Ethics Commission Recommends Miscondoct Charges for Mirkarimi

The San Francisco Ethics Commission has voted to recommend official misconduct charges against suspended Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi. The commission dismissed several of Mayor Ed Lee’s charges relating to witness dissuasion and interfering with a police investigation. But the commission’s findings say Mirkarimi engaged in official misconduct in a December 31st incident where he grabbed and bruised his wife’s arm during an argument. Christopher Martinez files this report from San Francisco.
