Democratic leader Vito Lopez may find himself boxed in by federal and state investigators.

The Brooklyn Assemblyman is reportedly at the center of two federal investigations.

The city's Department of Investigation is also said to be looking into a network of non-profit groups controled by Lopez.

The Brooklyn district attorney has stepped back from the case, leaving it to a special prosecutor.
