Suspended state Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) has chosen a new lawyer to defend him against federal public corruption and gun trafficking charges.
FBI agents on Tuesday searched a legislative office belonging to state Sen. Leland Yee, a San Francisco Democrat who was arrested and charged last week as part of a wider federal investigation into criminal activity in San Francisco’s Chinatown.
Democratic State Senator Leland Yee was arrested Wednesday morning in a series of federal raids in the Bay Area and Sacramento targeting an alleged corruption conspiracy involving arms trafficking and campaign fraud to fund his campaign for Secretary of State.
At a news conference Wednesday, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg of Sacramento warned that fellow Democrats will immediately suspend the San Francisco Democrat unless he steps down.
On Wednesday, there is widespread shock about Leland Yee’s arrest, and how much he may have been hiding.
