Ca Senator Leeland Yee just got 5 years for bribery, how is GM's in the pocket Ind. Rep Kevin Mahan less culpable?

Lee apparently took campaign money from a gun runner etc. But what Rep Mahan is doing seems worse. He drafts a bill to block a GM competitor just because GM paid him off (sponsored him) and the idiotic sponsored media is all proud and righteous about this. This is crime, blatent, unrepentant out in the open. How does this have anything to do with the public interest?!

If this can be done why not pull GM’s charter in CA. And do the same for the natural gas companies? This idea that obsolete fossil fuel companies can simply buy politicians out in the open to block efforts to address climate change has to meet prosecution and finally a national security response.
