Capitol Offices Raided (California)
KFI AM 640 Los Angeles ^ | 6/4/13 | David Perez

Posted on 06/04/2013 7:07:25 PM PDT by reformed_dem

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The FBI is searching the office of California state Sen. Ron Calderon but is not disclosing the reason for the investigation.

Laura Eimiller, the spokeswoman for the FBI office in Los Angeles, said the warrants were served about 3 p.m. Tuesday and that agents were still inside the Capitol in the evening.

She would not disclose the target of the search warrants, but Senate Chief Sergeant-at-Arms Tony Beard told The Associated Press it was Calderon.

From the LA Times:

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.

Note how they don't say what the party affiliation is.

They do, in not saying.

The whole Calderon politico-narcotrafficante family of extortionists and racketeers is going to be taken down in a huge RICO case. The grand jury indictment which is sealed includes money laundering, structuring, bribery, conspiracy, obstruction of justice, wire fraud, and 22 total counts naming three Calderons.

Isn’t he that switch hitter? Some days he’s all puffed up with LaRaza demands and then other days he wants to be a gay Scoutmaster in a troop full of retarded kids ~ seriously ~ his legislative history is highly suspect.

KCRA 3’s Mike Luery reports FBI agents also searched the office for the California Latino Legislative Caucus, of which 55-year-old Calderon is the vice chair.

Did you edit the first three paragraphs? Now they’re different. . .


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The FBI searched the offices of a California state senator and the Legislature’s Latino caucus on Tuesday but would not disclose the reason for the investigation.

Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI office in Los Angeles, said the warrants were served at about 3 p.m. and agents remained inside the state Capitol in the evening.

She would not disclose the target of the search warrants, but Senate Chief Sergeant-at-Arms Tony Beard told The Associated Press it was Sen. Ron Calderon, a Democrat from the Los Angeles County city of Montebello.

Just clicked the link and it looks like they have expanded the story quite a bit. What I posted originally was their whole story at the time.

Calderon is a Hispanic racist, Communist sympathizer, and pro-criminal illegal alien...He must have done something so damn obvious, even the corrupt government had to act before being accused of being a co-conspirator with Calderon.

Probably voter fraud..

If that's the case, you might as well serve search warrants on most of the Federal Government since they've aided and abetted these open border policies, lawless borders and done everything possible to provide gifts, prizes and incentives for millions entering illegally, not to mention supporting these legal immigrations, "free for all" polices.

Divide the united....Destroy these fools without firing a shot.
