Good afternoon, everyone. Today in Salahi news:
Secret Service director Marc Sullivan tells the House Homeland Security Committee that the agents responsible for letting Michaele and Tareq Salahi through a security checkpoint last week have been put on administrative leave, and could lose their jobs. As the Post reported yesterday, the Salahis and White House social secretary Desirée Rogers declined to appear at today's committee hearing, but Rep. Peter King has said he would support a subpoena for Rogers to testify.
Michaele Salahi requested that her name be added to the Redskins cheerleader alumni roster for 1991 -- but was she ever actually a Redskins cheerleader? Other alums say no. Paul Farhi investigates. (Let it be noted that this story contains what may be the Post's best quote of the year: "For her to get out there and think she can just shake her pompoms is upsetting.")
The state of Virginia has launched a formal investigation into America's Polo Cup, the Salahi's business entity, which the couple says raises funds for their charitable organization.
And, if you missed it, the White House sought yesterday -- sadly, in vain -- to put an end to all this madness with a memo regarding future security protocol at social events.
Of course, when it comes to the Salahis, every day it's something new. For links to all the latest stories about how Michaele and Tareq Salahi got into the White House state dinner -- and all the fallout since, for both the couple and the White House -- check in here.
Elsewhere in today's Style section: Jen Chaney interviews director-producer Jason Reitman about his new movie, "Up In the Air." DeNeen Brown visits Willard Wigan's latest exhibit of micro-sculpture in Georgetown. And Jura Koncius previews the White House's Christmas decorations.
