A key FBI agent who helped nab a state senator and 19 others lavished his targets with tens of thousands of dollars, lawyers for one of the defendants argued last week.

The Associated Press reports that the agent was removed from the case over financial improprieties.

One of the defendant’s lawyers called the behavior “outrageous.”

The case involves state Sen. Leland Yee, who is accused of organized crime and political corruption in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

According to the defense, the undercover agent was involved in a case “related to the financing and financial record-keeping” by the agent in the Chinatown sting.

Further details weren’t available.
