San Diego Mayor Bob Filner officially resigns; Gloria Allred has party

SAN DIEGO

Attorney Gloria Allred held a mock going away party for Filner with some of the women who say they were victims of Filner.

"Because they were willing to speak out, San Diego learned that women were being harassed in City Hall while Bob Filner was mayor, and that a woman seeking help for a constituent from Mayor Filner was at risk and that even a great-grandmother could be a target of Mayor Filner's advances," said Allred.

Appearing with Allred were three of his accusers who came forward, one of them a great-grandmother.

City Council President Todd Gloria will succeed Filner until a special election is held.
