Jane Filner's only client is her husband, and for the past 11 years she has drawn what is essentially an annual salary from his campaign, though the amount varies from year to year.

Filner said he solicited bids to make sure her fee was at market rate before putting her under contract, and he re-checks that fee periodically.

 Vote Record and Cosponsorship Rating for Representative Bob Filner of CA in the 109th Congress
Filner has taken the principled step of formally lending support to H.R., which would put an end to the practice of "extraordinary rendition."

Filner has taken the affirmative step of cosponsoring H.R., which would provide more information to the public about contacts between lobbyists and politicians, and which would slow down the revolving door of politics in which politicians move into cushy corporate jobs after they retire in exchange for favors.
Bob Filner has cosponsored H.R., which would keep members of the Federal Communication Commission from using their appointed positions to censor cable, satellite or internet programs they consider to be indecent.

 CQPolitics.com - CA 51: Slim Margin Gives Way to Safety for Filner This Fall
Seven-term California Democratic Rep.
