San Diego Democrats Urge Mayor To Resign Amid Sexual Harassment Scandal

(CNN) -- Local Democratic leaders called on their fellow party member, San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, to resign over increasing sexual harassment allegations from multiple women.

The San Diego County Democratic Party voted 34-6 Thursday in its second meeting in a week to discuss the claims.

Seven women have said they were targets of the mayor's advances, including four who came forward Thursday in an interview with KPBS-TV News.

"We respect the legal process that is now unfolding and believe that the mayor and his accusers will have their fair hearing," the San Diego County Democratic Party said in a statement.
