For John, BLUF: He didn't see it coming? Nothing to see here; just move along.
California Secretary of State Candidate Leland Yee is a poster boy for Campaign Finance Reform. If he didn't have all those campaign debts he would not have had to be running guns.♠ How else do you explain him being willing to arrange a sale of automatic weapons to Philippine terrorists?♥ For $2,000,000.
But, he is a Democrat and probably not getting help from the Koch Brothers. On the other hand, where were the Unions and George Soros?
Hat tip to the Instapundit.

♠ Which we know had to pain him terribly, given that he was such an Anti-2nd Amendment nut case.
♥ On the other, yesterday's news had the Philippine government signing a peace accord with the country's largest Muslim rebel group, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). Unfortunately, Abu Sayyaf, a Muslim insurgent (terrorist) group, with international links, is still out there, and the US is still helping the Philippine army fight to suppress that group.
