California State Senator Leland Yee was recently indicted and arrested on charges of public corruption in a case that involves suspected Chinatown gang leader Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow. Watch as Jon Stewart becomes very afraid of shrimp cocktails and attempts to wrap his mind around an advocate for gun control getting busted for gun trafficking (talk of Yee and Shrimp Boy starts around the 3:16 mark).
