Oh My!

developing…

Sources confirm [CA] State Senator Leland Yee has been indicted for public corruption.

A series of search warrants are being executed by the FBI across the Bay Area this morning. ABC7 News has learned they are making numerous arrests in a widespread sweep involving suspected gang members.

This follows;

Sen. Ron Calderon will take an indefinite leave of absence while he fights felony charges.

The charges include 24 federal corruption charges, involving allegations that he accepted at least $100,000 in bribes and gifts, including $88,000 in payoffs from an undercover FBI agent.

The FBI is into The Nest. Go, Boyz!! Go!!!

One of the searches is taking place at the San Francisco Chinatown office of the Gee King Tong Free Masons and is linked to the arrest this morning of Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow.

Mr ShrimpBoy has his own wikipedia page:

Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, born Kwok Cheung (Chinese: 周國祥) in 1959 in Hong Kong,[1] is a Chinese American former triad member who once was the second-highest-ranking member of the American branch of the Hong Kong-based triad Wo Hop To.[2] Before his association with Wo Hop To, he was the leader of the Hop Sing Boys, a San Francisco Chinatown street gang that has been described as “enforcers for the Hop Sing Tong”,[3] where he was present at the Golden Dragon massacre in 1977.[1] (5 people dead and 11 others injured, none of whom were gang members )

…On March 26, 2014, Raymond Chow was arrested during an FBI raid, possibly in connection with an investigation into alleged corruption by State Senator Leland Yee.

Here’s ShrimpBoy’s FB page.

Leland Yee has a wiki page, too.

In 1992, Yee was arrested for the alleged shoplifting of a bottle of tanning oil from the KTA Superstore in Kona’s Keauhow Shopping Village. The case was not prosecuted, as Yee disappeared before he could be prosecuted.

    Okay, by my count that’s 3 CA State Senators that should be thrown out.

    Rod Wright has been convicted of 8 felonies, but is still a Senator. He’s been granted a leave of absence with pay.

    Ron Calderon has been arraigned on bribery charges, and is also being paid while awaiting trial.

    State Senate President pro tempore Steinberg has an overwhelming majority in the Senate, and will NOT give it up – even for obvious corruption.

    And I denounce myself for being racist in the face of such grand diversity displayed by the voters of California.

    Trick question:
    How do we know they’re Democrats?

    ^ ‘Cause the Lamestreams would’ve prominently mentioned party affiliation if they were Pubs.

    …leave of absence with pay.
    I guess he and Lois Lerner are shacking up.
    Getting paid and getting laid. It’s good to be a Democrat.

    Kalifornicateya Republicans ain`t virgins neither. We got Randy Cunningham (USN Ace in Vietnam…) serving time for corruption as a former Congressman. He was an asshole when he was a TopGun instructor as a Commander. He was awarded a Navy Cross, but he threw a snit fit, saying he should have gotten a Medal of Honor! And just prior to the award ceremony, he told the TopGun Commanding Officer he wasn`t gonna accept a mere Navy Fucking Cross!!!!!

    The CO pinned his ass to the bulkhead and gave him a direct order to STFU & and git his ass down to the formation on the hangar deck and take his Navy Cross. He did!!!!

    One time during an exercise in Yuma, AZ. I led a flight of 4 F-18 Hornets and we bounced a flight of 4 USN Tomcats and got kill shots on all of them. We called the Tomcat “A flying tennis court”; it was so big you could get a visual tally-ho at 30 miles on a clear day. Turns out that that Tomcat flight was led by, you guessed it, Randy Cunningham——

    Sondra K: Re message no 4, that is why I jumped on this
    story!

    As a rule, the surefire way to know that it is a Democrat in
    any news item regarding corruption, is they will never
    report the party affiliation if the Perp is one of their own.

    If it involves a Republican an (R) will be prominently printed
    right next the name.

    It took forever for one local paper to print the party affiliations
    of the mayor and entire city council of Bell California, in the
    biggest corruption scandal in decades.

    And in another Southern Urban setting, a newly minted Mayor of unknown political affiliation is indicted on corruption charges.

    Strange, if he were, gasp, a Republican, surely that salient fact would be noted repeatedly in large print in this HuffingtonPuffingtonPostPiece, wouldn’t it? I just don’t get it.

    Takin ‘em down from coast to coast…love to see more and more all the way to the hallowed halls of the August Senate Chambers.

    Woopsie!

    An affidavit of FBI Special Agent Emmanuel Pascua has been unsealed in support of a criminal complaint against Yee, Chow, San Francisco political consultant Keith Jackson and 23 others. Among other things, the affidavit alleges that Yee was involved in a conspiracy to traffic firearms with Jackson. The legislator is known as a strong advocate of gun control.

    I had lunch in the Golden Dragon 6 months before the massacre. Kind of creeped me out when I read about it.

    The departure of these three worthy gentlemen is cutting into the Liberal Majority in our Assembly.
