The troubles are mounting for San Francisco Supervisor Ed Jew.
California Attorney General Jerry Brown is allowing a lawsuit that is seeking to remove San Francisco Supervisor Ed Jew from office to move forward.
City Attorney Dennis Herrera announced in June he was seeking the lawmaker's ouster over allegations that he lied about where he lived.
But the city needed the approval from the state's top prosecutor before the suit could be filed.
Meanwhile, Jew has another court date set for this morning (9:00).
He's expected to name a new attorney after his previous attorney withdrew from the case.
The rookie supervisor is facing nine felony charges in the local case over alleged election fraud.
Federal prosecutors have also charged him in a separate case of allegedly extorting $80,000 from several business owners.
