California State Senator Leland Yee, a long-time champion of gun control, has been busted by the FBI for allegedly seeking "campaign donations in exchange for introducing an undercover FBI agent to an arms trafficker" as reported by The Associated Press: "investigators said Yee discussed helping the agent get weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired missiles, and explained the entire process of acquiring them from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines to bringing them to the U.S."
Yee is the third Democratic state senator from the Golden State busted this year on criminal charges.
Meanwhile, in New York, G-men "raided the Albany and city offices of Queens Democratic Assemblyman Bill Scarborough" as reported by the Observer: "a spokeswoman for the bureau's city office said the search was conducted as part of 'an ongoing FBI investigation,' but declined to discuss whether any items were removed, what specifically agents were looking for, or the nature of the investigation."
United States Attorney Preet Bharara testified last year at public hearings before the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption in the Empire State, and said dirty dealings among the political class and their favored interests "appear rampant" with a "show-me-the-money culture" as reported by The Associated Press.
Last week Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox resigned after federal investigators from multiple agencies including the FBI and IRS raided his office and home as reported by The Associated Press: "Fox has represented Providence for more than two decades in the state's part-time General Assembly, and he became the nation's first openly gay House speaker in 2010."
Maybe the FBI simply should put the Democrat Party into federal receivership as a racketeering enterprise, and stop picking off their stinkin' politicians one by one.
