  • He is serious, and don't call him Shirley.
  • The media is fanning this stupid scandal to distract us from bigger problems.

    Why do people keep paying attention?

    Are most of us dumb as shiat, or something?

    Or just trained so that when Big Media says "jump," we say "how high?"

    What's the point of rhetorical questions?
  • Sad Jill Kelley lost her Honorary Consult to Korea, I figured she'd be the full ambassador by now when it comes to sucking off men in power.
  • I don't understand why Subby calls this woman an attention whore. Based on what I have read, she wasn't looking for any attention, but has had her privacy violated by the FBI and US Attorney's office in what is beginning to look like a Republican hit job on Petraeus. The media is playing this to the hilt because they know that if their is anything that prurient Americans love more than mingling dicks and pussies, it's reading about mingling dicks and pussies.
  • I miss the good ole disappear that chick times of the pre clinton era
  • Fta... "she is a prolific emailer."

    I find that irresistible in a woman, especially if she has ties to the Koreans.

    /hot!
  • She'd make more money suing her plastic surgeon, face is an epic fail
  • Why did subby put the word "attention" in the headline?
  • yeah good on him.

    we can't have people leaking stuff for their own political purposes. It ain't legal, and by god, it aint damn right.
  • I have to say, this is one of the first major "scandals" I just don't completely understand. I have the sequence of events like this:

    1) Petraeus gets caught in an affair
    2) Something involving other 4-star generals, socialites, their twin sister, and a shirtless FBI agent
    3) Benghazi?
    4) Profit..for someone?


    You know what, just don't explain it to me. I'll just live in blissful ignorance.
  • I don't see how she is in the scandal all that much. It sounds like she wrote him some naughty e-mails every now and again, but didn't do much beyond that. Did I miss something?
  • I saw that attorney yesterday. He is an incredibly smart guy (he's my professor); things like this are strategic decisions. Fact of the matter is that prosecutors leak for a number of different reasons, and he's entirely legally correct to say that if the government leaks for political purposes, her rights have been violated.
  • If she hadn't called the FBI to investigate some silly email she wouldn't be in this mess.
  • The investigation has narrowed down to 60 emails between Kelley and the general. Seems the lawyer is attempting to deflect attention from his attention seeking client. Maybe her attempt to sell US government contracts was illegal?

    During the Republican National Convention, Kelley touted her connection with Petraeus and wanted a 2 percent commission for a no-bid coal deal with South Korea, said Adam Victor, president of TransGas Development Systems. Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kyou-hyun weighed in Monday: "It's not suitable to the status of honorary consul that [she] sought to be involved in commercial projects and peddle influence."
  • Just get her a Real Housewives deal and be done with it please.

    "Socialites", yuck.

    Greasy.

    Yep. She knows the circles that she operates in, and she knows that these circles receive a lot of very deserved public scrutiny. If she didn't want to be personally scrutinized then she shouldn't have brought attention to herself, especially when it looks like she's been abusing this questionable honorary foreign consul status...

    /is annoyed with people who *think* they have power and choose to wield it
    //see Mark Twain's commentary on school boards, etc...

    RTFA. He sent the government a letter warning them not to break the law by leaking information to the media. Which happens quite a lot.
  • please: "Socialites", yuck.


    I read that as "Socialitis" and wondered if there was some organizatiion working on a cure I could donate to

    She is the one that called the shirtless FBI guy and basically led to the affair becoming public.

    Maybe that's how you interpret it, but this article gives a better summary. Kelley's attorneys held a press conference to attack a New York businessman who accused Kelley of incompetence in her work trying to set up a deal he was negotiating with South Korean companies and an attorney who accused her of name-dropping and of being a social climber.

    Kelley lost her appointment as an honorary consul for the South Korean government, which she had gotten because of her friendship with Petraeus. The Koreans said she had misused the title in her personal business dealing

    Korean government, not US government. The possible law-breaking here looks like Jill Kelley's alleged influence peddling.

    To appear smarter than everybody else.
