Politico is reporting, The N.Y. Times says Bravo was filming the State-Dinner crashers the day of the breach: “The channel confirmed that Michaele Salahi was being seriously considered for the coming series ‘The Real Housewives of D.C.'” Bravo said in a statement that Half Yard Productions, producers of the series, “were filming the Salahis on that day.” L.A. Times: “Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said initial results of the investigation showed that ‘our procedure wasn’t followed’ at one security checkpoint, allowing the uninvited guests to enter. An administration official said the gate-crashing was apparently a breakdown in Secret Service screening and not the work of the White House social office
I have been an invited guest by two Presidents at two State Dinners. It is a big deal and security is always a big deal before getting in and and when pushing you out the door literally. Have the crashers put a mark on the dinner and its importance or is it just a funny prank that should be dismissed?
