After three days of negotiation and mediation, city officials announced that a proposed agreement was reached about Mayor Filner. On the table is Filner’s resignation in exchange for some kind of financial assistance from the city for his legal bills and possible judgements from at least one sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him.
The City Council will have to sign off on the deal since it involves city funds. That meeting is scheduled for Friday at 1pm in a closed door session. City Attorney Jan Goldsmith stated that no details of the proposal would be revealed until the Council voted. A staffer at City Hall took a video of Filner loading boxes into an SUV yesterday.
