Special Feature Read the Backstory

All of the accusations, statements and apologies from the key players in the developing story about allegations of sexual harassment in Mayor Bob Filner's office and calls from former mayoral supporters for his resignation.

In just six weeks San Diego Mayor Bob Filner went from leading America's Finest City with a vision toward the future - to fighting allegations of sexual misconduct.

It started with a lawsuit filed by Filner's former communications director Irene Jackson McCormack. She's being represented by famed attorney Gloria Allred.

In the weeks that followed more women came forward with allegations - to date 19 of them. Many of the allegations took place while Filner was still in Congress.

But now that he's officially stepping down, we take a look at what's next for San Diego.
