Ross Mirkarimi Supporters to Rally at Noon

Sheriff-in-limbo Ross Mirkarimi probably didn't get much sleep last night, as today the Ethics Commission will make a recommendation on whether or not the embattled pol should remain our county sheriff or get booted from office, effectively ending his political career in San Francisco.

The last leg of the Ethics Hearing is in session this morning, and the commission is expected to make a recommendation about his future. Mayor Ed Lee reportedly remains unwavering in his position that Mirkarimi, who, earlier this year, pleaded guilty to false imprisonment connected to a domestic dispute with his wife, has no business being the county's top cop.

But for every critic, there's a supporter of Mirkarimi, including San Francisco's inmates — and you will find some of those folks rallying outside City Hall at noon, demanding the mayor and the Ethics Commission leave Mirkarimi alone once and for all.
