10th woman alleges unwanted advance by Mayor Filner

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A tenth woman has stepped forward to accuse Mayor Bob Filner of sexual misconduct, with claims Filner made repeat, unwelcome romantic advances at a church, it was reported Sunday.

UT San Diego identified the latest accuser as Renee Estill-Sombright, 46, a bank employee and part-time professional singer.

Estill-Sombright claims Filner made uninvited sexual advances toward her in June when they met at La Jolla Presbyterian Church where she sang the national anthem during Sunday services.

Estill-Sombright, who is married, claimed the mayor complimented her and asked her out repeatedly, saying "This is a private invite, not a social invite."

According to the U-T, the gospel and R&B singer said Filner, who'd missed her singing the national anthem, suggested she "could give him a private song."

So far, a total of 10 women, including Filner's former chief spokeswoman, Irene McCormack Jackson, have accused him of inappropriate sexual behavior.
