Filner set to speak at rape survivors' event next month

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Mayor Bob Filner is set to be the keynote speaker at an event benefiting victims of sexual assault in the military next month.

The National Women Veterans Association of America was going to present him with its lifetime leadership award at the gala at the U.S.S Grant Hotel. But the group has now decided against that in light of the recent sexual harassment allegations against him.

Some are asking the group to remove the mayor from the program.

The group responded on its Facebook page by saying quote "the jury is still out."
