Congressional Investigation Into Wasserman Schultz IT Scandal Moves Forward, “At best for her that is gross misapplication of public funds that could merit resignation alone,”
A quaint little story that some in the news don’t feel warrants much attention. We think it does.
(From The Washington Free Beacon)
The scandal is said to have rocked the halls of Congress, despite little mainstream media coverage, sources said.
“The extent of the potential breaches has been made more clear” in recent weeks, according to one senior congressional source who would only speak on background when discussing the sensitive matter. “The inexplicable nature of the conduct of Wassermann Schultz and others has broadened” congressional interest.
Lawmakers are confused as to why Wasserman Schultz continued paying Awan and other staffers implicated in the breach for several months after this information came to light.
“At best for her that is gross misapplication of public funds that could merit resignation alone,” the source said. “There’s got to be more to that story.”
The accused staffers are believed to have had access to sensitive intelligence information related to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, as well as lawmaker’s personal information, prompting concerns the breach could be far deeper than initially suspected.
