California demands Yee quit senate after charges laid
(03-27 12:00)

Democratic Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, who was flanked by 14 other Democratic senators at a news conference in his Capitol office Wednesday, called on Yee to resign from the senate or face suspension.
“Don't burden your colleagues and this great institution with your troubles. Leave,'' he told reporters. “Absent that, we are prepared to go to the floor immediately and suspend him, and we will do so if necessary.''
Yee's senate spokesman, Dan Lieberman, declined to comment and said he did not know if Yee had an attorney. Yee's chief of staff, Jordan Curley, did not respond to a message left on her cellphone.—AP
