Salahi Ready to 'Crash the Vote'
Reality show star and alleged White House crasher launches gubernatorial campaign website.
Tareq Salahi, the former cast member of The Real Housewives of DC who earned star status when he and then-wife Michaele allegedly crashed a White House state dinner, launched a "Crash the Vote" website Tuesday for his bid for the Virginia governor's mansion.
Salahi is not seen as a serious threat, but he is the only contender to go against Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli since Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling announced last week he would not seek the GOP nomination.
Salahi said in October he will call his campaign “Crash the Vote,” a reference to the stunt he allegedly pulled in 2009 at the White House dinner for India’s Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
