A campaign to oust embattled San Diego Mayor Bob Filner began, as volunteers armed with clipboards and petitions fanned out to collect thousands of signatures needed to authorize a recall election. More than a dozen women have publicly accused Filner, a Democrat, of making inappropriate statements or sexual advances. The 70-year-old former congressman has resisted numerous calls to resign.
