Mayor Admits He Sexually Harassed Women

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D) admitted to allegations from political allies that he has sexually harassed numerous women, the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

Said Filner: "I begin today by apologizing to you. I have diminished the office to which you elected me. The charges made at today's news conference are serious. When a friend like Donna Frye is compelled to call for my resignation, I'm clearly doing something wrong. I have reached into my heart and soul and realized I must and will change my behavior."

"As someone who has spent a lifetime fighting for equality for all people, I am embarrassed to admit that I have failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me, and that at times I have intimidated them."
