Two Secret Service agents visited a Virginia winery Friday intending to question a couple whose appearance at a White House state dinner raised eyebrows this week, the winery manager told CNN.
Diane Weiss, manager at the Oasis Winery, in Hume, Virginia, said the agents wanted to speak with Tareq and Michaele Salahi. Weiss said she didn't know their whereabouts.
The Secret Service could not be reached for comment.
This White House photograph taken Tuesday evening shows Michaele Salahi, wearing a gold-accented red sari, clasping her hands around Obama's right hand as her smiling husband, Tareq, looks on. The dinner was held for visiting Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who is smiling next to the president in the photo.
