Better Late…Secret Service Stops The Salahis Outside White House
ABC News is reporting that the Secret Service stopped a limousine carrying Michaele and Tareq Salahi last night, as it ran a red light and tried to enter a restricted parking area for the White House. The Salahis are best known for crashing the last state dinner, and the White House made it known that last night’s dinner would be a different story.
From ABC News:
The limo driver ran through a red light around 8 p.m., just blocks from the White House and was stopped by a uniformed Secret Service officer, according to Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan. The driver had signaled to turn into a restricted area near the Ellipse. The attention-hungry couple was among those in the limo. They were released and went to dinner a few blocks from the White House after the incident. The limo driver was issued an infraction for running the red light.
This latest incident will, no doubt, help the Salahis to publicize their appearance in the upcoming Bravo reality show “Real Housewives of DC,” but I’m looking forward to them fighting the ticket in court by insisting that the Department of transportation invited them to run that light.
