San Diego mayor to start outpatient therapy

Los Angeles (CNN) - San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, facing a growing tide of sexual harassment allegations, has completed two-week intensive behavior therapy and will begin outpatient treatment, according to his lawyer.

In a statement, attorney James Payne said Filner began treatment on July 29, a week earlier than the mayor previously told reporters he would start. Filner was to complete that phase of treatment Saturday, Payne said.

    When people elect (so called) leaders to office, they do so believing that that person won't need a keeper. This time one slipped through the cracks in the system, and it's a good bet he'll be a problem, regardless of the amount of help he gets. Cut your losses now, and look toward the future with someone new.
