Willie Brown was formerly godfather of California Democratic politics and still has considerable influence. His inadvertently comical comments about how Leland Yee really didn’t do much of anything wrong shows how compromised Democratic politics in California has become.
Give the guy a break. When all is said and done, his alleged crimes come down to taking campaign contributions in return for issuing proclamations, using campaign funds to set up a meeting and taking campaign funds for writing a letter.
No, actually Willie, these offenses are called “crimes.” Most would call them corruption and certainly not a “ruckus”.
