California Lawmaker Arrested in FBI Probe

The businessmen California State Sen. Ronald Calderon (D) "expected to meet were actually FBI agents with an unsettling message: He was under investigation for public corruption, and he could either cooperate with authorities or face the consequences," the Los Angeles Times reports.

"Calderon initially agreed to wear a wire in an effort to implicate other politicians, authorities said. That arrangement eventually fell apart, and on Friday prosecutors announced a sweeping indictment against Calderon charging him with bribery, fraud, money laundering and related offenses."
