WASHINGTON -- Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided the Office of Special Counsel here, seizing computers and documents belonging to the agency chief Scott Bloch and staff.
More than a dozen FBI agents served grand jury subpoenas shortly after 10 a.m., shutting down the agency's computer network and searching its offices, as well as Mr. Bloch's home. Employees said the searches appeared focused on alleged obstruction of justice by Mr. Bloch during the course of an 2006 inquiry into his conduct in office.

This is about allegations that Bloch hired “Geeks on Call” to erase some computer disk drives.
WTF is this all about? I can’t open the article as I don’t belong to the WSJ club.
What was this guy investigating?
Another satisfied Microsoft customer.
Scott Bloch’s web page -
I’m not a subscriber, so I can’t get any more details. Could you summarize it for us? Thanks.
According to the wiki on Bloch, from the very start he has been the target of the homosexual lobby, who have done their level best to destroy him.
This goes to show how vehement this lobby can be. Truthfully, it says more about their strength as a special interest group than it does for any “agenda”. Sexuality doesn’t matter, only money and power.
So, this was his personal computer in his home? Imagine the trouble he’d be in if he’d asked a government employed FBI computer geek to fix it. It’s a no win situation.
Please see #7 above.
If Bloch was destroying evidence and obstructing justice, I don’t care who exposes it or their agenda.
I realize the need for excerpts, but posting an article that requires membership is a waste of space and time. I won't sign up with any of these news sites just to read their stupid articles. I wish the people who post links to sites that require membership would at least put that info in their post.
If I were intending to destroy electronic evidence, I probably wouldn’t be using “Geeks on Call”. They probably have no concept of how a file system really works, so they wouldn’t know how to eliminate all traces of the data on the disk drive.
How about a heavy duty industrial sized magnet?
I found an article from a different source and posted the link in #7.
Should we slow down news coverage because it is unfair to non-subscribers?
Devices called “bulk erasers” exist for this purpose.
remember fbi raid on curt weldon two weeks before election?
turned out to be a nonstory but it costs weldon his job which
is what clinton’s wanted. maybe this guy is guilty, but i do not
Interesting, he was also responsible for defending whistleblowers.
Next we'll hear rumors, speculation, accusations, pundits that discuss it on TV and radio, hearsay, “expert” testimony from bystanders, former friends, ex girl friends........ When the dust settles he'll be crushed and the fact that he'll be found innocent won't matter either. I am very skeptical of these sorts of things, they tend to reek of political motivation when you look behind the scene, which I can't in this case.
