Ross Mirkarimi Admirers Ask Mayor Ed Lee to Back Off Suspended Sheriff

It might be hard to find anyone vocally supporting Ross Mirkarimi right now, but those who are will certainly let you know it. There's a small legion of Ross supporters who are refusing to leave his side as he prepares to testify tomorrow in hopes of getting his job back as San Francisco sheriff.

Tami Bryant, a hardcore Ross fan, says this political pile-up on Mirkarimi has gone too far, and she wants anyone and everyone who still has a shred of respect for the suspended sheriff to rally in support of him. That means coming to the hearings tomorrow, and kicking in some cash for his legal defense.

“They're coming after Ross pretty hard. They have unlimited resources and Ross has practically none,” says the I Stand with Ross campaign. “What's happening in San Francisco is unprecedented. The price tag to defame and oust Sheriff Mirkarimi has exceeded $1 million — taxpayer dollars!”
