An Ohio Homeland Security official has been fired for failing to fully disclose his background when he began working for the state in late 2006.

Omar Alomari, 59, was fired Tuesday for dishonesty stemming from his failure to list his prior employment at Columbus State Community College, where he was fired after an improper consensual sexual affair with a student.

Alomari also gave "false information" when he was interviewed by investigators, according to his discharge letter from Thomas Stickrath, director of the Ohio Department of Public Safety.

Alomari, who was paid $76,107 a year homeland security's community engagement director, did not list his tenure at Columbus State from 1990 to 1996 when he submitted a job application and filled out background-check materials.

State officials began an administrative investigation of Alomari in May after the Jawa Report, a terrorism-related website, began digging into his background and publishing its findings. Alomari denied any wrongdoing at Columbus State.

Details of the investigation of Alomari were not immediately released. The report should be available Friday, a department spokeswoman said.

Laren Knoll, Alomari's lawyer, declined to comment this afternoon.
