Jill Kelley took multiple flights at taxpayer expense

4:09 PM, Nov 19, 2012

Tampa, Florida -- Not only did Jill Kelley have MacDill's top brass over at her house, but 10 News has learned she also took multiple flights on military aircraft at taxpayer expense.

In at least one instance, Kelley flew to the nation's capital with General John Allen, the commander of US forces in Afghanistan.

...10 News has made numerous requests for flight records to see just how many times Kelley has flown on government-owned planes, but so far the Pentagon says it has not been able to track down the answer.

It's also possible officials simply don't want to release that information or that they didn't keep track of who was flying with some of the country's top military leaders....

1. FYI

So, now, she is found to be flying around with Allen, too? Not just partying on the ground at her house?

2. Wouldn't surprise me if this is quite common among lobbyists working projects DOD wants.

8. It's absolutely common in every industry. Ken Lay often had high-priced call girls fly to Houston

for his special parties, and some of those parties included the dictatortot before he was governor. Coke and call girls.

4. They are going at it the wrong way--they need to FOIA the Invitational Travel Orders and pull the

string that way.

9. Wow

I heard a statement on the tube last week (sorry don''t remember the source) that General Allen's interactions with Kelly were strictly web-based, that they had "never been in the same room". Now it looks like they were on the same government plane. I guess a plane isn't a room, but this story keeps getting more interesting.

11. also who really paid for all those parties at her house?

She's in debt and flat broke and pay for all those parties at her house? it doesn't make sense.
I am wondering if taxpayers somehow paid for those events, too.
