Leland Yee arrested in connection to gun trafficking

http://www.engadget.com/2014/03/26/l...share_facebook

BY Timothy J. Seppala @timseppala 1 day ago




In a turn of events that sound an awful lot like something out of Grand Theft Auto, a prominent politician has been arrested on corruption, gun-running and money laundering charges.

The irony here is that it's California Democratic Senator Leland Yee, who was a vocal supporter of gun regulation and also authored AB-1179, the (defeated) bill that would have outlawed the sale of violent video games to the Golden State's minors.

As the San Francisco Chroniclereports, the arrest was part of a lengthy sting that brought in some 26 other perps and even involved Yee taking campaign donations from an FBI agent posing as a mafioso.

Yee's out on a $500,000 bond according to SF Weekly, but he's due back in court next week and is facing 16 years in prison.
4 weeks after Newtown I'm still shocked & prepared to take steps to stop gun violence, close assault weapon loopholes. http://t.co/JdnUSmn3
