Third Party Crasher is Facebook Friend to Many

image6056206x.jpg

Famous-for-D.C. types around town may want to check out the de-friending button on their Facebook pages.

It turns out a variety of people are friends with Third Party Crasher Extraordinaire Carlos Allen, including some of the very people who will be covering them for their respective news outlets. Allen’s Facebook Friends include: ABC’s Jake Tapper, GOP lobbyist Juleanna Glover, Miami local news anchor and former NBC White House Correspondent Kevin Corke, and D.C. socialites Pamela Sorensen and Tara De Nichols.

So far, Tapper has not covered him directly, but last night, he tweeted: “unlike w/Salahis, US Secret Service not accepting blame for 3rd gate-crasher, blaming State Department.”

Will they de-friend Allen? Time will tell.

>Update:”Huh. Didn’t know that,” wrote Tapper in an e-mail. “I have a pretty open-door policy for my ABC News Facebook page. I don’t really have the time to conduct background checks.”
