Embattled Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz is keeping a really low profile these days. Schultz, has come under fire after her IT staffer Imran Awan was arrested on bank fraud charges after trying to flee the country.
Yesterday, Schultz spotted a Daily Caller reporter and “nervously” turned around and ran away. And she has ducked reporters from friendly media publications as well. As it turns out, she is feeling the heat:
“TheDC has heard multiple reports from witnesses who say that Wasserman Schultz has appeared despondent and jumpy since Awan’s arrest.
“Although Awan and his relatives lost their jobs with Democratic lawmakers, Wasserman Schultz kept him on her payroll until the day of his arrest.”
Her erratic behavior was blamed on ethnic profiling, according to this statement she released through her office:
“After details of the investigation were reviewed with us, my office was provided no evidence to indicate that laws had been broken, which over time, raised troubling concerns about due process, fair treatment and potential ethnic and religious profiling,” she said. “Upon learning of his arrest, he was terminated.”
Is she just embarrassed or is something else about to drop? We shall see.
