Is the party over for Michaele and Tareq Salahi? Not only may the couple face a subpoena to testify to Congress about whether they crashed the State Dinner, the state of Virginia has opened a formal investigation into their business Thursday. In separate fallout, two Secret Service agents who led the Salahis through a checkpoint have been put on leave and could face dismissal and White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says he's "happy to look at" a subpoena for social secretary Desiree Rogers. According to a statement, Virginia is looking into the fundraising practices of the couple’s America’s Polo Cup organization. The Salahis deemed the spring gala that began in 2007 as the “world’s most prestigious and largest” charity event of its kind, telling sponsors that proceeds go to the federally approved nonprofit Journey for the Cure. But paperwork filed with the state reveals that the Salahis are the only executives of both organizations and list the couple’s home as their business address. While Tareq Salahi told the paper last year that the inaugural event raised about $250,000 for charity, the paperwork he filed with the state reported the foundation received $18,608 that year and donated $15,000 to other stated causes.
