Suspended San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi claims powerful city leaders are writing their own rules.

In an interview on KGO Radio, Mirkarimi said the Ethics Commission hearings proved city leaders will do anything to remove him from office. He said, "This city is about ready to go into a constitutional crisis. By the fact that they might be manipulating what are vague parts of the charter in order to apply those ambiguities towards favoring a powerful office, meaning the chief executive, the mayor, to try and oust another elected peer."

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors will now decide if Mirkarimi will permanently lose his job.
