"In March 2017, FBI agents were tailing House of Representatives IT aides suspected of hacking Congress, and apprehended one at the airport trying to make a hasty exit to Pakistan. She refused to speak with them, and a search revealed that she was carrying an apparently illegal amount of cash.
The FBI allowed Hina Alvi, wife of Imran Awan, to board the plane anyway — then filed paperwork saying agents believed she had no intention of returning to the U.S."
Just when you thought it was safe with Tim Scott resigning, Lost Keys Ell has arisen from Burlington's political graveyard. If Burlington voters have any sense they will turn their ballots into silver bullets.
"Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was indicted Thursday on four counts including bank fraud and making false statements."
"Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July."
Will legacy media in Iowa's 2nd Congressional District ask our Congressman any questions regarding his dealings with the Anwans? Did the Anwans possibly receive double payments for services rendered to our congressman? Is all equipment account for? Worse yet, was any sensitive information possibly compromised in Congressman Loebsack's office?
The next time Congressman Loebsack visits our area, is the Burlington Ad Vertiser up to the task?
A tin pot dictator of a City Manager orchestrated it all. The great defender of the public's right to know, the Ad Vertiser, had nary a word to say about what was happening. Thanks to Spike for filling the void.
The party started breaking up when the Drunk Mayor resigned. The dictator City Manager left. Worden wormed his way into being City Manager, got his retirement and got out of town.
A competent City Manager was hired. Jim Ferneau went through the books and dropped a lit match through a manhole cover. The resulting methane blast exposed what many paying attention suspected. Ferneau pointed the way to clean up the mess Scott and others helped create.
Scott's harassing Ferneau to resign as City Manager is perhaps the last blow from the old gang who tormented Burlington a decade ago.
Good luck and good fortune to Mr. Ferneau in his future endeavors.
Scott & City Council Have Been Ignoring City Manager's Expert Advice
I see Tim Scott is still being his usual belligerent bully self. This time, City Manager Jim Ferneau said enough is enough.
For an unindicted accomplice in the Bruce Slagle/Doug Worden financial scam and coverup, Tim Scott should be hiding behind the drapes giving thanks the hoped-for forensic accountants never called the state auditor.
The whole bunch is too stupid to realize a competent replacement is a going to hurt.
