Another Uninvited Couple Meets the President at White House Event
Another uninvited couple met Barack and Michelle Obama at a White House breakfast.
FOX News reported:
It was not a state dinner, and they did not crash it on purpose.
Still, a couple who showed up at the White House a day early for a tour somehow wound up at an invitation-only breakfast with President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle. It left to the White House once again to explain how people who were not on an event guest list wound up being ushered into the presidential mansion anyway.
The improbable adventure of Harvey and Paula Darden, Obama supporters from Georgia, took place on Veterans Day, two weeks before Virginia socialites Tareq and Michaele Salahi infamously crashed the Obamas’ state dinner for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
The Dardens mistakenly showed up a day early for a tour scheduled through their congressman.
The White House and Secret Service both said the Dardens went through the appropriate security screenings and were allowed into the breakfast as a courtesy because there were no public tours the day they arrived.
