Maybe this is a dumb question. What is their crime?

ACTUALLY IT DEPENDS ON HOW YOU DEFINE CRIME? OR DOES IT? I CAN'T REMEMBER WITH THIS ADMINISTRATION...

Breitbart discovered that the felon, Robert Creamer, who wrote the script that White House is following on health care, was in attendance that same night. The “party crashers” are a misdirection.

I think I read that it was criminal trespassing; the reason people are concerned is that there are photos of BHO with this couple from 2005. The husband founded some type of charity for the “palestinians,” and each year has some polo event.

That would be my defense: I showed up and they let me in. If I wasn’t welcome, they were free to make me leave.

This reminds me of the time that my wife and I “crashed” a corporate party near Idaho Falls, Idaho. We were west of town when I saw the Budweiser brewery on the edge of town. Since Idaho Falls was our destination and we had nothing to do for a few hours, we decided to drive over and check out the brewery. We thought maybe we could get a tour or check out the gift shop or something. When we drove up, there was a party right in front of the place. The Budweiser Clydesdales were there and it was a big to-do. We pulled into the parking lot saying to each other, “We better just turn around and get out of here, we’ll try another day.”

Pulling into the parking lot, some kid who looked about 16 pointed us to a parking spot. I said to my wife, “Let’s see if we can see the Clydesdales for a minute, then let’s take off.” We walked right up to the party with another young kid telling us that “the Clydesdales are right over there, please no smoking and don’t do anything to startle the horses. Food and drink is over there, have a great time and welcome.” Nobody asked us for anything. That’s how most things are in life: if you act like you know what you’re doing and act like you’re supposed to be there, people don’t usually question anything.

Since we really weren’t supposed to be there, we didn’t eat their food or partake in any drinks. We just checked out the Clydesdales for about 10 minutes, then left. It was pretty cool.

What laws were my wife and I breaking, if any? To be cited for trespassing, I think you have to be asked to leave and warned by the cops not to come back (varies from state to state). But the talk of what laws the White House crashers violated is probably moot. If the White House wants you prosecuted, you’re gonna get prosecuted. I’ll bet this is something where your lawyer haggles with the prosecutor for a plea bargain that, if you’re smart, you’ll take it and cut your losses.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that for the Budweiser party that we quasi-crashed, it probably helped that I was wearing Dockers, a golf-style shirt with a collar, and leather shoes that weren’t real dressy but they weren’t tennis shoes, either. My wife was dressed about the same. We were dressed business-casual like everybody else there, I’m sure that helped a lot. If we looked like bumpkins or it was black-tie formal, we probably would’ve been told to hit the road.
