San Diego Mayor Filner Expected to Resign Today

Don't fondle the door on the way out


Mayor Bob Filner is expected to resign Friday amid mounting allegations of sexual harassment just eight months into his first term.

Filner agreed to resign as part of a proposed mediation deal reached with city officials over a sexual-harassment lawsuit, sources familiar with the negotiations said Thursday.

At least 18 women have publicly accused the 70-year-old Democrat of sexual misconduct, including a former aide who filed the lawsuit seeking damages from the city and Filner.
