Understanding The Awan Connection
Understanding the Awan connection
Scott wrote today about the “Awan connection” — a scandal, finally getting some attention, that involves House staffers with ties to Pakistan who are accused of stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network. Interest in the scandal has been reinforced by the arrest of Imran Awan Monday evening as he was about to board a flight to Lahore, Pakistan.
The arrest was based on suspicion of fraud against the Congressional Federal Credit Union in a real estate loan, not IT improprieties. Still, as Scott said, something is happening here.
