WASHINGTON — It seems one way or another, authorities are going to figure out a way to make the Ken and Barbie couple known as Tareq and Michaele Salahi regret that they ever crashed the White House party last November 24.

The Washington Post’s Reliable Source column reports that not only are federal prosecutors still mulling over the possibility of criminal charges, but U.S. Department of Agriculture is looking into a $100,000 grant Tareq Salahi got to study the impact of Virginia winery tourism. The grant probe was first reported by the Washington Examiner.

The Post, citing “a source”, says that investigators are looking into whether Salahi simply recycled the results of an earlier study.

And on top of that, the column reports that Virginia officials are still probing fundraising activities of the Salahis through their business entity America’s Polo Cup.

WASHINGTON — The party-crashing Salahis — who are apparently “so yesterday” — are still in the crosshairs of federal authorities.

Ben Friedman, a spokesman U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, said Wednesday that the couple is still under investigation and no decision has been made whether to charge them criminally for crashing a White House party on November 24.

“There’s nothing further to report,” Friedman said.

Federal authorities could charge Tareq and Michaele Salahi with criminally trespassing or lying to a federal agent. But there are some observers who believe it could be a tough case to prove, and the government could end up being embarrassed if it loses the case.

Either way, even with a conviction, it’s not likely the couple would serve any jail time.
