Obama Appointee’s Office Raided By FBI, Two Arrested

WTOP in DC: [1]

WASHINGTON – A D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer employee and a government contractor have been arrested in a federal bribery sting, sources tell WTOP.

D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer employee Yusuf Acar and Advanced Integrated Technologies Corporation President and CEO Sushil Bansal have been arrested, sources tell WTOP.

Acar, 40, was taken into custody Thursday morning by FBI agents at his home in Northwest D.C.

Bansal has received multiple contracts from the D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Office, including contracts to develop Web-enabled applications and IT and anti-spyware support.

The FBI is now serving a search warrant at the office of D.C.’s Chief Technology Officer, WTOP has learned.

“We are there as part of a continuing ongoing criminal investigation,” FBI Washington Field Office spokesperson Katherine Schweit tells WTOP.

Schweit would not comment on the details of the investigation

Ya know at some point, even Obama’s supporters are going to start asking questions. Indeed, one commentor on the WTOP site, apparently a bit red-faced says:

I’m starting to feel a little goofy for voting for him. Where does he find these people?

Well, in answer, I offer again what I said yesterday:

Like all new Presdients, Obama picked people with whom he can work and who are of a mind like to his own on the issues of the day, and things like integrity, worldview and so on. This is the very flower of the liberal politics he espouses, and particularly, the Chicago style of liberal politics Obama was steeped in. Add a generous dash of Soros money and Clintonista muscle, and I suspect what we see right now, is what we get, and that he’s not going to be any better than this for the next four years.
