CA Lawmakers Suspend Three Disgraced Senators with Pay

From The Sacramento Bee:

The California state Senate today took the unprecedented step of suspending three of its members who have been accused of crimes including corruption, perjury and conspiracy to traffic weapons — a move that takes away their power but maintains their pay.

With a vote of 28-1, senators ousted colleagues Democrats Leland Yee of San Francisco, Ron Calderon of Montebello and Rod Wright of Baldwin Hills with a resolution that says they can’t resume office “until all criminal proceedings currently pending against them have been dismissed.”

Expelling them would be premature, Senate leader Darrell Steinberg said, because Yee and Calderon have not been convicted of their corruption charges and Wright is waiting to see if the judge in his perjury trial upholds the jury’s guilty verdict.

  1. With pay ???? That’s a slap in the face to all California Citizens, and the honest elected officials.

  2. With Pay? for crying out loud,if the corruption in the Ca state govt running rampant isn’t enough, keep it going eh? everyone of these officials need investigated, assets (if you can find them) need frozen while doing so. Election fraud in this state is terrible. elected officials violating their oaths to state and federal “Constitutions” on a daily basis. The money laundering, blatant abuse of tax payers money and the list goes on, Do these officials “really” think they will not be held accountable?

  3. The Scotsman says

    These clowns are accused of criminal activity (in other words “CRIME” or Law Violations”). Losing their “So Called Power” of being a State Senator these clowns are Still Being Paid Their Multi-Thousand Dollar Salary? I used to work for a California State Agency and when you were suspended, your pay stopped. Why NOT these guys?
    OH! I know why. They are State Senators and they ARE ABOVE THE LAW. So, they just don’t come to work, have a vote or whatever else.
    BUT, THEY STILL GET OUR TAX DOLLAR PAY.
    These clowns have done criminal acts (violated the law) so now they can sit at home or on some Pacific Vacation island and still get paid their gross salaries!
    WRONG!

  4. This proves our Legistatures are thieves.
    Why else would they allow THREE CONSPRITORS to continue receiving pay checks when they should be locked up in JAIL
    AWAY WITH ALL OF THEM IN THE NEXT ELECTION.
    WAKE UP CALIFORNIA!
