The California Latino Legislative Caucus issued a statement Wednesday, noting that their offices were not searched during Tuesday’s FBI raid.
“Yesterday, the Sergeant at Arms informed us that the FBI had served warrants in the Capitol. However, despite media reports to the contrary, those warrants DID NOT include searches of the offices of the Latino Legislative Caucus (Room 511),” the organization wrote.
Their office was named by the sergeant at arms last night as one of two places searched during an “on-going” investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Calderon’s office at the Capitol was the other place searched.
Calderon is a member of the caucus. He represents the 30th Senate District out of Los Angeles County.
Sources with knowledge of the probe told the LA Times that the raid is a part of a wider public corruption investigation in Los Angeles County.
