The Guardian is out with the photograph of Michaele Salahi meeting Barack Obama. From their post:
The socialite couple who gatecrashed a White House dinner, duping the world’s most sophisticated security service, may face criminal charges for the stunt.
News of potential charges came as a new photograph emerged of Michaele and Tareq Salahi meeting Barack Obama at the president’s first state dinner.
The couple embarrassed White House security by talking their way into the banquet for Manmohan Singh, the Indian prime minister, eventually shaking hands with Obama in the receiving line. What they said to officers at the checkpoint restricting access to the White House is unclear, but it is a crime to knowingly make false statements on matters within the federal government’s jurisdiction, prompting a chastened secret service to threaten legal action.
Kind of scary isn’t it? I’m thinking that some heads will roll in the Secret Service.
