Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-San Jose) issued the following statement today regarding the arrest of Ms. Susan Lindauer.
“I was shocked to learn from news reports today that Ms. Susan Lindauer, who served on my staff for an eight week period in 2002, was indicted for ‘conspiring to act as a spy for the Iraqi Intelligence Service.’ Ms. Lindauer served as Press Secretary in my Washington, D.C. office from March 11, 2002 until May 14, 2002. To my knowledge, this former employee had no access to sensitive information. Obviously, I had no reason to think that she was involved in this alleged activity. I have had no further contact with her since she left my employ. If there is any way I can assist with the investigation, I will happily do so.”
