Recall protests continue as San Diego Mayor Bob Filner heads to closed door mediation with city officials

In the wake of the sex scandal San Diego Mayor Bob Filner and his representatives were in a closed door mediation with representatives from the city on Monday, while volunteers hoping to oust the mayor continued to collect signatures for a possible recall.

CNN details how a source with direct knowledge of the meeting declined to say what exactly was under discussion. However, CNN affiliate KGTV, citing anonymous sources, reported that the mediation was “designed to include a review of a potential resignation” by the mayor.

Protesters are calling for the Mayor to step down as 16 women have come forward to say that Filner acted inappropriately, with accusations ranging from one woman’s claim that the mayor gave her “tush a pat,” to another’s assertion that he “put in me what I guess now is the famous headlock.”

Filner has stated that he “failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me” and that he was “embarrassed” by his actions. But he also said he will be vindicated by “a full presentation of the facts” and that he would not step down.

Filner is expected to return to work this week.
