A state assemblyman from Queens says the FBI has raided his home, hotel and offices in an investigation of his daily expense claims.

Democrat William Scarborough says representatives from Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office and the FBI raided his hotel room at 5:45 a.m. Wednesday.  He says FBI agents left his office Wednesday with boxes marked evidence. He says they took his cell phone, calendars and "just about everything."

The Legislature has weathered a series of criminal and sexual harassment scandals in recent years.

FBI officials did not have any immediate comment.

Scarborough was elected to office in 1994.
