If you haven’t been following the Case of Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Pricey IT Guy, the Daily Caller’s own Luke Rosiak has been all over it. You can check out his archive of stories here. Basically, a very shady character named Imran Awan spent over a decade working IT for a number of Democrats, getting paid a lot of money for work that nobody can seem to account for. And he seems to have had access to a lot more information than he was supposed to have. Yet even after he was banned from the House network, DWS kept him on her payroll. He was arrested for bank fraud last week while trying to flee to Pakistan, and DWS has kept her yap shut about it.

Until now. Anthony Man, Broward County Sun-Sentinel:

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz defiantly stands by her decision to keep an information technology aide on her payroll for six months after he was banned from the House network and fired by other members of Congress.

“I believe that I did the right thing, and I would do it again,” Wasserman Schultz said Thursday in an exclusive interview with the Sun Sentinel. “There are times when you can’t be afraid to stand alone, and you have to stand up for what’s right.

“It would have been easier for me to just fire him,” she said.

Note: She fired him. After he was arrested while trying to skip the country.

What the hell does this guy have on her? It must be a doozy.

Of course, she knows her core audience. She knows what they want to believe:

And, she said, she believes he may have been put under scrutiny because of his religious faith. Awan is Muslim.

Yep, that must be it. He’d have gotten away with it too, if not for those blasted meddling Christians.

Nothing about this whole thing surprises me, because I just assume politicians are corrupt. And I also assume that if they’re Democrats, they’ll get away with it. But maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised. Maybe Debbie Wasserman Schultz will be brought to account.

Hey, anything can happen!

Editor’s Note:

The Daily Caller, Inc., the Daily Caller News Foundation, and Luke Rosiak have settled a defamation lawsuit brought by Imran Awan, Abid Awan, Jamal Awan, Tina Alvi, and Rao Abbas (“the Plaintiffs”), in the D.C. Superior Court, Awan et al. v. The Daily Caller, Inc. et al., No. 2020 CA 000652 B (D.C. Super.) (“The Lawsuit”).
The Plaintiffs filed the Lawsuit in 2020, alleging that they were defamed by statements made by The Daily Caller entities and Mr. Rosiak, including statements in Obstruction of Justice, a 2019 book authored by Mr. Rosiak and published by Regnery Publishing, a business of Salem Media Group, Inc., about the Plaintiffs’ work for the U.S. House of Representatives. In response, The Daily Caller entities and Mr. Rosiak each denied liability and contested the Plaintiffs’ claims. 
None of the Defendants has admitted to any fault as part of this settlement. Nevertheless, The Daily Caller entities and Mr. Rosiak recognize that no charges have ever been filed against the Plaintiffs relating to their congressional IT work.
