An investigation is under way to determine whether Democratic state Sen. Roderick Wright lives in the district he represents.The Los Angeles County district attorney's office searched two homes last week in connection with the investigation. One is in Wright's 25th District and the other house was in the neighboring 26th District, but their exact addresses are not being released.

Wright is not commenting on the investigation.

State legislators are required to live in the districts they serve. Those who live outside can be sued and removed from office.

He serves a wide region that includes the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Hawthorne, Gardena, parts of Long Beach, some areas of the city of Los Angeles, as well as unincorporated areas.
