The White House Gatecrasher Connection
First it was the Salahis, and now it looks like a third individual was at the White House state dinner without a ticket.
Surveillance cameras show an unidentified man at the reception. The Secret Service confirms that that man is Carlos Allen. He denies being at the event, although he has since hired a lawyer.
His lawyer, A. Scott Bolden, stated that his client was in attendance, had been invited and stayed throughout the evening.
Bolden denies his client has any close relationship with the Salahis, despite this picture of Michaele Salahi with Allen and another woman. (the photo has recently been removed from Allen's HushGalleria site.) The picture was taken at Paul Gardner's Beyonce After Party Event.
Bolden stated that Allen met the Salahis for the first time at the state dinner. "He attended the same event. But the connection ends there. He didn't have any communications with them about the dinner."
The Salahis also crashed the Congressional Black Caucus Dinner, Sept. 26. Paul Gardner, who was representing the Salahis' state dinner offense, hired his own lawyer after the Salahis appeared on the Today Show claiming that thay went to the CBC dinner as the "proud guest" of the Gardner Law Group. Gardner is now a witness.
The Salahis will be hosting a Jan. 16, event at "Pure" nightclub in Ceasars Palace. So they are at least invited to this party, and are being paid $5,000 for it.
