SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Democrats gathered for their national summer meeting have voted unanimously to demand the resignation of San Diego Mayor Bob Filner because of numerous sexual harassment allegations against him.
Friday's vote during the Democratic National Committee's meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz., came as San Diego's City Council was mulling a deal with the former Democratic congressmen that could include his leaving office.
The DNC's resolution passed on a voice vote of 230 of the committee's members.
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Thursday called Filner's conduct "outrageous" and "unacceptable" and repeated her call for him to resign.
More than a dozen women have accused Filner of sexual harassment. Some of the women contend he cornered, groped and forcibly kissed them.
