Anti-Video Game Legislator Leland Yee Arrested for Playing Real-Life Like GTA

For all intents and purposes, Leland Yee has been a thorn in the side of gamers. He's argued that video games should be regulated as heavily as cigarettes and alcohol. His law was struck down in the Supreme Court ruling protecting video games as a form of free speech, but now he's under arrest for a variety of charges that sound like missions from Grand Theft Auto.
Yee is now up against a slew of corruption charges in a sting operation conducted by the FBI. Allegations include firearms trafficking, money laundering, murder-for-hire, and distribution of illegal drugs.
Yee and Raymon Chow, a Chee Kung Tong Free Mason leader in San Francisco, are among 26 defendants charged in the federal case on Wednesday. Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow has a long history of criminal activity.
Yee could face over 100 years in prison, but since this political slime ball has plenty of connections I don't know how many days he'll actually spend in the clink. That's just a word us guys use for jail, prison, Azkaban.
Yee's bail is set at $500,000 which my GTA Online character would be happy to loan him if GTA Online were real and not a game. It's too bad Yee couldn't figure out the difference between the two in researching his anti-violent game law.
