For anyone interested in dissecting the latest poll commissioned by a group of anti-domestic violence advocates, which claims 61 percent of San Francisco registered voters think suspended Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi should be removed from office, you can find it here.
The survey of 500 San Franciscans last week and released Wednesday, was conducted by North Carolina-based company Public Policy Polling at a cost of $2,000, paid for by philanthropist and Democratic Party donor JaMel Perkins, Roselyne “Cissie” Swig, Status of Women Commissioner Andrea Shorter, former Gavin Newsom policy director Joyce Newstat and community activist Janice Mirikitani, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Newstat, who contributed to the Chris Cunnie campaign for sheriff, also contributed to the La Casa De Las Madres anti-Mirkarimi billboard campaign.
The poll was released following an Ethic Commission decision last week which found Mirkarimi guilty on two of six counts of official misconduct.
