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.

    Why are we surprised? Absolute power corrupts absolutely. I'm sure that Darrell Steinberg will be at the center of all of this mess. The problem is that the California Democrat party has the "end justifies the means" attitude. As long as you walk the left side of the ideological road, we accept almost any type of immoral or unethical behavior.

    "As long as you walk the left side of the ideological road, we accept almost any type of immoral or unethical behavior." ........... There is no left or right tilt to an absence of morals or ethics. Some men, no matter how much is placed before them, steer a proper course. Others, no matter the price, will never consider the consequences or their legal obligations. You might consider the recent cases of Randy "Duke" Cunningham, Rick Renzi, Trey Radel, Judge Sam Kent, Bob Ney, Ted Haggard, Jack Abramoff and Larry Craig. All of those infamously ignominious men were right-wingers. ........... It is true that the self-righteous right likes to portray itself as moral and clean. But as the case of David Vitter showed so well, the portrait does not always reflect reality.

    "There is no left or right tilt to an absence of morals or ethics." Agree when you apply this to the individual, but not the tribe. The tribe of the ideological left is much more forgiving of ethical and moral transgressions of its members than is the tribe of the ideological right. The fact that some on the right exhibit extreme intolerance is a secondary point of discussion. The codes of the Republican Party require representatives to step down even if suspected of significant ethics violations. Democrats allow their members to stay in power and often work to cover-up the evidence of the transgressions. At the national level, Republicans force out members with real ethics issues. Democrats hold out until the media gets hot enough, or else the law prevails.

    Hey Jeff, that's a cute way of viewing the GOP's standards for conduct. Has anybody told Ollie North, Mark Sanford, Newt Gingrich, John McCain (seemed to do ok after the Savings and Loan Crisis of the late 1970's)? Maybe you should let them know.

    Whoops, typo, should be 1980's. Gotta love touchscreens!

    If you Google, "The S&L Crisis: A Chrono-Bibliography," you will find a timeline of events which led to that fiscal chaos. It is published by the FDIC, the institution which took over the deposit insurance role for thrifts after the FSLIC failed. I should add that when you corrected yourself with 1980s, I was thinking 'that should be early 1990s.' But I was wrong. It really was a 1980s situation. What caused confusion for me is that the recession of 1991-92 was in large part a byproduct of the S&L collapse. But that does not change the fact that the crisis, as you said, took place in the prior decade.
