Harvey Milk Club Asks Mayor Ed Lee to Leave Ross Mirkarimi Alone Already

Turns out, Tami Bryant and the inmates over at San Francisco County Jail aren't the only ones who want everyone to leave Sheriff-in-limbo Ross Mirkarimi alone. 

The Harvey Milk Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Democratic Club this week passed a resolution demanding Mayor Ed Lee let Mirkarimi go back to work and publicly apologize to Mirkarimi's wife, Eliana Lopez, for humiliating her through all of drama. They also want the city to give the sheriff back pay for the months since he was suspended after pleading guilty to false imprisonment stemming from a domestic dispute with his wife.

We at the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club are committed to justice for Eliana Lopez, Ross Mirkarimi, and their son, Theo Mirkarimi. The current process as it stands now gives us no confidence that this will take place: Over the past several months, Eliana Lopez's wishes have been blatantly disregarded, and opportunities for Ross Mirkarimi to come to terms with his behavior and the after-effects of his actions have been compromised at the altar of political spectacle.
