SAN DIEGO — Four more women are publicly identifying themselves as targets of San Diego Mayor Bob Filner's unwanted sexual advances. The latest accusers spoke Thursday with KPBS about inappropriate touching and comments. They say they believe Filner is unfit for office and should resign immediately. The accusers are a retired Navy rear-admiral, a dean at San Diego State University, the head of the Ports Tenants Association and a businesswoman. Veronica "Ronne" Froman, the retired rear-admiral and former chief operating officer for the city, told KPBS Filner once blocked a doorway, ran his finger up her cheek and asked if she had a man in her life. She says it happened "a couple years ago" when Filner was a congressman. This week, seven women have publicly identified themselves as targets of Filner's advances.
