Vivek Kundra has returned to work as the federal chief information officer.
The New York Times reported last night that Kundra, who was placed on leave following an FBI raid of his former offices last week, was reinstated by the White House Tuesday. Kundra was not a target of the FBI investigation.
According to the Times’ Caucus blog, Gov. Tim Kaine, D-Va., for whom Kundra once worked, lobbied for Kundra’s return. Kaine is also the chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
