This is not good

Three brothers who managed office information technology for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers were abruptly relieved of their duties on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission.

Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nation’s most sensitive issues and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.
This may be a standard 'steal information and stuff to sell', or it may be a lot worse. That 'intelligence' and 'foreign affairs' makes me think worse.

Find out who the idiot was that thought it was a good idea to hire them and shoot them first.

For that matter, there were apparently indications bad stuff was happening, so why wasn't this investigated a lot sooner and something done?

Aside from the probably usual 'reasons'(based on the names), that is.
