Sheriff Speaks Out on Salahi Abduction

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office just issued the below release in response to claims that Washington’s most exquisite beauty, Michaele Salahi, has been kidnapped and is being held against her will:

“The Warren County Sheriff’s Office received a call from Mr. Tareq Salahi on Tuesday evening September 13, 2011 at 11:55 p.m.  Mr. Salahi advised us that he last heard from his wife about 6 hours ago.  He was concerned because she had contacted him from an Oregon area code and she was supposed to be back in Northern Virginia today.

Deputy Mike Glavis subsequently spoke with Mrs. Salahi by telephone a few moments later.   Deputy Glavis was able to identify Mrs. Salahi by having previous conversations with her in the past.  She seemed calm, was engaged in conversation, and assured the deputy that she had left the residence with a good friend and was where she wanted to be. Mrs. Salahi advised that she did not want Mr. Salahi to know where she was.

Mrs. Salahi advised Deputy Glavis that she was very sorry that the Sheriff’s Office had to be involved, but she did not want to be home right now.

Deputy Glavis made contact with Mr. Salahi and advised him that he had spoken with Mrs. Salahi and told him that she was fine.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI are currently working together in an attempt to make additional contact with Mrs. Salahi to assure her well being.  We have been in contact with her friends and family.”

Michaele Salahi: Kidnapped?

Amber Platinum Alert: Michaele Salahi has been kidnapped!  Or so says her fame-whoring, pathological husband Tareq Salahi.  Although the ‘Real Housewife of DC’ has been in touch with both her hubby and local law enforcement, Tareq believes she’s being held against her will and was FORCED to make calls confirming her safety.  According to TMZ, Michaele left to get her hair did with a stolen credit card yesterday but never showed for her appointment and has been missing since.

As we understand it, WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger is Tareq’s top suspect.  Okay, that’s not true but we wish it was.

 

From TMZ:

Tareq has issued a statement saying, “We are reaching to the public pleaing [sic] desperately for your help.

It is our belief as of last night, that Michaele Salahi may have been kidnapped or abducted and being held under duress and forced to tell persons, including authorities she is okay.

We are asking the public to please be on the look out for her, and if found please contact the authorities and please approach her and contact the authorities to intervene and that she may be forced to say she is okay, when in fact she is not and being held under possible abduction.

The Salahi family can be reached at 540-635-9933.”

We’re fairly certain Tareq’s kidnapping claims are bogus because a) he’s a no-talent assclown who will do anything to see his name in a headline b) any kidnapper would be rendered helpless if Michaele simply broke out her hot moves while singing her hit single “Bump It.” c) we’re not that lucky.

With nominees like John Edwards, the Salahis, Tiger Woods, Blago and David Letterman, there really are no wrong answers. To cast your vote for the “Bernies,” visit ABCNews.com.

House Cmte on Homeland Security Prepared to Subpoena Salahis

Presidential party crashers, Tareq and Michaele Salahi will be issued subpoenas should the couple no-show for their scheduled appearance before the Committee on Homeland Security tomorrow. (Which is what we’re hearing they’re planning on doing.)

Statement from Chairman Bennie G. Thompson:

“Late this evening, I was informed by the Salahis’ counsel, that their clients, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, may not appear before the Committee tomorrow as requested. The Salahis’ testimony is important to explain how a couple circumvented layers of security at the White House on the evening of a State Dinner without causing alarm. The Committee on Homeland Security must understand the full scope of what went so terribly wrong on Tuesday night to ensure that security gaps are sealed. This can only be achieved by hearing both sides of the matter. If the Salahis are absent from tomorrow’s hearing, the Committee is prepared to move forward with subpoenas to compel their appearance.”

Washington’s Own “Spencer & Heidi” Hit State Dinner

WaPo‘s Reliable Source reports that Tareq and Michaele Salahi, Washington’s version of Spencer and Heidi Pratt attended last night’s State Dinner.

It remains a mystery as to how or why the fame-seeking couple, slated to appear in the “Real Housewives of DC,” made it into the White House (they weren’t on the official list) but Michaele’s “public figure” profile on Facebook had this to say:

Honored to have attended the state dinner at the White House in honor of India with President Obama and our First Lady. INDIA & the USA will challenege each other for the first time on the DC National Mall in June 2010 in what will be another proud and historic moment. XO MICHAELE

While I remain totally puzzled by their attendance, I am certain of one thing – they need a combined name a la Spencer and Heidi’s “Speidi” ASAP. Please submit your ideas!
