San Diego Mayor Begins Two Week Absence for Therapy

Sunday, 04 August 2013 09:26 AM EDT

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is beginning two weeks of full-time therapy while facing a sexual harassment lawsuit and calls for his resignation amid a flurry of allegations that he groped and forcibly kissed women for years.

Bob Filner's accusers, his one-time supporters and voters express skepticism that his therapy starting Monday is an appropriate remedy for what the mayor himself has described as years of inappropriate behavior toward women. Longtime therapists question how much progress can be made.

Neither Filner nor his office has released details about his therapy or its location. Filner is picking up the tab for the treatment.

He is set to be grilled by lawyers under oath Friday in the harassment lawsuit brought by his former communications director.
