Don’t steal from the DNC, since it’s obviously going to lead to your arrest. An IT aide that was currently working for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was arrested Monday night in connection with bank fraud charges.

Awan and the IT Scam

Imran Awan was arrested Monday night trying to leave the country. He was arrested at Dulles International Airport, about 30 miles outside of Washington D.C.

Awan was an IT staffer who worked for many House Democrats and he was recently employed by Wasserman Schultz. Awan was allegedly at the center of an IT scam where he would double-charge the House for equipment and may have also exposed private House information online. A spokesperson for Wasserman Schultz says on Tuesday Awan was fired.

“Mr. Awan previously served as an employee in our office, but his services have been terminated,” David Damron said in a statement.

Awan’s House History

Awan and his family have been reportedly working for the House Dems for many years, at least over a decade. In 2012, Awan declared bankruptcy even though he made millions on the political payroll. In March, a group of House Dems fired Awan and one other staffer over the alleged involvement in the bankruptcy and the eventual criminal investigation. Fox News reported Tuesday that Wasserman Schultz still has Awan on her staff’s payroll despite him being barred from accessing the House’s computer system since February. So honestly, what’s really going on here?

We’ll keep you posted on any news to come pending investigation.
