After nine months, San Francisco's most readable political drama just might come to an end today, as the Board of Supervisors is set to vote on whether or not to boot Ross Mirkarimi from his post as county sheriff.
The sheriff-in-limbo could lose his job permanently if nine of the 11 city supervisors say so; the board is scheduled to meet at 2 p.m. today for his hearing.
“I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up 7-to-4 to keep him or 11-0 to
remove him,” University of San Francisco political scientist Corey Cook told the Washington Post. “We don't know what to expect. It's been such a roller
coaster that I can't even venture a guess.”
