San Diego Mayor Leaves Therapy Earlier than Announced

That doesn't bode well

|

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner—facing growing pressure to resign amid sexual-harassment allegations –– has left intensive therapy earlier than announced, his attorneys said Friday.

The most recent pressure comes from California Sen. Barbara Boxer, who is again asking Filner to resign, following new allegations about him harassing women in the military that Boxer said have "shaken her to the core."

"As we fight in the Senate to stand up for the men and women in our military who are survivors of sexual assault, I have … listened to them talk about the pain that will always be with them," Boxer wrote in an open letter to Filner, a fellow Democrat. "The latest revelations regarding your behavior toward women recovering from sexual assault … have shaken me to my core. … You should step down immediately."
