Blackmail on Capitol Hill: Democrats Panicking – Who’s Going Down?

Quite a few computer and Internet related scandals emerged after the elections, and one of them is being revisited now. This particular scandal involves IT specialists employed by Democrats and their computer programs.

Reports claim that four former House IT workers banned from the congressional network have been accused of data-theft. Imran Awan and his three relatives were all coworkers, but the police banned them from computer networks at the House of Representatives after under suspicions that they accessed congressional computers without permission.

This is what Pat Sowers stated. He’s been an IT for several House offices for 12 years stated:

“I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone. It’s been months at this point with no arrests. Something is rotten in Denmark.”

Sounds like a blackmail to  me. As reports state, the Awan crew has been “accused of stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network.”

According to a  manager at a tech-services company that works with Democratic House offices,

“There’s no question about it: If I was accused of a tenth of what these guys are accused of, they’d take me out in handcuffs that same day, and I’d never work again.”

Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida was the first one to employ Awan in 2005. Then, she renamed him an “advisor” to circumvent the Capitol Police’s computer network ban on the brothers.

According to another IT staff member, members “are saying don’t say anything, this will all blow over if we all don’t say anything.” The Awans “had [members] in their pocket,”and “there are a lot of members who could go down over this.”

Seems like there are some powerful government officials getting blackmails by the Awans.
