Florida socialite in Petraeus scandal feels 'scared'
WASHINGTON (REUTERS) - Days after an extramarital affair forced United States CIA Director David Petraeus to resign, the Florida socialite who triggered the inquiry that took down Gen Petraeus complained about"paparazzi" in front of her mansion and "people calling me with threats."
Ms Jill Kelley, whose tip about harassing e-mails from the retired four-star general's mistress Ms Paula Broadwell sparked the FBI probe that revealed the affair, complained to Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn in e-mails 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," Ms Kelley wrote in one of several e-mails 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.
