salahis white house getty White House gate crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi subpoenaedThe House Homeland Security Committee, which oversees the Secret Service, has voted to subpoena Tareq and Michaele Salahi

]]>New York Times, the committee voted 26 to 3 in favor of subpoenaing Tareq Salahi and 27 to 2 in favor of subpoenaing his wife Michaele. They must appear in court on Jan. 20. Desiree Rogers, the White House social secretary, was rejected for a subpoena, 17 to 12. Rep. Peter King plans to hold a closed-door session with her following the testimony of the Salahis because he feels that she is “an absolutely essential component” of the investigation. We’re wondering two things: 1. Why isn’t Michele Jones, the woman with whom Tareq Salahi was exchanging emails about the State dinner, also being subpoenaed? 2. Why did Rep. Mike Rogers, a Republican from Alabama, switch his vote? Why subpoena Mr. Salahi and not Mrs. Salahi? Is this one of those women-as-helpless-appendages-of-men things?
