The Secret Service is possibly beginning a criminal investigation against the couple from Virginia who crashed a dinner at the White House, reports CBC. Michaele and Tareq Salahi made their way past security Tuesday to attend a dinner honouring Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
The pair were being filmed as potential candidates for Bravo reality show Real Housewives of D.C.
“As this moves closer to a criminal investigation, there’s less that we can say,” said Jim Mackin, a Secret Service spokesman. “I don’t want to jeopardize what could be a criminal investigation. We’re not leaving any option off the table at this point.”
