Washington- It’s really hard to believe how someone could crash White House party deceiving the most tight security. But a Virginia couple, Michaele and Tareq Salahi, managed to slip into Tuesday night’s state dinner at the White House, even though they were not on the guest list.
President Barack Obama was not in danger since the party crashers undergone the same security screening– the magnetometer screening, for weapons as the 300-plus people actually invited to the dinner, in honor of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Salahis were well-known in the Virginia horse-country set. They were part of the cast of a reality show called “The Real Housewives of DC”.
The Secret Service learned about the security breach Wednesday, after a media inquiry prompted by the Salahis’ online boasts about having attended the private event, sources said.
Michaele Salahi’s Facebook page shows photos of the couple with a smiling Vice President Joe Biden. They also appear with White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty, CBS News anchor Katie Couric, Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., and three Marines in their dress blues.
Though the motive of the reality TV couple sneaking into White House state dinner, is not clear yet, investigation is going on. The Secret Service has begun scrutinizing its own security procedure to find out pitfall, if any.
