FROM THIS EPISODE

Last night, the Sacramento offices of a sitting legislator were raided by the FBI — the first time that's happened since the 1980's. The target is Democratic State Senator Ron Calderon of Montebello, part of a family that's had at least one member in the legislature for 30 years. It's reportedly about political corruption in Los Angeles, but Calderon's attorney says the FBI agents "should be ashamed of themselves." We hear more and look at the political implications in the San Gabriel Valley. Also, the Los Angeles Kings won a crucial game last night, a different team from last year's Stanley Cup winners.

After losing twice in Chicago, the LA Kings got their act together last night at home in Staples Center, defeating the Blackhawks three to one. It took a new lineup to get the job done. That's according to Dennis Bernstein, vice president of the hockey magazine The Four Period and host of The Fourth Period Live on Sirius XM.
