Senator Darrell Steinberg speaks to the media Thursday about removing Sen. Ronald Calderon from the California Film Commission. The FBI alleged State Sen. Ron Calderon accepted about $88,000 in bribes from an undercover FBI agent posing as a film studio owner and from a Southern California hospital executive during a wide-ranging probe into his conduct as a legislator, according to a 124-page affidavit published online Wednesday by cable news network Al Jazeera America.
