Skip to comments.We Couldn’t Even Make This Up: Dem Senator Was Just Arrested For Gun Running
Posted on 03/28/2014 9:01:08 AM PDT by lbryce
Many leftist politicians who want to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights say their position is based on concern for the safety of citizens. Somehow, they contend, forcing law-abiding gun-owners to give up their weapons will result in street gangs following suit.
According to a recently unsealed affidavit, however, one state senator in California allegedly wanted to curtail gun rights for everyone except violent gangsters.
State Sen. Leland Yee, the court documents state, was the subject of an FBI raid that led to his arrest Wednesday along with 25 other individuals. Among those arrested was Raymond Shrimp Boy Chow, a well-known Chinese gang leader.
Though Chow claimed he left his criminal behavior in the past after his 2003 release from prison, evidence indicates he was merely putting a legitimate face on his new illegal behavior. He now faces charges of money laundering and a number of conspiracy charges.
The purportedly reformed crime boss has been praised in recent years by a number of California politicos for his public appearances working with troubled kids. All the while, however, reports indicate he was still deeply involved in his prior activities.

Fortunately, I will always give credit where credit is due, the report I heard yesterday was that the Maj Ldr is going to throw him out of the Senate if he doesn’t resign.
Is nobody sacred? Next thing you know the Bamster might get pinched as an accessory to Eric (the Gunrunner) Holder.
“He was actually a major distributor for the administration’s Fast and Furious program about to make a drop off to drug dealers in Tijuana.”
Was that in the indictment or is it documented elsewhere?
I think you are onto the truth of it. This guy is one of Holder’s boys, and he was hoping his assault rifles would be used to kill lots of children, so he could make book on the virtues of disarming Americans.
Besides, Leland was going to get rich, like all Democrat politicians are entitled to do. Serving their master, and getting rich doing it, is the Democrat dream.
Huh? She's shocked? More like sap-happy Di/Fi's doing a quick CYA before all the dirt comes out.
INCONVENIENT FACTOID: Di's hubby made millions doing deals in China.
Did M/M Di/Fi get any help from Yee? From Shrimp Boy Chow? Campaign donations, maybe?
This is Shrimp Boy Chow who was arrested in connection w/ Yee's terrorist arms trafficing plot.
THE DI SUCKUP Di/Fi honored Chow as a "community role model" at the same time Chow was running a criminal enterprise.
SNIP --- The 137-page FBI complaint against state Sen Leland Yee and his criminal conspirators, has many twists reminiscent of the movie "American Hustle".......
EDITED--Leland Yee, a progressive Democrat (born in China), built his political fortune partly through Chinatown connections and had never lost a race until his failed bid for San Francisco mayor in 2011. A few years before Yee's political journey, gangster Shrimp Boy Chow's own political star began rising. Around 2008, he began meeting with at-risk youth to talk with kids about how to stay on the straight and narrow, said Rudy Corpuz Jr, executive director of the youth-led violence prevention organization United Playaz. "He wasn't just the average guy on the street corner when he had that life, he was somebody you wouldn't mess with. And he's little so people were like, 'Damn, that little guy had that much power?" said Corpuz Jr., who said Chow's "redemption" story helped change hundreds of young lives for the good.
Soon, politicians weighed in to suckup ethnic campaign contributions and votes---the political recognition and awards to criminal; Chow started coming. Shrimp Boy was lauded by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California for his work as a former offender who had become a community role model, and praised by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee for his "willingness to give back to the community." He posted pictures of himself on Facebook with Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom. And while Finestein was singing his praises, Chow was running a criminal operation, according to court documents. (NOTE At the same time Di was in thick w/ the tong gang, DI's hubby was making millions doing deals in China).
Then several years ago, undercover FBI agents assigned to Chow infiltrated his criminal organization, and ultimately snared Sen Leland Yee and Lee's campaign consultant Keith Jackson. All three were arrested Wednesday during a series of raids in Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area that also netted additional members of the Chinese tong gang.
THE INEVITABLE ETHNIC SOLIDARITY KICKS IN--" This (terrorist) trafficing kind of flies in the face of what he has told me," said Lee's fellow countryman, Millbrae Mayor Wayne Lee, a Yee protege. "He's always been a champion for the downtrodden. I am hoping that he will be vindicated."
Yee is free on $500,000 bail; Chow was denied bail because he was deemed a flight risk and a danger to the public. Jackson was denied bail, too. "The Yee/Chow a very active criminal enterprise, and we won't see this one very busy for the near future," agent Chinn said.

Perfectly logical behavior for a gun runner. Gun runners should want guns illegal so the prices are driven up.
Suggests that democrats are following in the footsteps of the patriarch of the kennedy clan who thought liquor was better off being illegal
Does he not qualify as a traitor? Is it not treasonous?
Will he suffer the correct punishment?
NOT A F***IG CHANCE!
Then the Leland Yee terrorist arms trafficking story broke---connecting Finestein w/ Democrat Sen Yee and his criminal associates.
EVER WONDER HOW DUMB ISSA WAS? Issa Rips CIA Over Feinstein Spying Allegations: 'Treason'
breitbart | 3/12/14 | Kerry Picket / FR Posted by Nachum
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said he is incensed about allegations the CIA spied on the Senate Intelligence Committee, calling it treason.
I think Senator Feinstein is as outraged as anyone and I share her outrage. I think the violation of the Constitutional separation of powers should be an offense of the highest levelvirtually treason, Issa told Breitbart News on Tuesday.
Spying on the executive branchspying on Congress or violating the separation of powers as to the Supreme Court or as to Congress is effectively treason. Treasonits written up in the Constitution, Issa said of Feinsteins revelations.
....adding, I dont know who gave the orders, but to spy on other branches is in fact a constitutional violation at the level of high crimes and misdemeanors and certainly should cause the removal of anyone involved. more at breitbart.com ...
I wonder if Harry Reid will just look the other way on this too?
Lee,not to worry the other gun runner Eric Holder will free you..He is on his way to California as I write this....sit tight and wait o your comrade.
No, it was sarcasm without the tags. When people ask me why I don’t insert the sarcasm tag, I say, sarcasm was being written thousands of years before the tag was ever invented. But, I’ve decided to reconsider and will be including the tags from now on, most of the time, anyway.
“Dig a little deeper and maybe well see whos been supplying the gangs all this time? I always wondered why the gun buyback programs were called buyback, after all.”
I posted the same comment/question yesterday.
Most of the cities, who sponsor the gun buy back programs have left wing mayors, city council members and police chiefs. So are those guns turned in to buy back PR stunts, really melted down or are they packed up and transported to another liberal city to be re sold to the gangs in the different city?
Issa was probably doing the old DC two step. First of all he probably knew what the CIA was doing re investigating Di Fi and probably her husband.
Then, when DiFi blows up, Issa does what you noted.
Issa probably slept very well that night after his act of shame.
Yeah and then the Majority Leader can expel himself.
They’re all in it up their foreign ears. Steinberg is just an enabler who doesn’t want to get caught.
