California Sen. Leland Yee indicted

From The Sacramento Bee:

Marking the next step in a sweeping FBI operation that has implicated suspended Sen. Leland Yee, a federal grand jury has indicted Yee and 28 others.

The indictment charges Yee with honest services conspiracy, wire fraud and conspiracy to deal in and import firearms. If convicted on all counts, Yee faces a sentence of 125 years in federal prison and $1.75 million in potential fines.

Also indicted were Keith Jackson, a former San Francisco School Board member and Yee fundraiser who surfaces throughout an FBI affidavit (wire fraud, engaging in business of dealing in firearms narcotics conspiracy, murder for hire, conspiracy to deal in and import firearms) and Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, a former convict who had publicly touted having reformed and re-invented himself (money laundering conspiracy to traffic contraband cigarettes, conspiracy to transport and receive stolen property in interstate commerce).

    Leland should scream racial profiling! But he does not live in Arizona.

    With this indictment, it’s really, REALLY hard not to want to “spike the ball”! There are still others out there remaining to be named such as “Senator 1”, “Senator 2” and “Legislator 1” as mentioned in the 137-page complaint!
    I hope that sentencing not be “lumped together” and he will sit in prison for the rest of his life!
    KUDOS to the FBI for their great job on this!

    How long before we hear Yee was just running his own little “Fast and Furious” gun sting op? California government is corrupt. Convict them all.
