Third State Dinner ‘Gate-Crasher’ Carlos Allen Claims He Was Invited

AJ Contributor

A third man alleged to have crashed the White House State Dinner in November now says he was invited to the party — days after repeatedly denying that he was ever there.

Carlos Allen, first identified by the Washington Post and confirmed to ABC News by government sources, is the third suspect under investigation by the U.S. Secret Service for attending the Nov. 24 gala without an invitation.
