GOP leader thinks he met agent in sting operation

SACRAMENTO (AP) - Senate Minority Leader Bob Huff says he believes he unwittingly met with a FBI undercover agent during a meeting set up by Sen. Leland Yee and one of Yee's campaign aides, both of whom now face federal charges.

Huff, a Republican from Diamond Bar, told reporters Friday that Yee and the aide worked through his scheduler to set up what he believed was a routine meeting last August that also included Huff's legislative director.

Yee and "kind of a long-haired guy in casual clothing" showed up to discuss some Republicans' opposition to medical marijuana.

Huff says there was no effort to seek his support for any legislation, nor any other overtures by Yee or the other man. He says the date of the meeting matches details in the criminal complaint.
