City Council now in closed session, considering Filner deal
Last Updated: 109 days ago
SAN DIEGO - The San Diego City Council is now in closed session and considering an agreement that would end a political stalemate over calls for Mayor Bob Filner to resign amid allegations of sexual harassment.
The City Council met Friday to consider a pact that Filner struck with the city attorney.
About 40 people spoke to the council before they adjourned behind closed doors. They were divided on whether the mayor should resign.
Media were packed inside and outside city hall as the wait continued for more than an hour. By mid-afternoon Friday, cell phone use became spotty with so many reporters on phones.
The tentative agreement comes less than nine months after Filner became the city's first Democratic leader in 20 years.
