Details from FBI wiretaps, made public in court filings by lawyers for accused Chinatown mobster Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow — one of over two dozen defendants in the corruption scandal that's seen former state Sen. Leland Yee and his erstwhile political consultant Keith Jackson plead guilty to racketeering — have expanded the cast of characters in the drama significantly.

Mayor Ed Lee allegedly knew about an illegal money laundering scheme, according to two women who were trying to milk a $10,000 donation from an undercover FBI agent, using a playbook they say was crafted by former mayor Willie L. Brown.

No further charges have been filed, but who are these people, anyhow — and how strong is the link between them? SF Weekly isn't sure, either, but we made this colorful chart for you just the same. Strap in and (try to) follow along.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
