SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) – The judge in Ross Mirkarimi domestic violence case ruled an ex-girlfriend who said she was abused by him will be allowed to testify.

During a pretrial hearing, Christina Flores testified about an alleged physical confrontation involving the San Francisco sheriff.

Flores told the court there were four incidents of abuse when Mirkarimi was a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Flores said an incident in February 2008 turned physical. According to the ex-girlfriend, it started with an argument over women’s panties that she found at Mirkarimi’s house that were not her own.

“He said they were mine,” Flores said. “I said, ‘You’re lying …those are not mine. I know my own underwear.’”

Flores said she tried to leave, but then Mirkarimi grabbed her arm hard. When she showed him the bruise the next day, she said Mirkarimi apologized then later sent her an email referring to the incident as his “unintended, disappointing behavior.”

Flores told the court she came forward and filed her own police report after reading a news report that Eliana Lopez was recanting her story.

She felt that given what happened to her, Lopez was being bullied to change her version of events.

Flores said she was dating Mirkarimi between 2007 and 2008 and was still seeing him when Mirkarimi met Lopez and fathered a child with her.

Flores said his plan was to raise the child here. She told the court that Mirkarimi described Venezuela, where Lopez is from, as a “third world country” and “filthy.”

In the pretrial hearing Flores also said Mirkarimi had planned to set up Lopez here in an apartment to keep her as a “baby mama.”
Flores said Mirkarimi claimed “he wanted to be like Willie Brown.”

    The reference to Willy Brown is about Kamala Harris, Willy who is legally married to a lady in Texas had a child with Kamala, Willy then proceeded to get her a civil service job, which eventually lead to her being elected DA with Willy’s backing.

    Newson always looked up to Willy and tied to be just like him, he tired to get his aid’s wife pregnant, but failed.

    The list goes on including the new Sheriff, this goes to prove that progressive idiots lie and cheat as much as the conservative idiots.
