While I was preparing dinner for Sebastian’s birthday celebration with family, more details broke about the accusations against anti-gun California Senator Leeland Yee. The charges that were initially only described as bribery and corruption now reveal his alleged ties to gun running operations. The hypocrisy is so extreme that even the mainstream media is taking notice and opening their stories with the fact that a gun control advocate has been arrested on charges related to facilitating illegal gun sales.
Twitchy is having some fun going back through Sen. Yee’s tweets on gun control sent as the man was allegedly working to help out organized crime networks get more guns into the country illegally.
Through Cam Edwards, we see that Sen. Yee’s website still touts himself as an honoree of The Brady Campaign that held a reception to honor him as a “Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll” member, according to a press release.
For his commitment to ending gun violence, Assembly Speaker pro Tem Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/Daly City) has been named to the Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll by the Brady Campaign. The Brady Campaign will honor Yee and other state legislators from throughout the country who earned an A+ for working against gun violence at a reception during the National Conference of State Legislators in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday, August 16, 2006.
I guess it is accurate to describe Sen. Yee as an honor roll worthy politician since he did do his homework. From the indictment against him, you have to give him extra credit for actually knowing the difference between fully automatic firearms and semi-automatic, so that he would (allegedly) make sure to get the right kind of firearms for criminals looking to buy illegally through him.
