Two senators recently stated action should be taken against the couple who crashed a recent White House state dinner.
Washington (WiredPRNews.com) – Two senators have recently stated charges should be pursued in the case of a Virginia couple who crashed the first state dinner of the administration of President Barack Obama. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Republican Jon Kyl of Arizona and Democrat Evan Bayh of Indiana stated in an interview on Sunday that action should be taken after Michaele and Tareq Salahi attended the dinner despite not being on the guest list.
Bayh is quoted by the AP as stating on “Fox News Sunday,” “You’ve got to send a strong deterrent that people just don’t do this kind of thing.”
Kyl is further quoted as stating in agreement with Bayh’s assertion, “If it’s a federal crime to lie to a federal agent, and these people didn’t tell the truth about their invitation, then they should be in some way brought to justice here, again, as an example to others not to do it.”
Officials are reportedly still investigating the matter.
