SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- San Diego Bob Filner has agreed to resign amid allegations of sexual harassment and numerous calls for him to step down.

The San Diego City Council voted 7-0 today on an agreement that ends a political stalemate after more than a dozen women claimed that Filner made unwanted advancements on them including touching, kissing and lude comments.

Todd Gloria, the Democratic City Council president, will act as mayor until a special election is held within 90 days of the resignation.
