A veterans group is ditching its plans to honor San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. The mayor recently admitted he’s mistreated women in the work place over the years. Filner has been dogged by allegations of sexual harassment and some of his longtime backers are suggesting he step down.

The National Women Veterans Association of America was set to honor the mayor during its lifetime of leadership award benefit gala next month. Instead of receiving an award at the gala, the mayor will speak on sexual discrimination.
