After 15th Sexual Harassment Allegation, Pelosi Demands Filner's Resignation

Earlier today, a 15th woman came forward to accuse San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D) of sexual harassment. Now, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is urging him to resign.

Before being elected mayor, Filner spent two decades in Congress as a member of Pelosi’s Democartic caucus.

So far, Filner has held on as mayor in spite a growing bipartisan chorus (including the San Diego Democratic Party) calling for his resignation. Filner may be removed by recall, but efforts to collect signatures to force a recall election have been plagued by infighting.
