Salahi Facebook photo subterfuge? You decide.
Tareq and Michaele Salahi, you devils! How you tease and awe and confuse us. The most astonishing photo in their vast VIP-studded album (still on Facebook) is in the file labeled "Obama & Inauguration surrounding events." There they are with Randy Jackson, the Black Eyed Peas and ... the man himself, Barack Obama.
They've bragged to friends about getting backstage at the Lincoln Memorial concert and other inaugural events. But did they really get that close to POTUS on that very busy weekend for him? Heck, did Randy get that close? And wasn't Fergie on her Maldives honeymoon? (Okay, we Googled that.)
Answer: This photo was not taken at Obama's inauguration -- but at a June 2005 Rock the Vote party at the Building Museum, attended by Jackson, the Peas, a much-less-famous Sen. Obama ... and, yes, the hosts confirm for us, the Salahis. (Unknown if they bought a ticket; tables started at $5,000). Photo evidence: The Peas, same clothes, at a news photo from the 2005 event.
