Hypocrisy overload: Tweets from gun control advocate Leland Yee, charged with arms trafficking

California Democrat state Sen. Leland Yee might be a worthy candidate for “hypocrite of the year,” if not decade.

First, the story from CBS News:

A California state senator who advocated gun control legislation asked for campaign donations in exchange for introducing an undercover FBI agent to an arms trafficker and told him how to get shoulder-fired automatic weapons and missiles from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines, according to court documents unsealed Wednesday.

The allegations against state Sen. Leland Yee were outlined in an FBI affidavit in support of a criminal complaint. The affidavit accuses Yee of conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms. He was arrested Wednesday and appeared later in federal court, where bail was set at $500,000.

Before he was arrested on those charges, Yee was all on board with Piers Morgan’s anti-gun push after Sandy Hook, as recounted by those who found and re-tweeted the words of a seriously hypocritical gun-grabber:

Just … wow!

Here are past tweets from Yee, who, as a redundant reminder, has been arrested and charged with conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms:

Unbelievable.

Possible moral of the story?

Hypocrisy can be dangerous.
