California: San Francisco Sheriff facing Misconduct hearing, claims recall is the right way to go

Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, who faced relentless criticism and calls for his ouster after a domestic violence charge, is trying to avoid being tossed out by the Board of Supervisors. Mirkarimi has gained some supporters, including the "San Francisco League of Pissed-Off Voters." Nine of 11 supervisors have to approve for Mirkarimi to be kicked out. 
Note this comment (a reversal from what we normally hear):
Mirkarimi knows supervisors are in a tough political predicament, but he argues that the proper way to remove an elected official is through a recall election.
