We're going to start here with the allegedly handsy mayor of san diego, who is in a profound political mess. 70% of his constituents want him to go. The cops have set up a hot line for alleged new victims of his sexual harassment. And yet, the mayor is holding fast. You see video, he did hold a news conference yesterday, saying he's going into, quote, intensive therapy. The question this morning, is that enough? Abc's linzie janis is on the story. Reporter: Guys, another bizarre twist in this scandal. The city attorney said it took several days to find the mayor to serve him a subpoena, in a case filed by one of his victims. San diego mayor bob filner is giving himself a second chance, whether people like it or not. I will be entering a behavior counseling clinic, to undergo two weeks of intensive therapy.

At the table made a joke and said worked her behind off for you. He told me to turn around. He patted me on the behind and proceeded to laugh. Reporter: When the scandal erupted two weeks ago, the mayor reacted immediately byishying an apology on youtube. Then, a day later, said he was innocent of sexual harassment. Since then, husbais alleged victims have come forward. He would try to kiss me on the lips. Ve to squirm to get away. To work without my underwear on. Reporter: Police have set up a hotline for other victims of the 70-year-old mayor. It's not acceptable for me to try to explain away my conduct, as the product of the standards of a different generation. I think therapy is what you do when you have a personal problem. When you're the mayor of san diego, and you have a problem of that degree, you resign. Reporter: As for running the city of san diego while all this is going on, the mayor has appointed an interim chief operating officer to help with his duties.
