Florida socialite in Petraeus scandal feels 'scared,' betrayed

Fri Nov 16, 2012 11:28pm EST

* In emails to mayor, Jill Kelley laments scandal's impact

* Emails portray Kelley as name-dropping party host

* They show her using connections to military leaders

By Colleen Jenkins


Nov 16 (Reuters) - Days after an extramarital affair forced CIA Director David Petraeus to resign, the Florida socialite who triggered the inquiry that took down Petraeus complained about "paparazzi" in front of her mansion and "people calling me with threats."

Jill Kelley, whose tip about harassing emails from the retired four-star general's mistress Paula Broadwell sparked the FBI probe that revealed the affair, complained to Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn in emails this week that she and her family were frightened by the worldwide attention they were receiving.

"I'm not sending my daughters to school today, and my husband slept at the hospital, because its just gotten too difficult to even pull out of our own driveway. And now, I have to deal with people calling me with threats," Kelley wrote in one of several emails the mayor released on Friday.

"I'm scared and cannot believe what my city - in which I have contributed so much of my love, time, money and leadership - has now done to me and my innocent family," she said.

1. Woman you lived for this moment

All your life you hoped to become a star. Now you are so shut up. Oh while you're at it pay a bill or go look for work. I just hope no one offers you a stupid book deal so you really will be gone forever shortly.

7. Oy, Bet She Regrets Calling Her FBI Friend

I feel bad for her, especially her kids and hubby - people are crazy and the MSM is fucked up to sit there 24/7.
It's like being in a reality TV show with out getting paid.

10. "Oy, Bet She Regrets Calling Her FBI Friend"

I knew she regretted it the instant I saw that photo of him with the dummies.
