A federal grand jury filed a new charge Friday against St. Senator Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, and former Chinatown gangster Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow.

Yee now faces a count of racketeering in addition to other corruption charges. He is accused of accepting bribes in return for work to help a phony business set up by the FBI.

Chow is accused of running drug sales, laundering money, selling guns, and trying to buy stolen property.

Twenty-seven other people also face charges in the corruption case.
