Leland Yee shows true colors

From page A11 | April 10, 2014 |

I wish to thank Sen. Leland Yee for showing his true colors to the world and mostly the Bay Area.

Where are his friends now? I don’t see U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein or Rep. Nancy Pelosi sticking up for his rights, or U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer or any of the rest of the San Francisco do-gooder’s running to his aid. It’s more like he has a deadly disease, and his friends are treating him like the plague.

When all is said and done, I wonder how many more of the San Francisco elite will fall? Bring on the Watergate hearings! It’s time for another Democratic mess to unfold before our eyes.

    Al, I missed the Fox and Friends show that explained how Watergate was about how the Democrats went off their rails. The way I understood it, from watching the hearings, was that Watergate concerned the crimes of a Republican president, Richard Nixon. And, I'm guessing from your letter, that you went "running to his aid."

    Mr. P, Al is the one who mentioned Watergate. Are you saying that Democrat criminals are worse than Republican criminals?

    Of course not. Crime and sucky ethics has never been the provenance of a particular party. You have to judge it case by case. That being said, California Democrats are on a Brandon Belt kind of hot streak!

  • Do you really have to ask?April 10, 2014 - 1:44 pm

    No it is not OK... You really do need help, don't you. Now you are on my Enemies list and I will join the club and finally write an actual letter to the editor complaining about your Demo-goguery. Do you know why your last column is not easily found in the archives and why all the comments are now missing? I think you are almost as uneducable as the rest of the commenters on here. I bet you are really stubborn.

    Yeah right Komrade Kirchebel, and you're garnering fewer true believers to your Rat Political Party too! Instead of discussing Senator Terrorist Yee, you want to talk about Nixon. Nice try, but you are indeed projecting blame and deflecting the issue. Next, you will say ''you're racist'' because of what goes on with your Rat Political Party of perverts and traitors.

    I love how when these Democrat scandals break the libs always want to go back over 40 years and bring up Watergate as some type of defense to their own bad conduct. Was Watergate bad? Yes it was. The libs always forget to mention how people paid for their crimes in Watergate. A President resigned in disgrace and others went to prison. The libs never mention all that when trying to defend crooked democrats in their corruption scandals.

    Al-Al Al,,, you do know this is California and the liberal democrats own this state, so when one (or in this case) three go bad the voters just vote in three more liberals so if you are a RINO stay and fight (good luck) but if you lean more to the right move, I for one am of the laughter almost done, last child in high school,
