Well that Figures: California Anti-Game-Violence Legislator Arrested for Corruption

California State Senator Leland Yee (D), he’s one of the characters above not sure which, has been one of the major players in the push to limit the access minors have to violent video games. As much as I think such legislation needs to exist, not at all, it’s good to see a wrench thrown into the works of legislature run wild.

Yee, who is running for California Secretary of State, saw his office raided by FBI agents this morning in service of multiple arrest and search warrants, according to Sacramento’s KCRA. The raid follows a grand jury indictment of Yee, as reported by San Francisco’s ABC7. Sacramento’s Fox 40 reports that concurrent, related raids are being conducted on Chinatown locations with possible drug connections.

[UPDATE: Charging documents and a press release published by the Department of Justice charge Yee with firearms trafficking and six counts of fraud.

It’s nice how an anti-violence guy is being charged with firearms trafficking, it’s just so fitting. We all know that the kinds of video games kids play should be determined by their parents so governments making legislation to choose for them feels to me like overstepping their bounds. But if the California government is known for anything, it’s overstepping their bounds.
