Ex-Sheriff Mirkarimi is Now Working at . . . ?
I heard this bit of San Francisco news at a party over the weekend from a marijuana advocate.
Former sheriff Ross Mirkarimi is now the big boss at the Bay Area Safe Alternatives Collective and started his new gig last week. A call to the BASA Collective on Grove and Divisadero confirmed what I was told at the party.
After a career in elective politics, serving as a member of the Board of Supervisors and then sheriff where his controversial tenure was clouded by his physical and mental abuse of his wife Eliana Lopez, looks like he'll be employed in the pot industry from now on.
Let's hope he doesn't falsely imprison anyone as he did Lopez, and for which he copped a guilty misdemeanor plea.
