State Senator Leland Yee bailed out Wednesday night, and will be at his home this weekend waiting for another court appearance Monday.
The senator is accused by the FBI of trying to connect an undercover FBI agent with an arms dealer with ties to Russia that Yee claimed to know. The deal was being done with the blessing of Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow.
Chow is reportedly a “reformed” gangster after time in jail. But the FBI says he still leads the Chinese underground in San Francisco.
Outside court Wednesday, Yee’s defender would not comment on whether the senator would return to the legislature or continue his Secretary of State campaign.
