Corrupt, Indicted Senator Gets 10% of Cal. Sec. State Vote

Democracy is positively the worst form of government except for all the others that have ever been tried, goes the old Churchill quip.  Further evidence comes from yesterday's primary election in California.  Suspended Senator Leland Yee, indicted for corrupt activities with a notorious gang, got almost 10% of the vote for Secretary of State, the office that is supposed to protect the integrity of our elections.  What are those people thinking?

Fortunately, that third-place finish is insufficient for him to proceed to the general election in November.
