California Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) has been detailed on public corruption and bribery charges as part of a major FBI crackdown in the Bay Area, according to the San Jose Mercury News

Search and arrest warrants have been served throughout the Bay Area this morning. Besides Yee, a San Francisco Chinatown gangster Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow” has also been arrested. Chow had been arrested and had served time in prison before for racketeering. He allegedly has ties to a Hong Kong triad called Wo Hop To.

Yee is running to become the next Secretary of State and his indictment puts his candidacy in jeopardy.
