In my experience, these kinds of stories tend to "change" throughout the day..... so here is how it appeared just now...

FBI searches DC government office, arrests 2

By DEVLIN BARRETT, Associated Press Writer Devlin Barrett, Associated Press Writer 51 mins ago

WASHINGTON – FBI agents have arrested a District of Columbia government worker and another man while they search the offices of the city's chief technology officer.

The head of that city office, Vivek Kundra, recently left to take a White House technology post.

A law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity because charges had not yet been unsealed, said worker Yusuf Acar was arrested Thursday. Another man, Sushil Bansal, was also arrested. A court appearance is expected later in the day.

Katherine Schweit, spokeswoman for the FBI's Washington field office, said the search was being conducted as part of an ongoing investigation.

Schweit declined to give the subject of the investigation, or comment further on the case.

President Barack Obama named Kundra earlier this month to help oversee government technology, including the ability of computer systems to speak to each other and security for vast federal information databanks.

Mafara Hobson, a spokeswoman for Mayor Adrian Fenty, said an investigation is ongoing, but she would not reveal any specific information about the case.

The interesting one this week was saying that the Jewish lobby had killed his chances... Some of the main Jewish lobbying groups replied with We didn't say anything.  Of course he was working for China...

And here is some additional info:
 

Kundra: All OK, We Think

By Nicholas Thompson EmailMarch 12, 2009 | 11:43:25 AM

Vivekkundra_2 

This morning, FBI officials raided the DC city government offices of former DC CTO, and incoming Obama CIO, Vivek Kundra. It's part of an investigation into alleged corruption on the part of an aide, Yusuf Acar.

The big question for Wired readers is: Will the investigation and problems touch the much-lauded incoming tech geek? And the answer, it seems, is no.

A source close to the Obama tech team wrote to us: "Kundra will be fine. His aide will not."

This is a good sign for data.gov and the Wired open-government wiki where users are proposing ideas for exactly what data Kundra should open up.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
More on the guy that was arrested:
 
Posted on March 12th, 2009 in Crimes, Nation, Barack Obama, politics by lalate

Yusuf Acar has been arrested. FBI agents handed an arrest to Chief Technology Officer’s Yusuf Acar moments ago.

Acar details are still coming in.

LALATE can report that Yusuf Acar is head of IT Technology in the Washington DC city government’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer.

Acar is said to be a private contractor.

WTOP is reporting his arrest is on federal bribery charges. Also arrested are reportedly Advanced Integrated Technologies Corporation (AITC) President and CEO Sushil Bansal.

Acar is 40 and in custody at time of report after FBI agents raided his home in Northwest D.C. and took him Thursday morning.

Says reports:

In 2008, Bansal’s firm received .Net Development Support and Peoplesoft Consulting Support contracts from the D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Office totaling $350,000.

AITC has also received contracts from the D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles. In 2008, Bansal received the Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the Association of Indians in America, according to AITC’s Web site.

FBI agents confirm a “continuing ongoing criminal investigation”.

Luck has nothing to do with it. All of his anointed are of the same ilk. Chi-town politics at its finest.

lol, I was kidding.   Did you see the skit about how "unlucky" obama is on Glen Beck?  I will see if I can find it.
 
 
.. a quick google.  I think Glen Beck needs to update this script.  A lot has happened since October 16.
