The Democrats aren’t known for making good decisions and a couple of years ago they did exactly that when they decided to hire a recently fired McDonald’s employee to serve as their IT guy.
Rao Abbas, a burger flipper turned IT guy and his peers were later “accused of stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network,” reports Politico.
The key figure behind this entire scandal was Imran Awan, who Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz hired in 2005 to serve as her main IT guy. It was Awan that later convinced Schultz to hire his brothers Abid and Jamal, his wife Hina, his brother’s wife Natalia, and his best friend Abbas.
Conservative Tribune reports:
And this despite Abbas being a veritable idiot who lived in the basement of a home owned by Hina. In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, upstairs tenant Cristal Perpignan claimed that Abbas was “home most days” and had been terminated from McDonald’s prior to him being hired by Schultz and her peers.
The kid was a real winner, right? Wrong. And so it’s no surprise that Awan, Abbas and the rest of their crew of flunkies were later accused of robbing the Democrats blind.
In fact, during a budget hearing with the U.S. Capitol Police just last month, Schultz whined about her stolen equipment not being promptly returned to her, as reported by the New York Observer.
“I don’t understand how that is possible,” she moaned. “Members’ equipment is members’ equipment. My understanding is that the Capitol Police is not able to confiscate members’ equipment when the member is not under investigation. It is their equipment and it is supposed to be returned.”
What kind of twisted logic is that? Of course the equipment had to be returned, but you weren’t borrowing it, you were STEALING it.
I wish this was a joke, but this is the kind of negligence that Democrats are so famous for.
