Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) on suspicion of accepting payments from an undercover FBI agent while promising him official action and introduction to an international arms dealer.

The Sunset Strip isn't exactly the place where religious values have flourished, but back in the 1970s, it was home to the nation's first Christian nightclub. The spot was called Right On, and it was described in an Aug 19, 1971, story in The Times . It had a neon sign and was “psychedelically decorated,” but beyond that it probably didn't have much in common with its Strip neighbors. The clientele were “clean-cut, finely pressed, hair in place, mother's dream, Orange County safe, and even bushy-tailed,” reporter Alan Cartnal wrote.
