CA Senator Advocates Limbaugh Boycott

Legislator Got Threatening Faxes

According to, California State Senator Leland Yee – also a candidate for mayor of San Francisco – says he’s received threatening faxes since criticizing Rush Limbaugh for mocking the Chinese language on his radio show during Chinese President Hu Jintao’s visit to the U.S. Yee says the faxes contain explicit language and threats against African-Americans and Asians, including a drawing of a black man’s head in a noose and appear to come from a Limbaugh supporter.

Yee says he also received a threatening fax in April of last year after questioning how much Sarah Palin was paid for speaking at a public university. Yee told KTXL-TV, Sacramento, “It can happen, but sometimes you kinda scoff at these threats. But given the Gifford shooting I think all of us take these threats a little more seriously.”
