Should Aguirre resign now too?

When San Diego's pension board voted not to waive its attorney-client privilege recently City Attorney Mike Aguirre called on Mayor Dick Murphy to resign. As we all know Murphy subsequently did resign, although not in response to Aguirre's demand.

Given Aguirre's disdain for the attorney-client privilege it's interesting that this story (click here) in the San Diego Union-Tribune ends with the following paragraph about a legal memo leaked to the press about the city's bankruptcy option:

"Aguirre was in Yuma, Ariz., on a working vacation yesterday and said he was disappointed that a document protected by attorney-client privilege was distributed ..."

The irony is almost unbearable.
