Democrats are desperately protecting–and the media is dutifully ignoring–the Pakistani family who stole millions from taxpayers while working for House Democrats.
Capitol Police are investigating the Awan brothers for their possible involvement in extortion, tax fraud, insurance fraud, and bankruptcy fraud as well as other crimes. Police worry that the money was funneled overseas – possibly to sponsor terrorism (via The Daily Caller).
Imran Awan, his two brothers Abid and Jamal, and his wife Hina, worked as IT aides for congressional Democrats until Capitol Police blocked them from accessing the government computer network.
Since 2009, the Awan family has netted over $4 million from taxpayers while being paid top dollars as IT staffers for the Democrats. However, discrepancies indicated that the Awans barely worked at all.
The brothers made many long trips to their home country of Pakistan while on the Democrats’ payroll, leading many to assume they were “ghost employees.”
Imran did much of the work on Capitol Hill, and his family members were only employed to circumvent rules limiting the pay of congressional staffers.
Imran Awan was employed by as many as 30 Democrats and did little IT work for any of them. All the while, he and his family members were stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of computer equipment and classified data.
The Awans rose to prominence after Imran obtained a job with Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2005. The brothers were able to spread their influence across the Democrat Party while working for the prominent politician. It was later revealed that Imran had access to Schultz’s iPad containing classified information.
The Democrats have vehemently defended the actions of these crooks, leading many to think the Awans are blackmailing Democrats. One IT aide working in Washington remarked, “If I was accused of a tenth of what these guys are accused of, they’d take me out in handcuffs that same day, and I’d never work again,” adding, “I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone” (via The Daily Caller).
While the Awans were making millions off House Democrats, they were also engaging in fraudulent businesses and schemes in Virginia. The brothers owned a fake used car lot and owned a network of rental properties that they failed to disclose.
Despite the numerous sources of income, the Awans all live in modest houses and drive modest cars, leading Capitol Police to assume the money is being funneled overseas and financing unknown organizations.
