They finally score an actual invitation, and then go and turn it down.

Tareq and Michaele Salahi, the couple who infamously got past the Secret Service to crash President Barack Obama's first White House State Dinner, released a statement outlining all the ways they have been cooperating with the government's investigation into the matter. 

But as for that hearing before the House Committee on Homeland Security on Thursday...well, they aren't coming to that.

"They therefore respectfully decline to testify," reads the statement from the couple, who have already endured Matt Lauer's grilling on Today earlier this week.

Which is almost like testifying before Congress, right? (Or maybe we're thinking of The View.)

In any case, the couple assert that they will not be making an appearance because no laws were broken, the invitation protocol was "either deficient or mismanaged" and "there were honest misunderstandings and mistakes made by all parties involved."

Or maybe they have another engagement to crash Thursday?


Enough. Let's go hang with some Sneaky Bachelors.
