How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Column: Make the Salahis Vanish into Oblivion- Do Not Charge Them

WASHINGTON – With a magical snap of a finger, we need to make the Salahis, the dashing, photogenic White House  party crashers, vanish from our sight. Poof! Go they must into oblivion!

How do you say we accomplish that?

Don’t file criminal charges. It will only drag out their drama, give them more face time on TV and the Internet, give them more ammunition for a book. Right now, they only have enough for a good Vanity Fair piece.

And frankly, the government doesn’t have a slam dunk case, be it trespassing or lying to a federal officer. The Salahis have emails, lots of excuses and some slick charm, which may be enough to undercut a conviction in a federal court in Washington.

It’s simply not worth the trouble at this point. The American people get it. It’s not cool to crash a state dinner at the White House. Yes, the Secret Service takes it all very seriously. Yes, so does Congress. Yes, so does the White House. Yes, so does the media, which has had a field day with it all.

In the mean time, if the Salahis need to keep crashing parties, they should set their sights a little lower, perhaps with some weddings or bar mitzvahs in the Washington area. Just make sure the President isn’t in attendance.
