SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is leaving office, but the sexual harassment allegations that drove him out promise to follow him into retirement.
The California attorney general's office has launched a criminal investigation of Filner, and the San Diego County Sheriff's Department has been interviewing his accusers.
The only scheduled event marking his final day Friday was a mock celebration by accusers who gave him several parting gifts, including a mirror that attorney Gloria Allred said he can look at when asking who's to blame for his resignation.
The former 10-term congressman had no public appearances scheduled. His spokeswoman didn't respond to messages seeking comment on his whereabouts.
City Council President Todd Gloria becomes interim mayor. He said he would interview Filner's staff and hoped to keep most in their jobs.
