Apparently, there's a recall effort underway to oust San Diego's colorful Democrat mayor, and one of the signature-gatherers for the petition has set up a station outside her local Albertson's store, much to the dismay of store management:
“Save the women of S.D. Donate your new and gentley [sic] used sex toys to Filner or sign the recall petition,” the sign reads. Matthews stationed herself, the sign and a bucket for sex toys outside of a local Albertson’s supermarket and has been asking passers-by for signatures and relevant donations.
Store reps claim that this activity is inappropriate for their family-friendly facility, and have asked her to remove her sign. Demonstrating her unfamiliarity with our First Amendment and its relation to private property rights, she's refused, and vows to return.
“This is the United States of America. I can say anything I want, anywhere I want to anyone I want,” she said.
Um, well, no. It doesn't quite work like that, although she'd be on solid ground if she set up on a public sidewalk. Actually, it's likely a moot issue, though, as it looks like Bob's working out a resignation deal of some sort. That was probably inevitable, but it's still unfortunate; it would've been nice to have him still kicking around and making headlines for another year or so.
