One of my favorite political analysts surmises that one reason Mayor Ed Lee has not removed Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi from office, despite the fact he has been accused of domestic violence and witness tampering, is because Lee doesnt want to empower the contingent of people who think Mirkarimi is being victimized because of politics.
Still, people feel strongly about this issue.
Mirkarimis political life is finished and he should resign, Democratic strategist Nathan Ballard told me. Hes like Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense everybody knows that Ross Mirkarimi is dead except Ross Mirkarimi. Ouch!
Indeed, the unwillingness to budge by either Lee or Mirkarimi has left enterprising San Franciscans to our own devices to express displeasure with the fact that Mirkarimi still carries a badge (but no gun) and oversees our jails.

Note that Melissa is always dead on accurate regarding all the laws, rules, regulation, and policy of SF government that monkey wrench San Francisco's workings and prevent both the joke politicians and general public from doing what they want.
Mirkarimi strikes me as the classic abuser.
He has terrorized his wife—who is from another country & will be sent back or be lost here in the USA.
He wants access to his son—who likely has witnessed some of the abuse of the wife.
She was neld captive for 18 hours & could not contact the authorities.
This man is evel.
Josh Powell dipsi-doodled under & around the radar for a number of years. His father, the porn king, did also.
We all know where that went.
Time for citizens to quit being squimish about asking questions about those who make the hair on our necks crawl.
The entire Powell family-—that which is left—will have to answer for their looking the other way for the rest of their lives, IMO. The sister of Josh Powell is still in denial. Did Daddy, the porn king, abuse her also???
They are all EVIL.
Ah,... yes. He is also the classic Marxist Utopian intellectual benevolent tyrant.
The posterboy of evil for the radical Feminist left, is also the posterboy of good for the Marxist Green Utopian agenda.
They be in a conundrum in San Francisco. (This unbelievably easy opening is provided at no extra charge by Navy Patriot)
"I resemble that remark."
Mirkarimi will never leave on his own.
He has been sucking at the government teat his whole life.
The last Sheriff served thirty years. Mirkarimi saw his election as Sheriff as his gravy train for life.
He will have to be dragged from that office.
Isn’t he elected?
Yes, of course he is. He was elected in November and sworn in in January just as this story was breaking.
The San Francisco Charter is ambiguous regarding the removal by the Mayor and Board of Supervisors of elected officials found to be abusing their offices or committing other crimes while in office.
There is also the possibility of a recall election.
The point of my post above is that in some instances officials have simply resigned in the face of rising popular and official discontent. My point is that this is unlikely to happen with Mirkarimi since this office is so valuable to him personally.
Mirkarimi was an oozing sore as a member of the SF board of supervisors, and now this career piece of liberal scum wants to be Sheriff of the County of SF. Sounds like the perfect person for the job... that is, the job in SF! Truly speaking, the lunatics are running that asylum!
I don't see a cure.
Ugh, newly elected.
