The California Senate has erased the names and online archives of three suspended lawmakers entangled in criminal cases.
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.
All that remains on the websites is information about their Senate districts.
So the Democrats who control the California legislature have decided to go for the tried-and-true methods of one of their long-time idols, Joseph Stalin, and air-brush away any evidence of the offending miscreants.
Well, except for this:
The three continue to receive their $95,291 annual salaries but are not collecting a daily expense allowance.
And, of course, Senator Yee will be permitted to keep the funds he’s raised for his SecState run, and use them instead to wage a high-powered legal defense against the charges.
