"You need to resign,'' Bell Gardens Mayor Daniel Crespo said. "We've worked very hard to fix the corruption that exists in these cities, and (that) you are continuing to remain in office is a shame to all the cities you represent. Resign, Calderon.''
Downey Mayor Mario Guerra added, ``Senator Calderon has violated our public trust and does not deserve to represent the people of this fine district.''
Calderon, D-Montebello, has not been charged with a crime, and he has denied any wrongdoing.
Al Jazeera America recently reported the contents of what it called a sealed FBI affidavit, outlining allegations that Calderon had accepted thousands of dollars in bribes to influence legislation. The affidavit described a relationship between Calderon and an undercover agent posing as a film studio executive, and alleged that Calderon accepted bribes from the agent in return for legislative action on film tax credits, according to Al Jazeera America.
Calderon's offices were raided by the FBI earlier this year.
