A White House official says the Virginia couple who attended a state dinner without an invitation met President Barack Obama in the receiving line.
Michaele and Tareq Salahi were admitted into Tuesday's dinner for India's visiting prime minister although they were not on the official guest list of more than 300 people. It had been unclear how close they may have gotten to Obama.
A White House official said Friday that the couple met Obama in the receiving line.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of an ongoing Secret Service investigation into how the couple slipped through its usually tight security.
