Petition to oust San Diego mayor Filner
SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- A petition has now been started to boot San Diego's mayor from office. It began officially at midnight. This comes after several sexual harassment allegations against mayor Bob Filner. Volunteers will be waiting at the finish line of a half marathon and at a Freedom from Filner" march downtown. Filner has resisted numerous calls to resign from the nine-member city council, and state and federal elected officials, including house minority leader Nancy Pelosi. She says her fellow democrat should step down and spare San Diego the pain and expense of a recall election. More than a dozen women have publicly accused the 70-year-old former congressman of making inappropriate statements or advances.
