Keeping Up With The Salahis
Correspondent: Bernard Goldberg
Producer: Nick Dolin
Michaele and Tareq Salahi burst into the national spotlight last November when they were investigated for "crashing" President Obama's first state dinner at the White House. While the couple remains adamant that they did nothing wrong, their 15 minutes of fame and controversy has endured. Among their many high-profile ventures is an annual charity polo event, "America's Polo Cup," which is held at the National Mall in D.C. and is marketed as a fundraiser for charitable causes. However, the event has caught the eye of state regulators in Virginia who are reviewing the couple's fundraising practices. Correspondent Bernard Goldberg travels to the nation's capital in this Real Sports/Sports Illustrated collaboration to meet the Salahis, and find out why a number of people who helped the couple put on their annual polo event are now saying the Salahis didn't hold up their end of the deal.
