A women’s veterans group claimed San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has sexually harassed victims of rape and the group is launching a “Please Resign” campaign.

National Women Veteran’s Association of America President Tara Jones, whose organization reaches out to veteran women who have been sexually assaulted, said in a press conference Wednesday that members of her group have experienced inappropriate behavior from Filner at one of their own events.

Shortly after multiple accusations surfaced claiming Filner had sexually harassed women, the group rescinded an offer for the mayor to speak at a benefit for sexual assault victims.

The mayor is currently participating in two-week intensive behavioral treatment at an undisclosed location.
