Apparently California Democrats view their escalating corruption problems as just some danged PR problem they can spin or ignore. Good luck with that. Three Democratic state senators are in serious legal problems. Yet the Senate merely voted to suspend them with pay. Yeah, that’s really sending a message to the California populace that the Senate genuinely cares about cleaning up the cesspool they live in.
One state senator was charged with conspiring to traffic in arms from the Philippines, and taking bribes from undercover F.B.I. agents including one who posed as a marijuana dealer. Another was accused of taking bribes from federal agents impersonating Hollywood film executives. And a third was convicted of perjury and voter fraud after lying about where he lived when he ran for office.
