He is best known for his efforts to strengthen open records, government transparency and whistleblower protection laws, including legislation to close a loophole in state public records laws after the CSU Stanislaus Foundation refused to release its $75,000 speaking contract with former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in 2010.........................Ironic?

“Once things start to move, it’s going to attract attention. We just got to be extra-extra careful,” he said, according to court documents.

"Yee discussed helping the agent get weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder fired automatic weapons and missiles, and took him through the entire process of acquiring them from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines to bringing them to the United States, according to the affidavit by FBI Special Agent Emmanuel V. Pascua."

Gadzooks!

Senator Yee was behind legislation to ban California's “bullet button” on semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines.

Glad to see him fry.

There have to be plenty of photos of Leland Lee and Diane Fineswine together. They are two peas in the same corrupt California Democrat pod. Filthy hypocrites they both are.
