DNC Leader Urges Filner To Resign

The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee is calling on San Diego Mayor Bob Filner to resign after four more women said they were targets of his sexual advances.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee is calling on San Diego Mayor Bob Filner to resign after four more women said they were targets of his sexual advances.

Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz leads the DNC. She says the misconduct Filner has been accused of is, quote, "reprehensible and indefensible."

Wasserman Schultz says there is, quote, "no place for this type of conduct in the workplace and certainly not in our city halls and public offices."

Filner is a former Democratic congressman who's now accused by seven women of making unwanted sexual advances.

Leaders of the San Diego Democratic party are urging the mayor to quit.
