Federal agents on Tuesday raided the Springfield offices of state Sen. Martin Sandoval, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

FBI Special Agent John Althen confirmed Tuesday that federal agents were in the state Capitol conducting "authorized law enforcement activity." Althen declined to comment further.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

In a related move, agents were also at other locations Tuesday, a source said.

Sandoval was elected in 2013 and also chairs the Senate's Transportation Committee. He is the latest Illinois politician to gain the attention of federal authorities. Sandoval shares a district with Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan, whose inner circle has also caught the eyes of the feds.
