Party scandals force California Dems to cancel Torrey Pines golf fundraiser

April 02, 2014

California State Senate Leader Darrell Steinberg cancelled a swanky Democratic golf tournament/fundraiser to be held at Torrey Pines outside San Digeo on Tuesday after criminal proceedings were recently brought against a handful of fellow party members.

Democratic State Senator Ronald Calderon is facing federal charges after allegedly accepting $100,000 in bribes, while Leland Yee faces similar charges for his alleged role in accepting bribes and an international gun-running operation. A third Senator, Rod Wright, was convicted of eight counts of voter fraud in January and now faces up to eight years in prison. CBS Sacramento has a good round up of the timeline of the events.
