Wilk Weekly Update - November 6, 2013

Case against Senator Ron Calderon

  • Calls begin for Sen. Ron Calderon to resign his seat due to the information released about investigation:
    • On June 12, 2012, Calderon met with undercover agents posing as film executives at a restaurant in Pico Rivera. The agents were looking to lower the minimum film budget to qualify for a tax credit from $1,000,000 to $500,000. Calderon agreed to lower it to $750,000 if the agents employed his daughter, Jessica, in their fake film company. By August of that year, Jessica was paid $27,000 and had not lifted a finger.
    • The undercover agent offered an extra $50,000 to Calderon if Calderon agreed to employ the agent's girlfriend, who was also an undercover agent. Calderon quickly agreed and mandated that $5,000 it should go to his son Zachary's tuition at Berklee College of Music in Boston. The rest went into Californians for Diversity, a slush fund disguised as a nonprofit run by Calderon and his brother Charles.
    • Calderon and the agent booked a seat at The Bank, an ultra-expensive club inside the Bellagio in Las Vegas. There, he racked up a bill of almost $4,000 and took pictures of himself with rappers Nelly and T.I., which he then sent to the agent. Calderon did not report this trip on his state ethics disclosure forms.
  • No charges against Calderon have been filed, and his attorney has publicly dismissed the affidavit.
