Via NBC San Diego:

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has agreed to resign as part of a deal reached this week with city officials NBC 7 News has learned.

Filner, spotted leaving City Hall with packing boxes Wednesday night, will formally vacate the office following a closed session of City Council Friday according to several sources.

Just before 7 p.m. Wednesday city officials announced a proposed solution in the scandal that has consumed the city of San Diego since it first broke July 10.

In the last six weeks, more than a dozen women have come forward with tales of alleged sexual harassment and unwanted sexual advances.

Filner has admitted to disrespecting and at times intimidating women, state he needed help and announced he would enter a treatment program for an undisclosed disorder or illness.
