At least two employees of the District of Columbia's Office of the Chief Technology Officer were arrested today, as FBI agents conducted a search in what several law enforcement officials say is a corruption investigation.
The former head of the office, Vivek Kundra, was just last week named by the president to be Chief Information Officer for the Obama administration, but officials say he was not a target of the investigation.
The FBI vetted his White House appointment. If he had been thought to be involved in any corruption at that point, it would have been flagged, one official says. But, the official cautions, who knows where the investigation will go from here?
The D.C. office searched today handles all of the city's computer contracting and maintains many city records, including the terms of local government contracts.
