Officials for the state Senate said Wednesday that a second office searched by FBI agents the day before was an overflow office for state Sen. Ron Calderon (D-Montebello), not the office of the Latino Legislative Caucus as previously announced.
Senate Sergeant at Arms Tony Beard Jr. had said Tuesday that the caucus offices in the Legislative Office Building were searched along with the main office of Calderon in the Capitol.
The search took place in an overflow room Calderon maintained in Room 592 at the Legislative Office Building, not Room 511, where the caucus operates, according to Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens), the caucus chairman.
“They attribute the mistake to an old roster,” Lara said. “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.”
