D.C. Official Arrested in Federal Bribery Sting
By Del Quentin Wilber
An official in the D.C. government's office of the chief technology officer has been arrested in a federal bribery sting, according to law enforcement sources.
Yusuf Acar, 40, was taken into custody this morning by FBI agents at his home in Northwest Washington, the sources said. The nature of the charges could not be determined. Channing Phillips, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office, declined to comment on the arrest, saying the case "is under seal."
Acar serves as an information systems security officer in the D.C. government. He worked for Vivek Kundra, the District's chief technology officer. Kundra recently left D.C. government to become President Obama's federal chief information officer.
Mafara Hobson, a spokeswoman for the mayor, declined to comment this morning.
