SAN DIEGO (AP) - Dueling efforts to recall San Diego Mayor Bob Filner are underway as the leader of the nation's eighth-largest city ignores mounting calls that he resign over allegations of sexual harassment.
Land-use surveyor Michael Pallamary on Monday accused the leader of another recall campaign of being a stealth supporter of the mayor and threatened to file a complaint with the San Diego County district attorney's office alleging election law violations.
Pallamary published a newspaper notice Sunday to mark the first step of a recall bid, two days after gay rights activist Stampp Corbin did so. Corbin had been an ardent Filner supporter.
Pallamary says he expects the city attorney's office to rule soon on whether the two recall campaigns can run concurrently.
