Fake congressman gets backstage at Obama event

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) October 3, 2014

From Bloomberg News:

An unidentified man posing as a member of Congress made it into a secure area backstage at President Barack Obama’s appearance at a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation awards dinner in Washington Sept. 27, according to a White House official.

The man entered the backstage area during or just after Obama’s speech at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center as members of Congress gathered there to have their pictures taken with the president, said the official, who asked for anonymity to discuss the incident, which has not previously been made public.


The man was reportedly screened for weapons, but was still allowed backstage with the Obamas.
