Bob Filner’s press secretary Lena Lewis caught behaving badly at bachelorette party

One of Mayor Bob Filner’s staff members now under attack after a source gave Team 10 a photo of Filner’s press secretary, Lena Lewis, sipping on a straw shaped like male genitalia.

Lewis was photographed at her bachelorette party in Vegas. While the behavior is not unusual at bachelorette parties, but not timed well. The Mayor is under attack from protesters calling for him to resign as the sex scandal in San Diego rages on.

Filner and his staff have become reclusive during the new outcries.

Political consultant John Dadian said, “For somebody in the public sector, this just is not good.”

“When the public doesn’t know where the mayor is, when the media doesn’t know where the mayor is, you need somebody,” said Dadian.

Dadian said public figures are held to a higher standard.

“It’s an image,” he said. “If somebody sees an elected official doing something, it reflects bad not only on the staff member but on the entity, in this case, the city of San Diego.”

Then, there is the issue of why Filner is under fire to begin with: alleged sexual harassment of women. Some believe the nature of the straw is in poor taste.

“She is somebody who is the public face for the mayor,” said Dadian. “You quite honestly have to have a higher standard. She should know better.”

Check out the photo, it is certain to go viral on the Internet over the coming days – click here
