Too handsy

SAN DIEGO—Mayor Bob Filner was restricted from meeting with women alone at city facilities Tuesday, a day after his former communications director said he made her feel "ashamed, frightened and violated" and is unfit for his job.

Irene McCormack Jackson, 57, is the first alleged victim to step forward since a sexual harassment scandal surrounding Filner broke out two weeks ago.

Jackson, a longtime San Diego Union-Tribune reporter who left to work for the Port of San Diego before accepting a job with Filner's office in January, announced on Monday that she has filed a lawsuit in San Diego Superior Court against Filner and the city.
