Sources: Filner to Take Time Off for Therapy

by Andrew Johnson

As calls for him to resign increase, including from local and national Democratic leaders, San Diego mayor Bob Filner may instead seek to take time off for therapy, according to sources in city hall. KGTV 10 reports that a press conference today is possible.

Seven woman have come forward in the two weeks since he issued an apology video for having “failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me.” Earlier today, Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz called on Filner to step down after the San Diego Democratic party did so as well.
