Saying taxpayers shouldn't have to foot the bill for the mayor's "mess," the San Diego City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night not to pay any of Bob Filner's legal bills as he fights a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by one of his top aides.

The move came just hours after the council voted — also unanimously — to sue Filner to recover any costs imposed on the city by the lawsuit, which names both Filner and the city as defendants.
