VIA| Obama’s radical amnesty agenda just received a crushing defeat with last night’s elections.
In San Francisco, the sheriff who became famous for his role in his city’s “sanctuary city” policies lost in a massive landslide against a challenger. Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi was tossed out by voters. He was widely criticized after Mexican illegal alien Francisco Sanchez shot and killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle on San Francisco’s waterfront this Summer. Thanks to the city’s policy, the alien was released from jail in March.
But since then, the sheriff’s oversight of the department has been plagued by other high-profile mishaps and controversies seen as contributing to his defeat. He had his driver’s license briefly suspended for failing to properly report a minor accident while driving a department-issued car, and he also flunked a marksmanship test.
Before those two incidents, a drug gang leader escaped from jail, and guards were accused of staging and gambling on inmate fights.
In November 2014, Mirkarimi also was forced to apologize for the bungled search for a San Francisco General Hospital patient whose body was found in a stairwell weeks after she wandered from her room. The sheriff is in charge of the hospital’s security, but deputies didn’t search the building until nine days after her disappearance. The city paid the patient’s family $3 million to settle a lawsuit.
