Kgtv reports the 70-year-old embattled mayor is going to resign today, if the city council approves a settlement agreement, hashed without behind closed doors this week, with attorneys for the city and his many accusers. He asked me to work without my underwear on. He groped me on my backside inappropriately. It was a hand, back to my buttocks. And I was shocked. Reporter: That last woman is the 18th to come forward and accuse filner of sexual harassment in the last month and a half. I diminished the office to which you elected me. Reporter: He tried apologizing. He even went to rehab for a few weeks. But the drumbeat for him to go, just seems to get louder. Voters here have been gathering signatures to throw him out of office, before he can quit. Come to the mic. Reporter: Talk radio is relentless. We've been talking about this nonstop for the last six weeks. And we really just want it to be over with and start moving forward. Reporter: That could happen today. But a lot depends on the terms of that undisclosed agreement. And if the city council can stomach it. There should be no payoff for mayor filner. His parting gift should be, good riddance. Instead of a handout. Reporter: So, behind me is america's eighth-largest city. And without question, one of its most beautiful. The question this morning, will this very ugly scandal finally come to an end? And, josh, we should know the answer to that in just a couple of hours. It's certainly been a long time coming.
