Supervisors reinstate Mirkarimi, rejecting Lee’s interpretation of official misconduct | SF Politics OH HELL YEA!!!

Supervisors reinstate Mirkarimi, rejecting Lee’s interpretation of official misconduct | SF Politics.

This is the first victory for the old progressive SF since our awful and horrid mayor ED LEE took (stole) office!

See folks.  No matter how much political witch hunting and lies and public pushing of their agenda, the truth still rules the law!  I think greedy Ed Lee fucked himself up by lying on the stand when asked if he tried to talk him into stepping down and he said no because he not only asked Ross, but a couple other sups.  including Aaron Peskin who said he would not lie and take the stand if called.

This is the beginning of the end for our fucked up mayor Ed Lee.  I hope at least.  He deserves to be recalled!  What a waist of tax payer money!!

An open letter to San Francisco Supervisors. This vote against Mirkarimi will show if you have been bought off too. We are watching!

San Francisco has been a part of me since before i was ever born.  I came here at least every month as a child and teen because my grandma lived here and we were pretty much her only family.  My parents met while my dad was working at Perry’s the first year they opened in the 1960’s while my mom, she worked at The Cooperage.  And not only that!  I am also an ancestor of Levi Strauss, Sigmund Stern and Daniel Koshland Sr. and Jr. as well as the Haas’s.

My ancestors helped build this city that has been my home ever since i could get away after graduating high school down in Santa Cruz.  I have lived here in San Francisco myself now approaching two decades.  It was always home.  There was never any question.  It was the place i could be me and feel inspired not shunned.

What made this town so different was its modern, diverse, and accepting, progressive mindset.  It was like a little european city right here in America.  Free thinking, individual, intelligent, independent and accepting of all and anything no matter if it was not just like you or me.  It had this sense of class and worldly-ness about it.  It was beautiful in physical aspects but also in its symbiotic diversity.  I was so fucking proud to have had the path that lead me to this place that i have been researching this town just to know it as well as i possibly can ever since.

I sit here with anger, shame and fear in my heart after seeing the representatives of my fair wonderland bow to the political pressure that this conservative hijacking has laid on.  Shame on you!  You work for us.  I know that your future career moves and possibilities is i am sure important, but you have sold out and sold us down the river to big money and political wranglings.  When exactly did we swap out the leaders of our people who knew what was right and what was WAY WRONG for those that are willing to go against the want of their own people or the government bylaws?

You know it, I know it and a lot of other long term or just saine and aware people know it… that this is a witch hunt.  To get out a progressive who would actually hold some power so that you can cash in on the selling out of this city.  You should be feeling a little twitch in the base of your abdomen when you read this because you know it is the truth and you know it is YOUR selling out that is doing long term detrimental harm to us all.

I lived in 94117 for about 14 of the last 2 decades and let me tell you.  We LOVED having Ross Mirkarimi as our district rep.  He was out in the neighborhood all the time.  He was approachable and always had time to talk with anyone who wanted to talk with him even if he was having a coffee or going somewhere.  He IS a great leader who TRULY CARES FOR SAN FRANCISCO.  Or at least what we all thought San Francisco was.

You all alone, are solely responsible for tearing a family apart.  Both parties were forcibly separated for political reasons.  That is far more abuse than any single piece of this actual situation.  You should feel sick.  You should feel the shame.  You should know that with every dollar of OUR money that you spend and or make, make you are a fraud.

You have one more chance to make things right.  One last vote to allow Ross Mirkarimi to keep his well earned job.  You know that the guidelines for having him removed have not been met.  If there is one progressive left out there with deep pockets to back him, he could take it all the way to the top courts in this state and would win and you know it.  Prove to us, YOUR REAL BOSSES, the CITIZENS, that you still have a kernel of credibility and gusto and vote for what WE WANT AND VOTED FOR!!  You have no right to take away our vote.  You rendered the citizens vote worthless and the reprocussions of that reach farther than you or even your generation could possibly know.  Do NOT hand over this last piece of utopia to those who are truly evil because greed is their motivation!  Please!  Please let our votes be heard!

Please do not vote Ross Mirkarimi out of office!  Dont break the hearts and souls of your people.  Show us why San Francisco is so great!  …Or show us that there is nothing left here.  Nothing.  No soul, no voice, no pride. Nothing.

Please dont break the dreams for many by giving in to this coup!  I beg you!

Thank you for listening.  I am counting on you to think for yourself and vote with your conscience in clear view.  Every move you make is going to determine wether you are a worthy leader or a fraud.  We are watching very carefully.  This is your only chance at salvaging any possible reputation you may have with us, the citizens who know this town and KNOW what you are actually so far, getting away with, is a SHAM!

The vote of the people has got to be worth something to you all.  It is afterall what you needed in order to be in this position that you are now in.  If you take away our vote and the power and credibility of our vote, please think about how many generations that are still to come that you are taking from.  This is not just about the now, not about Ross Mirkirami.  This is about the basic foundation that created this country to be what we all think (or thought) it was.  The free vote of the people.

