The scandal involving General Petraeus, his mistress (Paula Broadwell), and Jill Kelley of Tampa seems to keep developing more layers every day. Obviously it is getting a lot of news coverage here and it doesn’t look to die down any time soon.
As I rode my bike on Bayshore yesterday I saw all of the news trucks parked around the Kelley’s house. Reporters and camerapeople are just standing around all day waiting to get a shot of someone leaving or entering. I know stars deal with that all the time but we’re not used to seeing that kind of thing around here. I can’t imagine what it must be like to be under that kind of scrutiny.
Today I read that the Kelleys ran a questionable cancer charity, that Police calls to Jill Kelley's mansion include sister's pornography, abuse and stalking claims and that General John Allen, with whom Kelley shared more than 200 emails, some of which contained flirtatious content, could lose his job over it.
Wow, that is a serious can of worms that got opened. I have a feeling Jill Kelley might be regretting that she forwarded Paula Broadwell’s email to that FBI Agent right about now. Eek.
The good news is that despite stepping down from his role as CIA Director due to the scandal, General Petraeus will still be testifying before Congress about the Benghazi attacks that led to the death of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.
Do you think General Allen will lose his job, too? Do you care about this or think it is a distraction?
