San Diego Mayor Bob Filner could resign today

Bob Filner, the embattled mayor of San Diego, is expected to step down Friday, after weeks of growing calls for his resignation and a torrent of sexual harassment claims.

His resignation is dependent on the San Diego City Council accepting a proposed mediation agreement - a matter they'll take up during a closed session on Friday, an official familiar with the negotiations told CNN's Lindy Hall.

"It is still our understanding that his resignation is part of the deal that the San Diego City Council needs to sign off on during (the) closed session," the official said.

    He absolutely should retire. The people of San Diego deserve better than a misogynist old creep who cannot keep his hands to himself.

      The prez promised action if chem weapons were used on Syria. Ok they have been used. I would have never said sheot on the matter because I also believe animals need help in other ways than us blowing them up. They'll take of it themselves as so evident on A daily basis.

      O'Reilly is an entertainer. Surely you know this? He isn't paid to report news. He is paid to distort it. I will agree there is a small faction of society that digs this kind of "entertainment." So be it.
