In 911 calls, Kelley tried to invoke diplomatic immunity

Source: NBC News

Audiotapes of several 911 calls placed by Florida socialite Jill Kelley as the media descended on her Tampa home show she complained about what she considered trespassing on her property and attempted to invoke diplomatic-type privileges.

“I am an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability,” Kelley told a 911 dispatcher. “They should not be able to cross my property. I don’t know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well?”

A South Korean official confirmed to NBC News that Kelley is an honorary consul for South Korea, but said she has no diplomatic immunity. He said Kelley assists the consulate based in Atlanta on occasion with things like passports and visas but is not an employee.

The U.S. State Department said Kelley has no formal affiliation with that U.S. agency.

“I can assure you that she does not work for the State Department and has no formal affiliation with the State Department,” State Department Spokesman Mark Toner said.

2. I thought she was an Unpaid Social Liaison?

 

Whatever the heck that is. So now she is an honorary consul general with diplomatic immunity and inviolability? Next she will be the almighty all divine queen of the universe

10. I don't think so, but since you mentioned it,,,



M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E sounds very appropriate song at this time, don't you think.

I never got the Mouseketeer honor, but I did get on Foreman Scotty's show. Even got the ride on the horse and the gold coin. (Although I now suspect he was an early Wall Street Mortgage Banker, 'cause the stupid coin was a fake and the horse was a stick pony.<G>

7. Well, I'm an Honorary Red Ryder Ranger, and authorized to "shoot my eye out". . .

but I rarely invoke "all the honors and privileges pertaining thereto" unless sitting before the radio on a Saturday evening.

16. Yeah, but do you have the seecret decoder ring?

You're not a for-real Honorary Ranger without the secret decoder ring.

17. Unfortunately, lost that in a tragic Ovaltine kerfuffle. . .

I am still authorized to shoot my eye out, however. Just won't get any honors or privileges for my efforts, I guess.

<Sigh>

11. More on Kelley

That's two words: "more on." Maybe it ought to be one. Someone at DU has probably already linked to this.

13. While we are talking about Kelly, what about that FBI agent?

who mailed her a shirtless photo and who, once was removed, "leaked" the information to a Republican congressman who later passed it to Cantor?

18. Saw this on NBC last night

They showed a picture of her car with vanity plates that say "Honorary Consul General". When I was a kid I was made an honorary airline pilot but I don't think Delta will let me into the cockpit anytime soon.

20. I remember that!

As a kid I had honorary "wings" from Delta, American, United, Eastern (had a million of those) and USAir...Those wings should have given me authorization to fly the aircraft!
