The FBI has no comment other than to confirm that two locations were searched.

The Los Angeles Times believes it might have a good idea what’s going on.

A company official who bid on work at the Central Basin Municipal Water District in Los Angeles County said Tuesday that he has been interviewed twice by FBI agents since March about the agency’s contracting practices. Central Basin has paid up to $140,000 a year on a consultant contract with Tom Calderon, the senator’s brother and a former state lawmaker himself.

In addition, Ron Calderon has authored legislation on behalf of Central Basin in the past.
