Imagine, a Democrat anti-gun zealot from California is arrested for corruption…
…and firearm trafficking.
Ah, it feels so wrong to feel so good about this.
Yee was running for state-wide office.
Our guess is that the low-information voters in California might actually still elect him.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —State Sen. Leland Yee was escorted into San Francisco’s Federal Building wearing handcuffs after he was arrested Wednesday morning during a series of raids in the Bay Area and Sacramento.
NBC Bay Area was first to report that Yee, a Democrat, was detained by federal agents on charges that include public corruption.

A second man, Raymond Chow, was also arrested, according to the FBI.
Chow was reportedly the head of Ghee Kung Tong, one of several fraternal organizations in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Chow had returned to Chinatown after serving time in prison on gun charges.
