By From page A2 | March 26, 2014

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The FBI says a California state senator has been arrested during a series of raids in the San Francisco Bay Area.

FBI spokesman Peter Lee said State Sen. Leland Yee was arrested Wednesday morning, but declined to discuss the charges, citing an ongoing investigation.

Lee said a second man, Raymond Chow, was also arrested. Chow was reportedly the head of Ghee Kung Tong, one of several fraternal organizations in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Chow had returned to Chinatown after serving time in prison on gun charges. The group’s offices were among those raided Wednesday.

Yee represents western San Francisco and much of San Mateo County.
