The administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, which handles procurement policy for the White House’s Office of Management and Budget, has been arrested on a three-count indictment. His name is David Hossein Safavian. He’s been charged with making false statements to a GSA ethics officer and the GSA-OIG, along with obstruction of a GSA-OIG investigation.
Josh Marshall has the full story.
Atrios adds more:
[Safavian is] also, well, another hack with no experience in his field.
Mr. Safavian’s wife? Oh, that’s Jennifer Safavian. Her job? Chief counsel on oversight and investigations on the House Government Reform Committee.
Their latest job? Heading up the sham Katrina investigation…
Yeah. Didn’t see that one coming.
