BREAKING: California Anti-Gun Crusader Leland Yee Sentenced to 5 Years for Gun Running

Technically, the former California state senator and ardent civilian disarmament advocate was sentenced for pleading guilty to trading political favors for campaign contributions. But as the LA Times reports, “Yee admitted in a plea deal that he was part of a racketeering conspiracy that involved exchanging official acts for money, conspiring to traffic in weapons and money laundering.” So now the man who did everything he could to keep law-abiding Golden Staters disarmed will be spending his time in an impeccably tailored orange jumpsuit and Velcro sneakers with his former partner in crime, Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow wondering where it all went wrong. It’s a little early in the day for champagne, but this Flor de las Antilles is tasting awfully good right now.
