ABC Local ^ | 4/17/14 | Vic Lee

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A story that sounds like a movie script is slowly grinding its way to trial. All of the 29 defendants in the massive corruption case involving suspended State Senator Leland Yee and reputed gangster Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow appeared in federal court Thursday.

With so many defendants, lawyers, and documents, the judge is trying to set up a system to manage what could be an unwieldy trial. What makes it even harder is that not everyone's on the same page.

The frustration is beginning to show. There are 29 defendants, even more lawyers, a 137 page indictment, and voluminous amounts of evidence from a five year investigation, which include secretly recorded videotapes and wiretaps.

Thanks Libloather.
29 defendants, even more lawyers, a 137 page indictment, and voluminous amounts of evidence from a five year investigation, which include secretly recorded videotapes and wiretaps.
Remarkably enough, Yee, the Demwit, a phony-baloney gun-grabber wannabee, wasn't busted until right after he and three other Cali legislators of Asian ancestry stood up in opposition to yet another bill that tries to violate the Cali constitution as amended by reintroducing racial quotas in college admissions.

LOL - that's code for 'democrat'. If these criminals had been Republican it would have been in the headline AND the first paragraph...

“When will National news pick this up?”

There is nothing to pick up. A bunch of radical right-wingers were caught selling illegal machine guns at a gun show.

It happens so often that it isn’t even news anymore.

Looks like Vic Lee is whoring for Democrats by leaving out important pieces of information - as we both suspected... The above link tells the truth...democrats..

The trial will be declared a mistrial and there won’t be another trial. They will all walk and be reinstated in their jobs - where they will continue their criminal activity.
