67-year-old great-grandmother on San Diego mayor Bob Filner: "He hugged me and kissed me...I was appalled, I was shocked"

As new accusations of inappropriate conduct are levied at Bob Filner, on Thursday evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed the latest person to come forward, 67-year-old great-grandmother Peggy Shannon.

Joining the program via satellite, the woman who works at the Senior Citizens' Service Desk in San Diego City Hall explained her uncomfortable interactions with the mayor:

"He started coming by the desk," she began, "talking to me about wanting to do a date on the weekend, and I knew he was engaged."

Joined by her lawyer Gloria Allred, Shannon then went on to reveal arguably the most-surprising details of all:

"Another day he came up to me without any warning when I was outside going home, and he hugged me and kissed me," she told Morgan. "I was appalled. I was shocked."

A well-known women's rights attorney, Allred supplied additional context to the disturbing behavior Filner is said to have engaged in:

"She also alleges that he came up to her and made a comment such as 'do you think I can go eight hours straight?' That, of course, was taken to mean possibly a sexual comment," Allred clarified. "The mayor says that he can go eight hours straight. We just want him to go. We want him to leave the office of mayor and resign once and for all."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Shannon and Allred, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    With that mug, you think she'd be grateful. And you know Allred has some sort of freakish fascination w/this type of nonsense.

    OMG!! I spewed coffee all over my desk twice – once when I saw the image and then when I read Elliott's response. I guess Filner could have some type of fetish, because quite a few of those that are accusing him of inappropriate behavious fall into the lower tier of the "10" score.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

    Imagine getting hundreds of people flooding your inbox on autopilot, 24/7 with 100 percent commissions of $500 a day. This is made thanks to traffic conveyed on autopilot over various “viral tiers”. More details:

    The very crux of your writing while sounding reasonable initially, did not work very well with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you were able to make me a believer but only for a short while. I still have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do nicely to fill in all those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I would surely be amazed.
