What an embarrassment! After six months of silence on the bizarre story of the Awan Brothers’ illegal activity while working for the head of the DNC, the New York Times has finally given in and meekly re-posted a white washed article from AP on the scandal. Regardless of your political persuasion, just play a little thought experiment and imagine if this story was surrounding the head of the GOP. You know damn well if the shoe was on the other foot, this would have the full attention of the mainstream media.
Just imagine if this was a Republican scandal as you read this:
In a plot Tom Clancy might have dreamed up, an IT staffer who’d worked for Democrats in Congress was arrested by federal officials and charged with bank fraud. Fox News has reported that officers and agents from the U.S. Capitol Police, the FBI and Customs and Border Protection were involved in the arrest of Imran Awan at Dulles International Airport not far from Washington, D.C., as he tried to fly away to Pakistan.
Democrats are being understandably quiet about this U.S. House of Representative’s staffer who had been employed by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz
(D-FL) as of Tuesday morning, but has now reportedly been fired. Politico has reported that Awan is “at the center of a criminal investigation potentially impacting dozens of lawmakers.” Awan was arrested after wiring $283,000 from the Congressional Federal Credit Union to Pakistan, says the Daily Caller. – Forbes
