Sorry, Jill Kelley, you probably don’t have ‘diplomatic inviolability’

When U.S. Central Command named Kelley an “honorary ambassador” last year to thank her for her time, it appears to have been wholly symbolic, carrying no official responsibilities or rights. But Kelley has been known to drop the “honorary” from that title, and appeared to represent herself as a formal diplomatic officer in a recent 911 call to Tampa police. Here’s the Associated Press report on the call (emphasis mine):

In the phone call to authorities, Jill Kelley, a party hostess and unofficial social liaison for leaders of the U.S. military’s Central Command in Tampa, cited her status as an honorary consul general while complaining about news vans that had descended on her two-story brick home overlooking Tampa Bay.

“You know, I don’t know if by any chance, because I’m an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property. I don’t know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well,” she told the 911 dispatcher Monday.


Alas, Kelley almost certainly does not have diplomatic “inviolability” or right to “protection,” and not just for the most obvious reason that she is not an actual diplomat. The immunity only applies to a country’s official diplomatic representatives abroad, and, alas, Tampa is still not considered a foreign country.

1. Whatever "title" MacDill bestowed on her was symbolic...

Like getting the "keys to the city". In her case it was a base pass.
OTOH, the Honorary Counsel for South Korea is a legitimate position. Basically its like being a business agent. However, there is no diplomatic immunity or protection associated with Honorary Counsels. Since she could no longer name-drop, out of desparation she's trying to invoke status she doesn't have. IOW, she's full of bullshit.

2. And by the way, her base pass has just been revoked.

Even if she gets a book deal her creditors would be standing in line to get paid.

3. And I think S Korea is reviewing her Honorary Counselate.

All she's gonna have left is DWTS and celebrity wrestling match with Tonya Harding.
