A lawyer for Sen. Ron Calderon, whose office was searched by federal authorities on Tuesday, is denying that his client has done anything wrong.
“The only one so far who has done anything improper is the government,” said the attorney, Mark Geragos.
Geragos has made a name for himself as a criminal defense lawyer for high-profile clients like Chris Brown, Gary Condit and Scott Peterson.
On Tuesday, he said federal authorities are “out of control” and “should be ashamed of themselves.”
Geragos said he plans to go to court to ask that anything taken from the senator’s office be returned.
“The government has violated the law and we will take appropriate action to hold them accountable,” he added.
He declined to talk about any specific allegations against Calderon (D-Montebello).
