San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said Friday that he would find it "extremely difficult" to work again with Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi if the suspended lawman gets his job back.So the mayor is trying to punish Mirkarimi for domestic violence, even tho there was no conviction for that.
Lee made his remarks while testifying before the city's Ethics Commission, which has convened a trial-like hearing to determine whether to recommend that the Board of Supervisors remove Mirkarimi from office.
The mayor cited Mirkarimi with misconduct and suspended him without pay in March, shortly after the sheriff pleaded guilty to misdemeanor false imprisonment for bruising his wife's arm during a New Year's Eve dispute. ...
Mirkarimi took a plea deal and avoided trial two months after he pleaded not guilty to child endangerment and multiple domestic violence charges.
"I came to the conclusion that he committed domestic violence," Lee said, adding that Mirkarimi's brief stay in the jail he runs and subsequent plea helped him make his decision. ...
The neighbor, Ivory Madison, had recorded a video of a tearful Lopez discussing the purported abuse. She later gave the video to police. ...
Mirkarimi's woes began when he and Lopez became involved in an argument over whether she could travel to her native Venezuela with their 3-year-old son.
Mirkarimi admitted to bruising her arm with an overly firm grip. After pleading guilty to misdemeanor false imprisonment, Mirkarimi was sentenced to probation and counseling.
These are all leftist Democrats. The Left is ideologically committed to destroying the family.
This is all over an arm bruise from a firm grip. And a busybody neighbor who took a picture of the bruise in order to instigate a child custody dispute. The incident was 6 months ago, and the husband and wife are court-ordered not to talk to each other.
Think about that> Mirkarimi and Lopez are a married couple with a small son. He has made no complaint against her and she has made no complaint against him. A neighbor disapproved of an argument that they had. So the authorities are out to destroy them by firing him from his elected job, ending the marriage, and sending her back to S. America. The boy will surely grow up without one of his parents.
This is from leftists who just spent $100 million on San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Celebration, where they celebrate BDSM as if it were a religion. And also other stuff that is too perverted for me to put on this blog.
Imagine if the wife got the bruise while they were role-playing or doing some kinky bondage play. Or maybe even ordinary sexual intercourse. Would that be actionable?
Supposedly the New Year's fight was over Lopez taking the son to Venezuela. That is where they are now, since they are ordered to stay away from Mirkarimi.
Mirkarimi's Wikipedia page says:
Mirkarimi has been involved in these civic and community service activities: Director for SF Nuclear Freeze Zone Coalition; union negotiator for DAI Association union; member of the IFPTE Local 2; member of the Harvey Milk Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender Democratic Club; member of the Iranian-American Chamber of Commerce; environmental analyst for the Harvard Study Team (Iraq) Bayview Hunters Point, California Base Closures; and member of the National Organization for Women (NOW).So he subscribes to a bunch of dopey leftist-feminist causes. Some people only learn the hard way.
Lopez is from Venezuela and Mirkarimi's family is from Iran. These are the two most anti-American countries on Earth. He lives in a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah, and he is a leftist politician who has allied himself with every anti-family and anti-American cause. Lee's family is from mainland China.
"Don't you think the honorable thing to do would've been to resign?" Keith asked the sheriff.This is pathetic. The honorable thing to do would have been to cancel his leftist-feminist memberships, repudiate his anti-family ideology, defend his right to grip his wife, and challenge Lee to a duel.
Mirkarimi replied, "That's a hard question and that's a hard one to answer. ... I did exactly as I should."
Mirkarimi told the commission later that, in hindsight, he wishes he had a better strategy to deal with the media and subsequent fallout from his actions.
"It was an overwhelming event and continued to be an overwhelming event in the way I was branded," Mirkarimi said. "I was sad, humiliated. I lost my family," he said.
"My past was tarnished and sullied and my future uncertain. I certainly wished we were more on top of this."
