Ross Mirkarimi Uses Zombie Costume to Get Out the Vote

Posted By on Tue, Nov 1, 2011 at 8:10 AM

With Election Day one week away, most candidates are tripping over themselves to get your vote. And then there's Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, who is choosing to scare people into voting for him for San Francisco sheriff.

We're not sure if other pols dressed up for Halloween last night (maybe David Chiu donned his Chiubacca costume?), but Mirkarimi, who we would say is typically more sardonic than scary, reshaped his image last night, as he traversed the streets of San Francisco dressed like a living corpse.

Mirkarimi, who is the frontrunner in the race, made his point clear with his zombie costume (although it loses its effect with the suit and hat, which he's clearly auditioning to go with his ubiquitous vests). But just in case you still don't get it, Mirkarimi announced on KTVU last night that everyone must get out the vote or they will be visited by a zombie.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
