” Federal agents sought evidence of child pornography last week when they seized computers from the Elgin district office of former state Rep. Keith Farnham, who resigned Wednesday, according to a search warrant released Friday.

  In addition, a federal agent on Thursday took a laptop computer that Farnham used in the Illinois House chamber, and last week agents removed a computer from a legislative office building next to the Capitol, according to the documents and an interview with a state technology official.

  Farnham handed in his resignation on Wednesday, saying he was “battling serious health issues for a number of years.” He had won the Democratic primary on Tuesday, running unopposed.

  Democratic leaders from the area will choose Farnham’s replacement.

  The federal investigation came to light last week when authorities acknowledged search warrants were executed at Farnham’s Elgin district office and home. Several computers and equipment were seized at Farnham’s district office, as well as a computer from his office near the Capitol, according to federal records obtained by the Tribune using the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.”:

 

 

     The Dems are well represented in the FBI caseload these days … first we had the FBI and IRS raiding Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox’s office as part of an ongoing corruption investigation , next up comes California Rep and anti-gun hypocrite Leland Yee on suspicion of gun trafficking charges and now we get a raid on that “tireless advocate of children’s rights” Keith Farnham being investigated for child pornography .

   What a week for the champions of the little guy , and who could forget Dingy Harry Reid’s adventures in nepotism and illegal campaign spending ? 

 

   PS: We nearly forgot about Yee’s partner in crime , Dem State Senator Ron Calderon … They’ve got enough for a basketball team , how long before they can field a baseball team ?

 

   PPS:  Here’s another player under investigation … Calumet Township Trustee Mary Elgin‘s office has been raided by the FBI and IRS .

Sen. Yee Charged With Trafficking Firearms In Sweeping FBI Probe

 

 

 

 

 

 

” State Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) was charged Wednesday with conspiring to commit wire fraud and traffic firearms, part of a sweeping public corruption case outlined by federal prosecutors.

  The charges sent shock waves through the San Francisco and Sacramento political establishments, as FBI agents searched Yee’s Capitol office. Last year the FBI raided the offices of Sen. Ron Calderon (D-Montebello), who was targeted in a bribery sting.

  In all, 26 people, including former school board president Keith Jackson, were indicted on charges related to an extensive crime ring headed by well-known Chinatown figure Raymond Chow, who was also arrested and charged Wednesday.

  The indictment alleges Yee and Jackson defrauded “citizens of honest services” and were involved in a scheme to traffic firearms in exchange for thousands in campaign donations to the senator.

  Federal prosecutors also allege Yee agreed to perform official acts in exchange for the money, including one instance in which he introduced a businessman to state legislators who had significant influence over pending medical marijuana legislation. In exchange, the businessman — who was actually an undercover FBI agent — agreed to donate thousands to Yee’s campaign fund, according to the indictment.”

Democrat Admits Background Checks Won’t Work — Wants to Pass It Anyway

 

 

” Though she still supports stricter gun control measures, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), in a rare moment of honesty from the anti-gun crowd, admitted to the The New York Times that the Manchin-Toomey amendment, which would expand background checks to gun shows and online gun sales, wouldn’t stop criminals from obtaining a firearm for nefarious purposes.

[A] separate gun measure, an anti-trafficking bill, is the subject of talks between Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand, Democrat of New York, and two Republican senators who voted no on the background check bill. The Republicans, Senators Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, are discussing ways they might support the bill, which would criminalize the shipping or transfer of guns to someone who is barred from possessing a firearm.”
