Obama Tech Pick’s Office is Raided by FBI Agents

Published March 13, 2009

The D.C. offices of Vivek Kundra, President Barack Obama’s pick to be the White House’s first-ever chief information officer, were searched by FBI agents Thursday, reports the Associated Press.

The raid led to the arrest of a city government employee and another man. According to an agency spokeswoman, the FBI searched the offices as part of an ongoing investigation.

Kundra recently left his position as D.C.’s chief technology officer to take the position at the White House. A spokeswoman for D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty would only say that an investigation is in progress, but would not elaborate on its nature.
