CNN) — San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, publicly accused of sexual harassment by seven women, says he will enter “a behavior counseling clinic for two weeks of intensive therapy” starting August 5.
Seven women have publicly accused Filner of unwanted groping, kissing and other inappropriate contact. Many of the accusations allegedly took place during his five terms in Congress, before he was elected mayor last year.
Filner, 70, admitted to “inappropriate” behavior this month, saying he has “failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me, and that at times I have intimidated them.”
Yet, he has said he will not step down from an office he was elected to barely eight months ago.
“It’s very important that I think we continue with my priorities, that’s what I was elected to do,” Filner said last week. “That’s why I’m not resigning.”
Gee…2 whole weeks huh. Maybe he should give Carlos Danger his therapist’s card. Sounds like he/she is a therapist miracle worker!! Maybe the therapist would give them a 2 fer discount!!
