A week after resigning as CTO of the District of Columbia to become the first chief information officer of the United States of America under the Obama administration, the FBI raided the old D.C. offices of Delhi-born Vivek Kundra and arrested a couple of the guys who used to work for him in a “federal bribery sting,” according to a story in the Washington Post.
Kundra, at the time, was giving a speech at a FOSE summit about transparency in government.
The guys arrested were Yusuf Acar who was information systems security officer responsible for government contracts under Kundra and Sushil Bansall, an erstwhile project manager for the D.C. government and founder of a consulting firm called Advanced Integrated Technologies Corporation with contracts with the city.
The case against the pair is sealed, the paper said.
Facts are thin on the ground.
Reuters reports being told Kundra is not a target of the investigation.
