The man best known for crashing a state dinner at the White House is launching another run for public office.

Tareq Salahi announced today that he will seek the Republican nomination for retiring Rep. Frank Wolf’s seat in Virginia’s 10th District.

Salahi previously ran in the Virginia gubernatorial election in 2013, staging a write-in campaign after he failed to win the Republican candidacy and missed the filing deadline to run as an independent.

Salahi shot to infamy in 2009 when he and his then-wife Michaele Salahi crashed a White House state dinner for which they didn’t have an invitation while filming the Bravo TV show “The Real Housewives of D.C.”

The couple even posted photos on their Facebook page of them posing with the likes of Vice President Joe Biden and former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
