It’s been years since we talked about former Senator Leland Yee, mostly because I was tired of talking about him. For those who don’t remember, Senator Leland Yee was a strong advocate for banning violent video games in California and beyond, and basically discrediting the video game industry and its players.

In a twist of irony, which can only be found in things like, well, video games, 66-year old Lee has admitted to extortion, bribes, and once offering to smuggle weapons from the Philippians to an undercover FBI agent. 

As part of a plea agreement, Yee pleaded guilty to racketeering. With this Yee could face up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000.

LEE was arrested in March, 2014, during an FBI raid.

According to police documents Yee and accomplice Keith Jackson tried to raise campaign funds for both Yee’s Secretary of State campaign and his run for Mayor by seeking donations from undercover FBI agents.
