Update: Another Arrested in Bribery Sting

Personnel is policy:

A D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer employee and a private 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 (AITC) 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.

In 2008, Bansal's firm received .Net Development Support and Peoplesoft Consulting Support contracts from the D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Office totaling $350,000.

AITC has also received contracts from the D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles. In 2008, Bansal received the Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the Association of Indians in America, according to AITC's Web site.

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.

Poor, poor Obama. Such an insightful genius, and yet has no ability whatsoever to see people for who they are. Jeremiah Wright a racist? Get out!

Thanks to J.

Correction: The office of the CTO, not the home, is being searched, as we knew before.

I do not understand how I got this one wrong; I read "home" the first time, thought "That can't be right," and so read it again specifically to make sure "home" was mentioned. And the second time I read it, it also said "home." Or at least that's what my eyes told me.

I really don't know what happened here. Sometimes I jumble up the lines of an article, my eye reading words from either below or above the line I'm supposed to be reading them; maybe I did something like that here.

Anyway, sorry. Office, not home.
