State Senator Leland Yee, who recently made news on this blog for his flip-flop-and-then-flip again on SCA5, was reportedly arrested this morning in an FBI raid; the investigation also included other state and federal agencies.
Yee, who represents San Francisco and part of San Mateo County, and who is currently running for California Secretary of State, was arrested along with notorious former San Francico-area gangster Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, after FBI and IRS investigators searched both Yee’s Sacramento-based office, as well as his San Francisco home. Both are scheduled to appear in court this afternoon.
