Assemblyman William Scarborough insisted he had not abused the Assembly’s system for travel per diems and that the raid from federal agents stemmed from a misunderstanding from a tabloid “hit job.”

“I believe I have acted in accordance of the law,” Scarborough said. “We’ll see. They didn’t give me very much. I can only go based on what I was told. I don’t think this is warranted.”

Scarborough’s office in Albany, as well as his home and motel room, were raided by FBI agents on Wednesday. He said law enforcement officials first contacted him this morning at 5:45 to raid his Howard Johnson motel room in Albany.

First elected in 1995, the Democrat represents the Jamaica section of Queens.

Agents were seen taking boxes with yellow “evidence” tape from his office.

Scarborough told reporters the investigation was over his use of per diems — travel voucher reimbursements for which he has received tens of thousands of dollars from over the last several years.

“I believe they represent a misunderstanding of the Assembly voucher system or misrepresentation of what I did,” he said.

He said the initial story from The New York Post was incorrect in its claims he had taken travel reimbursement funds without being in Albany.

“I don’t believe I’ve done anything wrong,” Scarborough said. “I believe this was based on what was an inaccurate report of about a year and half ago from a New York City tabloid.”

The lawmaker was not arrested, but indicated a possible indictment could come.

“What I was told was there might be indictments and I would not be one of them,” he said. “When I spoke with people here they seemed to have kind of tempered that statement.”

Scarborough said he was first issue subpoenas on the travel voucher some time ago, but “I did not think anything would come of it.”

“The reality is I don’t know of any corruption because if anything comes my way I try to get out of it,” he said.

The raid comes amid budget negotiations in Albany and as Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state legislative leaders are discussing potential ethics reform legislation.

Lawmakers have said this week they expect a deal that could include a tightening of anti-corruption and anti-bribery laws, but Republicans in the Senate remain opposed to publicly financed political campaigns.

Albany has been wracked by multiple corruption scandals over the last several years, with three high-profile cases alone in 2013 resulting in the arrests of Sens. John Sampson, Malcolm Smith and Assemblyman Eric Stevenson.

Stevenson, a Bronx Democrat, was jettisoned from the Assembly this year after he was found guilty of accepting bribes.

Cuomo last year created a Moreland Commission to probe legislative wrongdoing; Lawmakers say the panel does not have the power to subpoena their outside income and business interests.
