The Fox affiliate in Washington, D.C., reports that Michaele and Tareq Salahi, the couple being investigated for crashing the White House state dinner without an invitation, also crashed the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation gala in September.
A spokesman for the foundation said the couple was escorted out of the gala -- where President Obama spoke -- after a guest complained they were sitting at their table. Officials checked the guest list and found the Salahis weren't on it.
"Upon confirming that they did not belong, we escorted them out," said the spokesman, Lance Jones.
Jones said Bravo, which is filming the reality show "Real Housewives of Washington," requested access to the gala but was denied. The Salahis are filming for the show.
The couple showed up anyway with cameras, and were turned away at the door.
WTTG, the Fox affiliate, cited "sources" who claimed the two snuck in through a busboy entrance.
Michaele Salahi has posted photos from the gala on her Facebook page, showing her posing with Sen. Roland Burris (D-IL), Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) and others.
