Tuesday, Filner pleaded guilty to false imprisonment for putting a women in a headlock and two counts of battery for kissing a woman against her will and grabbing another women’s butt. 

 

In a plea deal with the state’s attorney general Filner won’t get any jail time but has agreed to three months of house arrest, three years of probation, he is prohibited from ever holding public office again and Filner has forfeited his pension benefits as Mayor, though he will keep the benefits from his time as a Congressman.

Filner was the first Democratic Mayor in San Diego in more than two decades, and according to a writer for CNN this scandal could keep his party out of the mayoral office for quite a while longer. 

 

“… the loudest voices clamoring for Filner to leave have belonged to his fellow Democrats. … They know what's at stake. Filner could drag his party down with him, and send the county back into the Republican column for another generation.” (Via CNN)

 

The city will hold a special election on November 19th to elect the a new mayor of San Diego.
