LELAND WHO? California Senate erases websites of 3 lawmakers, including Leland Yee. “The Senate removed pictures, video clips and legislative archives over the weekend involving Democratic Sens. Rod Wright of Los Angeles, Ron Calderon of Montebello and Leland Yee of San Francisco. . . . The three continue to receive their $95,291 annual salaries but are not collecting a daily expense allowance. Lawmakers have been trying to distance themselves from the three suspended senators, and several have proposed legislation aiming to restore public trust in government by untangling the web of money and politics.” Yeah, how about term limits and reduced government powers? That would do more to reduce corruption — which is why it isn’t being suggested.

UPDATE: In the comments, I am corrected on term limits and California. But has Leland Yee really only served two terms?
