NBC News 7 San Diego has learned that Mayor Bob Filner will resign as part of a deal reached with city officials.
The body count of Filner’s victims stands at 18. Negotiations and mediation had been taking place for the last three days and yesterday, City Attorney Jan Goldsmith had announced a proposed agreement had been reached. Filner was most likely using his resignation to extract concessions from the City, like legal fees and settlements, possibly even his pension.
The City Council will have to sign off any deal that involves the City’s money and are going to review the proposal tomorrow during a closed door meeting.
