After Days of Mediation, San Diego Mayor Reaches Agreement


San Diego (CNN) — An agreement has been reached with San Diego Mayor Bob Filner after three days of mediation, the city attorney told reporters Wednesday.

City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said details of the proposed deal would remain confidential until they are presented to the City Council in a private meeting Friday at 1 p.m. (4 p.m. ET).

Immediately after the meeting, a report may be out at a public council meeting, Goldsmith said.

“Any rumors you hear about the proposal you may deem to be untrue because the people standing here are the ones who know of it and we have all committed … that we will maintain the confidentiality of the mediation,” he said while flanked by individuals involved in the effort.
Asked about Filner’s response to the agreement, his attorney declined to comment.

Filner has been in mediation talks on the heels of undergoing intensive two-week behavioral therapy amid multiple allegations that paint him as a serial perpetrator of sexual harassment.

So far, 18 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 woman’s assertion that he “put me in what I guess now is the famous headlock.”

The embattled mayor has steadfastly resisted efforts to force him out of office in recent weeks

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
