Wasserman Schultz Finally Fires Part-Time IT Aide Imran Awan After Arrest – He Made $165,000/yr.
Three brothers who managed office IT for government officials were relieved of their duties in February on suspicion that they accessed specific computer networks without permission, also known as hacking.
Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives in February.
Imran Awan was arrested on Monday night trying to flee the country with $12,000 of cash on him.
They accessed computers unauthorized. They were getting foreign information. The three brothers were making $161,000, $165,000, and $160,000.
One of the brothers has a criminal background.
According to reports earlier this week Imran Awan was still employed by Wasserman Schultz after his arrest on Monday night.
David Damron, spokesman for Wasserman Schultz, told FOX News reporter Chad Pergram that Awan was terminated on Tuesday.
