Va. launches probe into business entity run by Salahis
Tareq Salahi is reportedly a member of the American Task Force on Palestine

The state of Virginia today began a formal investigation into the America's Polo Cup, the business entity run by Michaele and Tareq Salahi that the couple says raises funds for their charitable organization.

"The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) launched an investigation into the fund-raising practices of America's Polo Cup as they relate to the Virginia Solicitation of Contributions Law. Because this is an active investigation, VDACS cannot comment further on any of aspects of the investigation."

The America's Polo Cup, a gala held each spring since 2007, is billed by the Salahis as the "world's most prestigious and largest . . . charity polo event," in promotional materials. The couple tells sponsors that the posh event gives its proceeds to Journey for the Cure, a federally approved nonprofit 501(c)(3) foundation.
