The search of the office at 1 Judiciary Square is part of "an ongoing investigation," said a spokeswoman for the FBI's D.C. Field Office, Lindsay Gotwin, said.
She said two men, Yusuf Acar and Sushil Bansal, had been arrested.
The outgoing Chief Technology Officer, Vivek Kundra, was appointed last week Chief Information Officer by the Obama administration. His last day at the city government office was February 4, a spokeswoman for D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty, Leslie Kershaw, said. He was appointed to the Washington post in 2007, and held it when Bansal's contract was awarded.

WASHINGTON, March 12 (Reuters) - The FBI raided the former office of Obama administration official Vivek Kundra and arrested two people in a corruption probe on Thursday, but Kundra is not a target of the investigation, a spokeswoman for Washington's mayor said.
The FBI searched the offices of the District of Columbia's chief technology officer, a post formerly held by Kundra, as it investigates employee corruption there, spokeswoman Mafara Hobson said.
President Barack Obama named Kundra, 34, to be the federal government's chief information officer last week, responsible for overseeing the government's computer systems.

I didn't say it did. It's a bribery case, and the extent of which is not yet known.
Acar (the guys arrested) makes $130K a year and he is a pretty low-level guy in the TECH just got busted taking bribes. What position is he in, and how much influence does he have that makes him a target in this? How high in the CT office does this go? These and many questions are the ones that await Kundar in the senate. Kundar ran the office when the alleged bribery occurred.
Even Money - Kundar withdraws his name in less than a week.
Like I said, coupled with everything else, Obama really can't be happy with his Nomination record at this point. Innocence or guilt outstanding.
