California State Senator Arrested for Public Corruption
State Senator Leland Yee has been arrested on public corruption charges as part of several arrests made by the FBI.
Yee represents District 8, which includes San Francisco and San Mateo County. The former San Francisco supervisor and 2011 mayoral candidate is currently running for secretary of state.
Yee was honored last week by the Northern California chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists for his efforts last year to maintain the requirements of the California Public Records Act.
