Rumors may keep S.F. lawyer from city position…

L. Julius M.Turman recently applied for a vacant seat on the city’s Police Commission, prompting SF Weekly and the SF Appeal to revisit a 2006 accusation of domestic abuse leveled by an ex-boyfriend. It was a messy affair: the boyfriend first declined to press charges, then changed his mind; Turman said he was just defending himself; ultimately he wasn’t charged, and settled a civil suit with the boyfriend.

Here is where it gets messy for Turman.

Now that Turman’s in the running for a seat on the Police Commission, rumors have started afresh that District Attorney Kamala Harris (who went on to become the Prop-8-opposing Attorney General of California) declined to prosecute Turman as a favor, since Turman had clout with a local political club. via queerty
