Anti-Gun Democrat Pol Leland Yee Arrested on Gun-Running Charges

It would be a joy to watch Democrat pols crash and burn, if we didn’t know that for every one who gets caught, there are a thousand other corrupt lowlifes to take his place. But at least we get to say good-bye to rabidly anti-gun moonbat Leland Yee, who has been arrested on corruption and gun-running charges:

A California state senator who authored gun control legislation asked for campaign donations in exchange for introducing an undercover FBI agent to an arms trafficker, according to court documents unsealed Wednesday.

The allegations against Sen. Leland Yee were outlined in an FBI criminal complaint that names 25 other defendants, including Raymond Chow, a onetime gang leader with ties to San Francisco’s Chinatown known as “Shrimp Boy,” and Keith Jackson, Yee’s campaign aide. The affidavit accuses Yee of conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms.

Yee is also accused of accepting tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions and cash payments to provide introductions, help a client get a contract and influence legislation. He or members of his campaign staff accepted at least $42,800 in cash or campaign contributions from undercover FBI agents in exchange for carrying out the agents’ specific requests, the court documents allege.

Investigators said Yee discussed helping the agent get weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired missiles, and explained the entire process of acquiring them from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines to bringing them to the U.S., according to an affidavit by FBI agent Emmanuel V. Pascua.

They say the most enthusiastic supporters of drug laws are the drug dealers kept in business by them. Apparently the same applies to gun laws in some quarters.

So long as authorities are arresting anti-gun zealots who are involved in gun-running, too bad they don’t pursue the much more egregious case of Eric Holder — and Obama himself.

Despite having expressed a desire to hide out in the Philippines, Yee was released on bail, unlike Chow. Nonetheless, he must wish Obama had succeeded in politicizing the FBI to the same extent as he has the IRS. As a Democrat, Yee wouldn’t be in this mess. His sentence could be as much as 125 years.

Yee ran for Mayor of San Francisco in 2011, and currently has been angling for California Secretary of State. That office oversees elections and campaign finance reporting. Considering the conspicuous tendency of Democrats to engage in election fraud, the position would have been an excellent fit.

At the rate they are getting arrested on corruption charges, Democrats could lose their iron grip on the California legislature:

Yee is the third Democratic state senator in California to face criminal charges this year. Sen. Rod Wright was convicted of perjury and voter fraud for lying about his legal residence in Los Angeles County, and Sen. Ron Calderon has been indicted on federal corruption charges. Wright and Calderon are taking a voluntary leave of absence, with pay, although Republicans have called for them to be suspended or expelled.

You would think that a fairly prominent anti-gun politician arrested for gun-running would be a major blow to the Democrat Party. But by now, the public is so used to its brazen hypocrisy that this is unlikely to discredit it further.

Saul Alinsky — a guiding light for top Dems Obama and Shrillary — advised socialists to “make opponents live up to their own book of rules.” This strategy is highly effective against Republicans; the slightest moral flaw can set them against each other, or cause them to slink off in self-reproach. But it cannot be used against Democrats, because they have no moral rules they take seriously. As Jim Geraghty details, Democrats have “demonstrated a remarkable acceptance for one another’s hypocrisy.”

This is because those with the moral development to believe in principles deeper than “power is good” are unlikely to join a party whose platform boils down to coercion, theft, and degeneracy.

    It is unfair, illogical and borderline racist to identify these politicians as ‘Democrats’. In California, because of the relentless work Democrats do t̶o̶ for the people, Republicans aren’t a viable part of our great state and therefore c̶r̶i̶m̶e̶s̶ ̶a̶g̶a̶i̶n̶s̶t̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶p̶e̶o̶p̶l̶e̶ missteps like these while working for the people are to be expected and even applauded.

    Meanwhile, here in Charlotte, NC, our newly elected democrat mayor just got caught with his hand in cookie jar too. I guess he is now qualified to work in Washington.

    Now if they could just do the same thing to Eric Holder. I mean, this guy only accepted money and TALKED about running guns while Chief Racist Holder actually illegally transferred thousands of weapons to Mexican drug cartels which have been used in dozens of murders to date.

    Of the roughly 2200 weapons illegally sent across the Mexican border, each weapon carries a penalty of 10 years in federal prison or 22,000 years. Eric better get started now, he may not live long enough to serve all that time even with time off for good behavior. At the current federal rate of 3:1 he would only have to serve 7,333 years. Piece of cake.

    …and now you know why it’s SO important that you turn in your guns: an armed populace is much harder for a tyrannical government to control.

    “Oh, we’re concerned about the CHILDREN (who aren’t aborted). Sandyhook! Newtown! See? We care! GIVE US YOUR GUNS!”

    From my cold, dead hands, mo-fo.

    Now, let’s get about 10,000 people and head to Massachusetts and reunite Justina Pelletier with her family.

    Republicans better be careful here! Does anyone think that the FBI is going to only arrest Democrats? Nope! As the 2014 elections get closer the FBI just might be planning to make whole scale republican arrests to tip the election back in favor for the Democrats!
