State Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) was arrested and charged Wednesday for allegedly accepting contributions in exchange for introducing an undercover agent to an arms dealer.
According to an affidavit, Yee discussed with the undercover agent how to obtain weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines and bring them to the United States.
But other than that, he was pretty opposed to firearms.
