Ex-Calif. State Sen. Leland Yee, gun control champion, heading to prison for weapons trafficking

(From The Washington Post)

This Wednesday, Yee received a five-year prison sentence for accepting bribes and trafficking in arms…

…Breyer was unsympathetic to the calls for leniency. While holding public office, Yee had accepted thousands of dollars in campaign contributions in exchange for political favors. And on the side, he and two associates had been involved in a weapons trafficking plot…

…Another time, while serving on the city school board, Yee reportedly registered his children under a fake address so they could attend a better school…

…Rose Pak, a “Chinatown powerbroker,” told the Guardian that Yee had “no moral character.” She rattled off a list of her (unconfirmed) suspicions — “How did the guy manage to buy a million-dollar house on a $30,000 City Hall salary?” — but the gist was clear: Pak didn’t trust him.