I understand how on a national scale, the power of the people has little power, but in our very own neighborhoods, it is crucial!  It is the only way to have a composed functioning metropolis.  This is so important i just do not know what else i could try to say in order to impress this to you.

Please DO NOT VOTE TO REMOVE ROSS MIRKARIMI FROM OFFICE.  If that is what was to happen, you would have to be then knowingly not going by the legal guidelines to do so.  So you would be making up the laws as you go and that is NOT democracy!

We will wait and watch and pray that we still have the city we all love so much and not another plastictopia.

Thank you for your time!

Sincerely,

Emelie Koshland

Our Sheriff has been witch hunted by the conservatives that took over SF city govt.

This is my plea to our dear citizens of San Francisco.  Please take a closer look at this case for outing Ross Mirkirimi our newly elected sheriff.  This was not a shock to me that they would try something like this.

After the election i was talking with some friends about the outcome of our new city government officials.  I found it VERY peculiar that almost every post EXCEPT our sheriff’s election went to the most conservative candidate.  San Francisco has not nor has ever been conservative.  Unless there are seriously not any true local residents that go back farther than 6 or 8 years and everyone that used to live in SF has left….  I know it has become much more gentrified in San Francisco within the last 18 years, but to remove the deep seeded neighborhood activism and liberal stances i dont think would happen.  At least not this fast.

What makes this city so awesome is the residents abilities to think for themselves.  Not to be sheep.  Not to believe everything you hear even twice!  I hear the chatter in the streets but none of it on the news.  Everyone, EVERYONE I have talked to about this case has said it is extremely strange.  How is it that the wife doesnt want to press charges, or even testify yet, the case revolves around her.  Have you EVER heard of a district attorney filing a restraining order for ANYONE other than themselves??  NEVER!  I did not even know it could be done personally.

The far left that is doing a good job of taking over our fair city, has taken what i would regard as yes, Mr. Sheriff, a personal matter, and made it a huge ordeal just to slander Mr. Mirkarimi’s reputation in order to get him out of the only office that has still some power outside city hall.

I do not condone what happened.  He did behave badly, but THIS… THIS WHAT THEY HAVE DONE is more abusive to anyone’s civil rights and personal rights than him brusing his wife on the arm.  He did not hit her, he did not slap her, he did not lock her in their home, he didnt take away her communication devices.  He grabbed her too hard while in an argument.  This is not right, but it not anywhere close to bad enough to have to go to jail for or even worse… resign.

Hold on tight for all of us on the right Mr. Mirkarimi!!   You represented me for years in 94117, please dont let them take the best city government official we’ve got taken away!  Dont let them prop 8 you!!  We all support you!

DO NOT RESIGN!!!

There is something really fishy here with Ross Mirkarimi’s BS DV charges….

When i read this post on KRON 4 News…

Facebook Question: Should Ross Mirkarimi step down from his position as SF Sheriff?

My answer is this:

ABSOLUTELY NOT. Mirkirimi, HOLD YOUR GROUND! You are all us progressives have left to believe in and they are trying to get you out already through the biggest BS slander campaign. Has ANYONE EVER seen a situation where the district attorney files a protective order for another person? She did not want the stay away order and they forcibly imposed it to try and separate this family. When the wife is as outraged as the husband who supposedly “abused” her, about the charges, then this shows me that it is just the inner circle trying to get him gone before he gets a chance to do his HONEST job. Mirkirmi was my district sup. for all the years he was one for the west. add. He was AWESOME! Please people, see this for what it is… A slam campaign to try to force out the guy that may be too honest for those crooks liking. To prove my point, check this out… see anything wrong on this article?

There is a lot more to this story than the press is letting on. It smells SUPER stinky to me. The one that i really want to know about regarding what her motivations were is Ivory Madison, the “80 hour a week workaholic with perfect husband and daughter” (according to her fb page). She stinks up the whole town when it comes to thing smelling fishy! There are personal motivations that are not being discussed here i am sure of it!

 

It deeply disturbs me that we as a public are still so blinded by the exact same words in 1 single story re published all over and re reported everywhere.  There is a lot more here than meets the eye.  The fact that people think it is ok to treat this man like a brutalizer is just plain crazy.  What was this crazy nosey woman doing filming her neighbors on New Years Eve?  If they did  not know she was filming them, that could be a felony offense.  This whole thing just has the exact footprints of a tacky smear campaign.  The scary thing is, it is being bought as it is being sold onto the best man in our current government in San Francisco.  And, this is coming from an 8th generation SFer who has lived here for 18 years (and in Mr. Mirkarimi’s district for 15 of those 18 years.)  I have seen him in action many times and he is the only rep i ever saw going into his district to shop, dine and just check in regularly.  I am bothered to my core by this bullshit take down campaign.  San ‘Francisco truly has been bought and sold just like the rest of them.  It breaks my heart.  San Francisco was supposed to be grassroots and involved. Not greedy and ignorant.  What is happening here to the closest place that one ONCE could have called Oz?
