House Dem IT Guys In Security Probe Secretly Took $100K In Iraqi Money

From the Daily Caller:
Rogue congressional staffers took $100,000 from an Iraqi politician while they had administrator-level access to the House of Representatives’ computer network, according to court documents examined by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. 
The money was a loan from Dr. Ali al-Attar, an Iraqi political figure, and was funneled through a company with “impossible”-to-decipher financial transactions that the congressional information technology (IT) staffers controlled. 
Imran Awan, ringleader of the group that includes his brothers Abid and Jamal, has provided IT services since 2005 for Florida Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman. The brothers are from Pakistan. 
The trio also worked for dozens of other House Democrats, including members of the intelligence, foreign affairs and homeland security committees. Those positions likely gave them access to congressional emails and other sensitive documents.

It is appropriate the benefactor's name is al-Attar. There was a famous Persian poet named al-Attar and the name means pharmacist, but also perfumer. There are perfume shops named al-Attar.

Sounds like the guy was dispensing a bit of "perfume" to the IT guys. $$ always has a fragrant scent to the corrupt.
