Filner's ex- fiancee releases statement about split

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Mayor Filner and his fiancée - Bronwyn Ingram - stood side by side just a few months ago at his inauguration, but last week the first couple suddenly split, and now, according to a KPBS article we know why.

According to a statement Ingram sent KPBS: "Bob's behavior continued to become more aggressive, standard decorum seemed to disappear. Bob recently began texting other women sexually explicit messages and setting up dates while in my presence and within my line of vision."

"I have witnessed a severe deterioration in Bob's ability to engage with anyone in a civil manner, myself included. During our trip to Paris, he screamed at me in public without provocation, among other inappropriate and disrespectful acts."

Ingram then joined the growing list of those publicly saying it's time for the Mayor to resign, continuing to say:

"Anyone embroiled in so many serious controversies is impaired in ability to run a city. The mayor's office is now paralyzed, engaging only in defensive posturing and struggling to survive. The work of the people and for the people has ceased. I therefore urge Bob to put the best interest of the people of San Diego first and submit his resignation."

The KPBS article comes on the heels of this from the San Diego Reader:

A report from anonymous constituent, who says she went to visit the Mayor at a monthly meet and greet. He told me I was a very attractive woman and asked if I would go out with him. I thought he was making a joke and told him that I knew he had a very attractive fiancée. He then repeated that he would like to go out with me. He never acknowledged my comment about his fiancée. He then said he would like to kiss me. I did not acknowledge him. He leaned over and kissed me anyway. I got up and left.
