SACRAMENTO -- FBI agents who raided the office of State Sen. Ron Calderon (D-Montebello) on Tuesday afternoon also raided the offices of the legislative Latino caucus, Capitol officials said.
Tony Beard, chief Sergeant at Arms for the state Senate issued a statement on Tuesday evening:
"This afternoon, agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation served search warrants in the State Capitol at the office of Senator Ron Calderon and in the Legislative Office Building at the Latino Legislative Caucus office," it said. "Those warrants are sealed by order of the Federal Court; therefore we have no further information."
"The Senate has and will continue to fully cooperate with the agents in this matter," the statement said.
Shortly before releasing the statement, Beard asked reporters to stop knocking on the door of Calderon's office, where FBI agents were inside conducting their search.
Calderon has not responded to request for comment.
Another member of the Latino caucus, Sen. Ricardo Lara (D- Bell Gardens) said he was unaware what the FBI agents were seeking. "I have no idea," he said. "No comment."
[Updated, 7:35 p.m., June 4: Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman, said that all information related to the nature of the search was sealed and that the agency could not discuss it. “The affidavit in support is under seal and we are prohibited from commenting,” she said. Sources with knowledge of the inquiry said the search of Calderon's office is part of a wider public corruption investigation in Los Angeles County.]

Sens. McCain and Obama are fiercely courting the Latino vote. Last month they spoke to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials; today it’s the League of United Latin American Citizens’ national convention; and this weekend they’re set to address the National Council of La Raza, one of the most radical socio-ethnocentric interest groups in the country.

AMNESTY: STATE by STATE… 49 more mexiforniasImmigrating America Into a Colony of Mexico
We’ve got an even more ominous enemy within our borders that promotes “Reconquista of Aztlan” or the reconquest of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas into the country of Mexico. With 9.2 million Mexicans now living in America, their goal of colonizing our country back into Mexico moves forward. A more sobering reality stems from the evidence that it’s Mexican-American citizens in the forefront of this disintegration of our country.
has Obama promised Mexico, La Raza and employers of illegals open and undefended borders and 49 more easy to loot mexifornias?
