women, was accused of sexual harassment on Monday in a lawsuit filed against him and the city by a former aide.

The suit was brought by the mayor's former director of communications, Irene McCormack Jackson, whose complaint quotes Filner as telling her last month in her office, "When are you going to get naked? Come on and give me a kiss."

The 11-page suit, seeking unspecified damages, was filed in San Diego County Superior Court.

Filner's representatives could not be immediately reached for comment on the lawsuit.

The mayor, a Democrat and former member of Congress, has recently acknowledged inappropriate behavior toward female staff members but has indicated he would not resign.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
