Two senators say authorities ought to pursue criminal charges against the Virginia couple who crashed last week's state dinner at the White House.

Democrat Evan Bayh of Indiana and Republican Jon Kyl of Arizona say such behavior should be strongly discouraged.

Authorities say Michaele (mih-KEL') and Tareq Salahi (TAH'-rehk sah-LAH'-hee) were allowed into the White House dinner Tuesday night even though they were not on the guest list. The Secret Service has apologized for the breakdown in security, and an investigation into possible criminal behavior is ongoing.

Bayh says it's no laughing matter that two people could get so close to President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden without being cleared.

Bayh and Kyl appeared on "Fox News Sunday."
