A Hooters located in San Diego has banned Mayor Bob Filner from the establishment.
Hooters joined a campaign by a local radio talk-show host to ban Filner from businesses across the city. The San Diego Hooters has a sign that reads “The mayor of San Diego will not be served in this establishment” and that “women should be treated with respect.” Hooters confirmed via Twitter that the San Diego restaurant was acting on its own and that the company supports its girls. The controversy behind Filner comes from allegations made by at least 11 women that the mayor sexually harassed them. It has also been reveled that Filner has racked up $500 in charges on his city credit card for visits to a hotel near his office. Patrons of the hotel’s bar claim that the mayor was often there, each time with a different woman, reports CNN.
Filner has also been banned from Hooters restaurants in the nearby towns of Mission Valley, Oceanside and Rancho Bernardo.
