SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego's beleaguered mayor is facing a deadline to respond to organizers of a recall effort who say he needs to leave office after more than a dozen women alleged he made unwanted advances or inappropriate statements to them.

Under the city's municipal code, Mayor Bob Filner must submit a written response of 300 words or less to the clerk's office by Monday.

The petition can begin circulating whether he responds or not.

But if he does, his written response must be included on the petition. Otherwise the petition must state that he did not respond.

Filner has not been seen since entering an intensive therapy session.

His lawyers say Filner completed the two-week program and is not available for comment this week.
