Dem Rep’s Excuse for Pakistani Staffer Scandal: Cops are Racist

Unprincipled Ideologue and Florida Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz finds herself in hot water for refusing to fire IT staffer, Imran Awan, after law enforcement accused him of bank fraud. Wasserman Schultz maintains she exhibited civil virtue, not massive incompetence, by defending Awan.
 
Awan declared bankruptcy in 2012 but made millions of dollars working for House Democrats for over the past decade. Awan served Wasserman Schultz at her Washington, D.C. office since 2005. Throughout his employment, he allegedly double-charged Members of Congress for IT equipment, possibly exposing sensitive national security information, and wired $300,000 to Pakistan. Police arrested him at Dulles International Airport trying to flee the country.
 
Capitol Police began a criminal investigation into Awan’s nefarious scheme in February. Other Democratic representatives fired Awan in March. However, Wasserman Schultz kept Awan on her staff’s payroll until July 25, one day after his dramatic arrest and despite law enforcement barring him from working on congressional computer equipment and software.
 
In a brazen attempt to cover her rear-end, Wasserman Schultz now claims she had concerns over racial and ethnic profiling with Awan being a Pakistani Muslim. She also argued that investigators never presented her with any corroborating evidence – all but explicitly slandering them as racists and Islamophobic.
 
The reasons for Wasserman Schultz inaction remain unclear. A growing number of her colleagues want her to testify under oath about her knowledge of the gravity of the situation.
 
Capitol Police and FBI agents want to know why Awan may have stolen sensitive information pertaining to our national security and bilked taxpayers out of millions. His race and religious affiliation had nothing to do with their investigation.
 
The best-case scenario for Wasserman Schultz is that her ad hominem attacks are a desperate attempt to cover-up for her gross negligence. The worst-case scenario implies something far more sinister.
