Ethics Commission to Send Mirkarimi Findings to SF Supes
San Francisco's Ethics Commission is now ready to send to the Board of Supervisors its findings that suspended Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi engaged in official misconduct when he grabbed and bruised his wife’s arm last year. But it’s still unknown when supervisors will vote on Mirkarimi's future.
Once supervisors receive the commission's report, they’ll have 30 days to decide whether to dismiss or reinstate the sheriff.
Mirkarimi’s attorneys requested a delay so the five supervisors facing re-election aren’t swayed by election-year pressure.
But commission chair Benedict Hur says he will decide when the supervisors will get the official findings.
“My understanding is that a decision like that has been delegated to the chair,” Hur said.
He didn’t say when he would make a decision. Hur was the lone dissenting vote in the commission's ruling against Mirkarimi.
