Florida Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has had a rough week — and what she did when she was approached by the media proves it.
The former head of the Democrat National Committee representative ran the other way when she caught sight of members of the media, who no doubt wanted to ask her about Imran Awan, the former employee of congressional Democrats accused of stealing computers and data systems in February, whom she kept on her payroll.
Awan was arrested earlier this week on bank-fraud charges as he attempted to board a flight to Pakistan.
The Daily Caller reported that when Wasserman Schultz caught sight of their reporters on the Capitol steps on Wednesday, she “nervously turned around and ran back up the steps with her staffer in tow.”
The Miami Herald also reported that Wasserman Schultz declined to answer questions about Awan on Wednesday, and her spokesman told a reporter that she would not take questions about him.
The Daily Caller reported that it had heard “multiple reports from witnesses” who say that Wasserman Schultz has appeared “despondent and jumpy” since Awan’s arrest.
And word in Florida politcis is that she’s not doing too well.

In fact, she might be losing it.

Talk about humiliating and hilarious.
Late Wednesday, Wasserman Schultz released the following statement about the Awan arrest:
“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,” the statement said. “Upon learning of his arrest, he was terminated.”
That’s apparently her story and she’s sticking with it — for now.
Wasserman Schultz certainly is not helping her case by avoiding the media and any questions they might have about Awan.
If she doesn’t come clean, the coming weeks might get even worse.
