"California State Senator Leland Yee (D), a driving force behind California's legislative efforts to restrict minors' access to violent video games, has been arrested on charges of bribery and corruption, according to numerous local media reports.
Yee, who is running for California Secretary of State, saw his office raided by FBI agents this morning in service of multiple arrest and search warrants, according to Sacramento's KCRA. The raid follows a grand jury indictment of Yee, asreported by San Francisco's ABC7. Sacramento's Fox 40 reports that concurrent, related raids are being conducted on Chinatown locations with possible drug connections.
[UPDATE: Charging documents and a press release published by the Department of Justice charge Yee with firearms trafficking and six counts of fraud. Yee allegedly accepted donations over legal limits from an undercover FBI agent in exchange for "multiple official acts." The arrest dragnet also includes many members of the allegedly criminal Chee Kung Tong organization, including leader Raymond “Shrimpboy” Chow.]
