California Senate scrubs websites of three disgraced Democrats

By John Hrabe | Cal Watchdog

The California State Senate has scrubbed its website and deleted the online archives of three Democratic state senators that face criminal charges ranging from weapons trafficking to public corruption.

As of April 5 at 7:00 PM, the websites of Democratic Sens. Leland Yee of San Francisco, Ron Calderon of Montebello, and Rod Wright of Inglewood, all of whom have been placed on paid leave, no longer include any mention of the disgraced lawmakers. The website removal is a devastating blow to journalists and members of the public who will no longer be able to investigate past votes, bills and legislative connections of the disgraced lawmakers.
