Kundra Takes Leave of Absence


Until his appointment by President Barack Obama as CIO less than two weeks ago, Kundra was chief technology officer for the District of Columbia. But yesterday, Kundra's former ninth-floor office in a downtown government building was a crime scene. A police officer was stationed in the office lobby while investigators searched through records.

A White House official confirmed today that Kundra took a leave of absence from his new CIO job shortly after federal investigators arrested two men in the D.C. government office on bribery charges. The official would not elaborate on the reasons for the leave; there were no indications yesterday that Kundra was involved in any wrongdoing.

Not a lot can be read into the leave of absence. A guilty man might not take one; an innocent man might take one, to let things get sorted out so he can return without suspicion.

For how long did Acar work under Kundra? Did they have a past history? Did Kundra recommend or hire Acar?

That seems pretty relevant. But I haven't seen the answer yet.

Some Background: Seems like Kundra was doing business with AITC for a long time.

The business had a preference in being hired due to being a "small, local disadvantaged" company. Yay for government discrimination in choosing small, local, disadvantaged and worthy companies with which to do business.

Thanks to AHFF Geoff.
