SAN FRANCISCO — A San Francisco supervisor who voted to reinstate embattled Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi to his job says she would still support a recall effort to remove him from office.
In a statement to her constituents, Supervisor Jane Kim said Wednesday that her faith in Mirkarimi as a person and sheriff has greatly diminished and that voters have every right to recall him as sheriff.
Kim was one of four supervisors who voted on Tuesday to keep Mirkarimi as sheriff despite his criminal conviction related to a domestic violence case.
Mirkarimi pleaded guilty in March to a misdemeanor charge of false imprisonment stemming from a New Year's Eve dispute with his wife, Venezuelan actress Eliana Lopez.
He is expected back at work next week.
