[twitter-follow screen_name='politicalticker']

(CNN) - This is the day San Diego Mayor Bob Filner enters a behavior counseling clinic for two weeks of what he describes as intensive therapy.

The 70-year-old is battling a tide of sexual harrassment allegations, and is hoping that voluntarily subjecting himself to the counseling will quell the mounting calls for his resignation.

    He ain't resigning because he wants the City of San Diego to pay his legal bills. Precedent says he can do it.
