Actually it was the curse of Ross Mirkarimi that ultimately sunk Jane Kim. Some voters have long memories. She along with John Avalos, David Campos, and Christina Olague voted to let Mirkarimi keep his job as sheriff. Mirkarimi lost his reelection bid to Vicki Hennessy, Olague lost her supervisor’s seat to London Breed, Avalos lost his mayor’s bid to Ed Lee, and Campos lost his California Assembly bid to David Chiu. Perhaps, the Mirkarimi curse has now run its course.
