Iranian-American San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi is under investigation for domestic abuse.
I saw this story about the allegations of domestic abuse against Iranian-American San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi about a week ago.
Mirkarimi is alleged to have bruised his wife’s arm, Venezuelan-born Eliana Lopez on New Year’s Eve. The allegations were serious enough and I thought that given the number of bloggers on this site from the Bay Area, the story would have been made it to the top of the page, but it has been a total silence. So here it is.
Let me be clear. Both Mr. Mirkarimi and his wife have denied the charges, but there were enough reasons for the District Attorney to arraign Mirkarimi for misdemeanor charges of domestic violence battery.
Here is an analysis of the story by the San Francisco Chronicle.
