Obama Aide on Leave After FBI Raid

This doesn’t look good: Obama’s new computer chief has taken a leave of absence after the FBI raided his old District of Columbia office and arrested two of his former colleagues on corruption charges. While Vivek Kundra—whom Obama chose to coordinate federal computer systems, was not charged—Yusuf Acar, security chief at the city’s technology office, was ordered held without bond and Sushil Bansal, technology consultant, was released but ordered not to leave the area or conduct overseas financial transactions. Acar, who worked under Kundra, and Bansal are accused of defrauding the government through “a variety of schemes, including billing the city for items that were never delivered and ‘ghost’ contract employees who did not work,” the AP reports.
