You’ve heard stories about democrat politicians being arrested or indicted so often I almost hesitated to write about this, but here goes. CA Senator Leland Yee-D from San Francisco, and a candidate for Secretary of State was just arrested by the FBI on corruption charges. This came as FBI agents made a sweep across California investigating wide corruption by elected officials.
No doubt this has a lot of lawmakers in Sacramento more than a little nervous. Well, to PS readers this comes as no surprise, does it? We’ve long held that Sacramento is one of the most corrupt capitols in the US.
Reuters – A spokesman for Yee declined to comment. Yee is scheduled to appear in federal court later on Wednesday.
Yee was elected to the California state senate in 2006, representing a district which includes San Francisco and San Mateo County south of the city. He is the first Chinese American elected to the chamber.
