SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego Mayor Bob Filner says he will undergo therapy after less than a year in office amid allegations that he sexually harassed women.

Filner announced his plans ion Friday after a series of women claimed he kissed, groped and placed them in headlocks.

The allegations resulted in widespread calls for him to resign, plunging the nation's eighth-largest city into political turmoil.

When the allegations surfaced, Filner apologized for disrespecting women and said he needed help. But soon after, he said he was innocent of sexual harassment and resisted calls to leave office.

The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee called on Filner to resign as did leaders of the San Diego Democratic party.

The former congressman was San Diego's first Democratic mayor in 20 years.
