SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Mayor Filner's office announced Wednesday he will pick up the tab for his personal travel expenses for his recent trip to Paris.
His office released the following statement from the mayor:
I have become aware that the Organization of Iranian-American Communities' representations regarding its non-profit status were inaccurate. For this reason, I will reimburse OIAC for all amounts it paid for my travel expenses to participate in its international conference in Paris, France, above the $440 gift limit.
San Diego taxpayers ended up paying more than $20,000 for the mayor's security detail on the trip.
