DEVELOPING STORY: WTOP reports FBI issues search warrant on DC CTO office

UPDATE: WTOP report Mark Segraves reports (via Twitter) that “An official in the D.C. government’s office of the chief technology officer has been arrested in a federal bribery sting… Yusuf Acar, 40, was taken into custody this morning by FBI agents at his home in Northwest Washington, the sources said.”

WTOP radio , the sister station to Federal News Radio 1500 AM — and now Politico are reporting that the FBI have issued a search warrant at the offices of the DC Chief Technology Officer’s office.

Of course, the former DC CTO Vivek Kundra has been named the Obama administration’s chief information officer. [Hear Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s interview with Kurndra from this week — not related to the FBI search, of course.]
