San Diego Mayor Bob Filner Not Leaving Anytime Soon

Hosted by

"Bob is stubborn and he likes to fight." That's what one political consultant says about San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. He's been accused by 16 women of unwelcome sexual advances; one has sued him in court. A unanimous City Council has demanded that he resign and a recall campaign is underway. But Filner promised to return to his office today after two weeks of therapy, ready to be "the best mayor I can be." Steven Erie is Professor of Political Science at the University of California at San Diego.
