Ohio ex-deputy treasurer arrested in Pakistan



Published: Wed, April 30, 2014 @ 2:21 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A former Ohio deputy treasurer facing 15 years in prison for bribery and conspiracy has been arrested in Pakistan on suspicion of traveling using fake documents.

The Federal Investigation Agency in Punjab province says Amer Ahmad, of Chicago, was picked up Monday at Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore.

The agency’s local director says Ahmad was traveling with $176,000, plus some European currency. His flight arrived from Mexico.

Federal prosecutors in Columbus issued an arrest warrant for Ahmad on Friday after his wife sought a protective order in Chicago and alleged he threatened her when she refused to get him a fake birth certificate from Pakistan for a passport.

Ahmad worked for two Ohio treasurers, Democrats Richard Cordray and Kevin Boyce, and later as comptroller under Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Where the hell did he get the $176,000?
