Filner agrees to resign

After only eight months as mayor, Bob Filner has agreed to resign in the wake of multiple sexual harassment accusations.

So far, 18 women have come forward to publicly accuse Filner of sexual harassment, and a former aide filed a lawsuit against him and the city, seeking damages. The city has agreed to pay for some of Filner’s legal fees in exchange for his resignation. They will also cover any damages awarded in the lawsuit brought against him.

It is fortunate that Filner has finally agreed to resign. A person who cannot control or manage their own personal life should not be allowed to control and manage a city.
