Yesterday, the FBI raided the office of California State Senator Ron Calderon (D-Montebello) in the Capitol. In addition to searching Senator Calderon’s office, the FBI also entered the office of the Latino Legislative Caucus.

According to reports, the agents would not comment on why they were searching the Senator’s office citing a sealed court order.

The Calderon family has been involved in the state legislature since 1983. Senator Ron Calderon’s nephew, Ian, currently serves in the state assembly.

Calderon’s attorney, Mark Geragos, told the press, “This is a leak from the U.S. Department of Justice. They should be ashamed of themselves. If I could shed more light on this, I would.”

Senator Ron Calderon has come under scrutiny for ethics violations before for violating campaign finance rules. Last year, the Fair Political Practices Commission sent Calderon a warning letter for failing to file campaign finance reports.

UPDATED 12:39 pm 6/5/13:  According to State Senator Ricardo Lara, the second room that was searched by the FBI yesterday was not an office for the Latino Legislative Caucus, instead it was an additional room for Senator Calderon. Lara told the LA Times, “They attribute the mistake to an old roster. In any event, the Latino Caucus stands ready to assist the Justice Department and do whatever we can to bring this to a speedy resolution.”
