The Persecution of Ross Mirkarimi, Eliana Lopez and the Continuing Coup
Bob English
The public persecution of Ross Mirkarimi and Eliana Lopez is the latest attack in a reactionary coup. In his commitment to progressive principles/programs and marginalized, impoverished constituencies and by alarming the City's political machine and 1% financial powers - much more than for his arrogance and misdemeanor - Mirkarimi and his family are public targets, paying an extreme political and personal price. Now the question before SF Supervisors is: do they have the backbone and integrity to represent the people, respect democracy, do the right thing and vote to reinstate Mirkarimi as Sheriff?
