Rep. Issa crashed a White House party, too

Despite the outcry surrounding last week's security breach at the state dinner, this isn't the first time an uninvited guest has crossed the White House threshold: just ask Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.).

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Issa said that in 1995, long before he was elected to Congress, he was admitted to a reception on the South Lawn of the White House, despite the fact that "my name wasn't on a slip."

Secret Service agents "rejected" him at first, although he insists that he was meant to be on the list.

Issa (pictured at a charity event last year) decided to see if he could slip by unnoticed in a big group. "I walked through with what I recall was the Xerox group," he recounted. "We just came in en masse."
