White House Dinner Crashed

Washington, D.C. (The Washington Post) -- Secret Service agents in Washington, D.C. are searching for a couple who reportedly crashed President Barack Obama's first State Dinner at the White House, Tuesday night.

The couple has been identified as Tareq and Michaele Salahi from Northern Virginia. The couple is described as "polo-playing...aspiring reality TV stars".

The Salahi's were caught on video at the dinner and Facebook pictures of the event were posted by the couple.

Secret Service agent Edwin Donovan has issued the following statement:
"Everyone who enters the White House grounds goes through magnetometers and several other levels of screenings". Donovan goes onto say that the checkpoint "did not follow proper procedures" to determine if the two were on the guest list. Donovan says no one, including the president were ever in any real danger.

Over 300 attendees were on the guest list for the dinner.
