Two more women—both military veterans—say they were the targets of unwanted and unpleasant sexual advances by San Diego Mayor Bob Filner.

Eldonna Fernandez and Gerri Tindley told CNN their encounters with Filner came at a meeting of female military veterans while he was a member of Congress.

Fernandez, a retired Air Force master sergeant, said she met Filner at a "Healing and Hiring Fair" sponsored by the San Diego-based National Women's Veterans Assn. of America.

Tindley, an Army veteran, said she met Filner at the same event, where she gave a speech about sexual assault in the military. The group was organized to provide support for women who have been sexually abused.
