SAN DIEGO, Cal. -- San Diego Mayor Bob Filner says he will undergo therapy after less than a year in office amid allegations that he sexually harassed women.

Filner announced his plan Friday for a two-week stay in a behavioral clinic after a series of women claimed he kissed, groped and placed them in headlocks.

Filner apologized to voters, his staff and the women he allegedly harassed, and added: "I must take responsibly for my conduct."

Filner said he will receive twice-a-day briefings about city operations while taking part in what he described as "intensive therapy" beginning Aug. 5.

Filner did not take any questions after the nationally televised announcement that was briefly interrupted by a microphone problem.
