RICHMOND, Va. -- Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's office says officials have reached a settlement with a charity run by White House party crasher Tareq Salahi for allegedly making false statements, submitting inaccurate financial statements and soliciting donations without being registered with the state.

The settlement with the Journey for the Cure Foundation and Salahi follows an investigation by the state Office of Consumer Affairs. Under the settlement, the charity must pay $32,500 in civil penalties and attorney fees. Salahi also must pay $2,500 in penalties.

Salahi and his wife, Michaele, gained notoriety in 2009 when they crashed a White House state dinner. Earlier this month, Tareq Salahi filed a $50 million lawsuit against his wife claiming she had an affair with Journey guitarist Neil Schon in an attempt to make money for herself and the band at his expense.
