This Nov. 7, 2012 file photo shows San Diego Mayor Bob Filner smiling during a news conference at a park in San Diego. A prominent onetime supporter of Mayor Filner is calling for him to resign after less than a year in office amid allegations that he sexually harassed women.

It's been an interesting week in San Diego. As you may recall, last week, the city's mayor Bob Filner was accused of sexual harassment.

A prominent former supporter urged the 70-year-old Democrat to step down after several woman made accusations that Filner harassed them. Filner has issued an apology, but he's refused to resign. 

Now, both supporters and opponents of the mayor are staging rallies outside City Hall. For more on this we're joined by KPBS senior editor Mark Sauer.
