NRCC Hits Wasserman Schultz for Handling of IT Staffer Scandal

‘Instead of joining her Democratic colleagues, Schultz waited until after the arrest to fire Awan’

NRCC Hits Wasserman Schultz for Handling of IT Staffer Scandal (The Washington Free Beacon)

The National Republican Congressional Committee on Wednesday released a new ad titled "Corrupt," which targets Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) for her handling of the scandal involving her now-former IT staffer, Imran Awan.

Schultz has faced backlash in recent weeks for employing Awan, who had been under federal investigation since February for an equipment and data scam in the House; she only fired Awan after he attempted to flee the United States. He was arrested in late July at Dulles Airport in Virginia after trying to fly to his native Pakistan.

The "five-figure ad buy" starts out with a police chase, in which a police car is following another vehicle to an airport.
