FBI spokesman Peter Lee declined to discuss the charges against Yee, citing an ongoing investigation.

Lee said a second man, Raymond Chow, was also arrested. Chow was reportedly the head of Ghee Kung Tong, one of several fraternal organizations in San Francisco's Chinatown. Chow had returned to Chinatown after serving time in prison on gun charges.

The group's offices were among those raided Wednesday.

Yee represents western San Francisco and much of San Mateo County.

Well I have a copy of the complaint filed and it reads like a Tom Clancy novel.

Chow and Jackson will roll and more dominos are going to fall. But this dirt bag Holly crap Yee was in deeper then you could ever imagine all the while lobbying for stricter gun control. Here he is try to negotiate a meeting between and arm dealer and a gang king pin.

The same dude who hated guns and gun owners turns out to be a possible smuggler. If hes guilty hang him high in the streets.
