Obama official not a target in FBI raid -DC spox

WASHINGTON, March 12 (Reuters) - The FBI raided the former office of Obama administration official Vivek Kundra in a corruption probe on Thursday but Kundra is not a target of the investigation, a spokeswoman for Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty said.

The FBI was searching the offices of the District of Columbia’s chief technology officer, a position formerly held by Kundra, as it investigates employees for corruption there, spokeswoman Mafara Hobson said.

President Barack Obama named Kundra to be the federal government’s chief information officer last week.
