SAN DIEGO - The city attorney's office may seek a restraining order to bar Mayor Bob Filner from City Hall because his presence allegedly creates a hostile working environment for women. "It is a possibility as a last resort," Michael Giorgino, interim communications director for City Atty. Jan Goldsmith, said Friday. Goldsmith, in several media interviews, has predicted that Filner's ouster as mayor will occur, with the only question being when and by what method. A recall drive is set to begin Sunday.  Goldsmith has found a section of the City Charter that he believes could lead to Filner's removal from office.

Re "Slain woman spoke of threats," June 18 The tragic death of Michelle Kane is a graphic example of what happens when an innocent person brings a piece of paper to a knife fight. Although she was armed with a restraining order, it was apparently no match for the knife allegedly wielded by her husband, who is accused of killing her even though she pleaded for protection from police shortly before her death. This is what can happen to unarmed citizens. Perhaps if Kane had been armed with a gun, her children would have a mother today.
