He once defended himself by saying he's a -- of men and women.
Now he calls his behavior inexcusable.
Still he is not resigning even with the leaders of his own political party calling for him to step down.
But he had some technical difficulties today as he was telling us what he does plan to do it happened live on studio -- here look.
Beginning on August 5.
They'll be entering a behavior consultant counseling clinic.

Because all the local stations were using the same sound system -- fiddle around with it for awhile replaced it brought in -- new podium.

So I'm beginning on on August 5.

To undergo two weeks of intensive therapy to begin the process of addressing my behavior.
During this time period LB at the clinic full time.
Though every morning and evening I will be briefed on city activities.
So the mayor will be running the city from his 24 hour a day clinic.
As a reminder here's just some of what seven women accused mayor -- of doing -- -- going back to his days as a democratic congressman.
He tried to get my face into his face so he could kiss me I was placed in this film -- headlock.
And moved around as a rag doll I pointed out.

We'll -- -- to say we haven't heard from anybody who was happy with exactly what went down today now for the people that want film are gone and gone now.
One of two things has to happen he has to resign or there has to be a recall on the recall process is pretty complicated first of all all the people who want -- gone would have to get just over a 100000.
Valid signatures that -- still hold an election it would actually take a couple months for that election to happen -- since builder was just elected this past November.
The recall may be the best option since it doesn't sound like he plans to resign anytime soon.

That I am doing right by this city.
In terms of being the best -- I can be.
But some local politicians tell us they're just not buying -- we have -- actually have a quote from councilman Kevin falcon -- he says two weeks of therapy.
Well not ended decades of bad behavior Bob -- should lead to receive the help he obviously needs.
But he shouldn't take the office of the mayor and San Diego city government with them.
He needs to resign and seek long term treatment as a private citizen and we for that echoed by thousands of citizens in San Diego in -- there's a recall.
Film or FaceBook page at this point many people writing that he's arrogant he's a bomb and that he simply is not the best person.
