An ongoing federal investigation of Massachusetts state Sen. Brian Joyce advanced Wednesday as the FBI and IRS conducted “court authorized activity” that included a raid at the Democrat’s law office, the Boston Herald reports. 

Joyce previously was under fire for using nearly $5,000 in campaign funds to pay for his son’s 2014 high school graduation party.

Gov. Charlie Baker also has called for a state Ethics Commission investigation after the Boston Globe reported that Joyce was receiving free dry cleaning for more than a decade.

Baker said he was “troubled by some of the issues that were raised previously with respect to the senator’s relationship with some of the folks in his district.”

Joyce’s attorney Howard Cooper said his client was cooperating with authorities.

“It is unfortunate that recent stories in the media appear to have sparked an investigation,” Cooper’s statement read. “Senator Joyce has been cooperating with each inquiry that has taken place to date resulting from those stories and believes that he has done absolutely nothing wrong.”
