A pair of FBI agent are let into the Capitol office of state Sen. Ron Calderon, D-Montebello, by Senate Chief Sgt.-at-Arms Tony Beard, center, after a search warrant was served Tuesday, June 4, 2013. The FBI did not disclose the reason for the search of Calderon's office, and the office of the Legislature's Latino caucus which was also served with a search warrant. Calderon was not present during the search.

Yesterday the FBI raided the Sacramento offices of state senator Ron Calderon. The agency remains mum on why they conducted this search, the first of its kind at a senator's office in 30 years.

Correction: Contrary to earlier reports, the Legislative Offices of the Latino Caucus were not searched Tuesday. The FBI searched two offices but, according to a statement released Wednesday, officials from the California State Senate said that one of them was misidentified as belonging to the caucus due to an outdated roster of room numbers. Both offices that were searched belong to Senator Calderon.
