Tech Company official pleads guilty to bribing DC employees

The chief executive of a District-based contracting firm admitted in federal court Tuesday that he participated in a bribery and kickback scheme that involved the District government's technology office.

Sushil Bansal, 42, president and chief executive of Advanced Integrated Technology Corp., pleaded guilty in federal court in the District to bribery of a public official.

Bansal, of Dunn Loring, admitted that between 2005 and 2009 he and his company paid more than $700,000 in bribes to District technology office employees, acording to court records. In return, the documents state, the employees favored Bansal's company when awarding contracts, overpaid for the firm's services and paid "ghost employees" who did no work.

Yusuf Acar, a former acting chief technology security officer Office of the Chief Technology Officer, pleaded guilty to bribery in December in connection with the scheme.

Bansal is scheduled to be sentenced July 16.

Another good reason why the nation's capital does not merit home rule. Ever since they achieved it, they have driven that city into the ground in spite of all the welfare payments from the feds. Be a FONZ. Move to DC where Marion Barry was elected mayor.

There's no way that this is the only time over the past few years something like this has happened within the DC government.
