    Is anybody else sick of all of the corruption in Politics!

    Embarrassed that a California State Senator was arrested for GUN RUNNING..
    I understand he is innocent until proven guilty.....But when somebody is arrested in a FBI sting....my guess is that where there is smoke there is fire..

    What's worse... Senator Yee (Democrat-SF area) was the KING of gun control legislation! He was all about anti-gun ownership bills, all while he (allegedly) was brokering gun deals with Asian gangs in SF. Some of the guns involved are shoulder fired rocket type weapons. Disgusting!

    I hope Senator Yee goes away for a long long time. It's pretty much a fact that many do enter political office for their own personal gains,...but I think that there should be extra charges against those who are found to have used the office for such outrageously selfish motivations.

    I remember a quote I heard in a Poli Sci class years ago... and I can't remember who spoke it, but they were words similar to "I don't hold this public office for my personal gain, but rather so that a lesser man can't". Yeah, those days are long gone!
