Buried under the Rainbow and Confederate flag controversies in the past week and just before the Independence Day weekend, was the guilty plea entered by California’s top racketeer and wanna be gun runner, former State Senator, Leland Yee. The timing of the guilty plea appears to have been perfectly planned (which is typical for releasing information that could potentially anger the masses) so few Conservatives outside the state of California would read about it.
As reported by the Sacramento Bee, California’s Liberal State Senator Yee, who was a huge advocate of gun control and was arrested in March 2014 during his run for Secretary of State, pled guilty to ONE felony count of racketeering!! Seriously?? This guy, who was a sitting State Senator and running for the office of Secretary of State, admitted to exchanging political favors for campaign contributions, extorting individuals who had interests in pending legislation and offered a little help with a multi-million dollar arms deal that included a source tied to the Muslim rebel groups in the Philippines, is allowed to plead guilty to ONE felony count?? Of Racketeering??
If this was private citizen John Doe from anywhere USA you can be certain a plea deal this lenient wouldn’t have been made. Talk about your ruling class…
Yee is looking at up to $250,000.00 in fines and up to 20 years in prison, according to the Sacramento Bee, and the sentencing is scheduled for October 21. I wouldn’t recommend betting on a high fine or a long prison sentence for this corrupt hypocrite since the people handling the negotiations for the State appear to be handing out their own favors.
