FBI agents raided the office of state Sen. Ron Calderon (D-Montebello) and at least one other location in the state Capitol on Tuesday to gather evidence for an investigation, law enforcement officials said.
“FBI agents are executing a search warrant at the Capitol building,” said Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman.
She said all information related to the nature of the search was sealed and the agency could notdiscuss it. “The affidavit in support is under seal and we are prohibited from commenting,” she said.
Sources with knowledge of the probe said the search of Calderon’s office is part of a wider public corruption investigation in Los Angeles County.
Eimiller said the agency is “taking evidence respective to an ongoing investigation.”
