Latest: Congress Calls for White House Party Crashers to Testify

Congress on Monday called for an aspiring reality TV show couple to testify and explain how they successfully crashed a private White House dinner party last Tuesday night, according to a new report.

CNN reports that House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson is asking for both the couple and the head of the Secret Service, Mark Sullivan, to testify at a hearing on Thursday about the breakdown in security that ultimately allowed the couple to meet President Barack Obama without being on the party's guest list.

"This is a time for answers, recognition of security deficiencies past and present, and remedies to ensure the strength of the Secret Service and the safety of those under its protection," Thompson said in a statement to CNN. "This is not the time for political games or scapegoating to distract our attention from the careful oversight we must apply to the Secret Service and its mission. My confidence in the management of the Secret Service hangs in the balance."
