DNC to vote on resolution urging Filner to resign

Tuesday - 8/20/2013, 7:00pm  ET

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Democratic National Committee plans to vote on a resolution this week urging San Diego Mayor Bob Filner to resign. The embattled mayor has been accused of sexually harassing more than a dozen women.

The resolution will urge Filner to resign immediately and say that the Democratic Party condemns anyone who creates a hostile work place or sexually harasses women or men. It's expected to be voted on Friday at the DNC's summer meeting in Phoenix.

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz urged Filner to resign in a statement in July. Filner is a former Democratic congressman.

The mayor has undergone therapy after acknowledging he disrespected and intimidated women. He has denied committing sexual harassment.

The resolution was first reported by CNN.
