San Diego Mayor in Therapy After Harassment Allegations
SAN DIEGO (AP) - The mayor of San Diego hasn't won any sympathy by announcing he'll get two weeks of full-time therapy after allegations of sexual harassment.
Mayor Bob Filner's decision defies leaders of his own political party who demand that he resign. And the plan has also failed to appease others who called for San Diego's first Democratic leader in 20 years to step down. Seven women accuse him of making unwanted advances including touching.
Filner announced his plan Friday for a two-week stay in a behavioral clinic after a series of women claimed he kissed, groped and placed them in headlocks.
Filner apologized to voters, his staff and the women he allegedly harassed, and added: "I must take responsibly for my conduct."
