Looking more and more like Petraeus may have been on the left all along we just didn't know.That alone can explain a lot. This story is a bit convoluted. At first I heard that petraeus broke off the affair when he joined cia. Than later I heard he kept on e-mailing the woman--huge numbers of e mails.Hard to sort it all out.
She is the assistant Director for the Office of Servicemember Affairs
“At the CFPB, Holly Petraeus conducts outreach with military families, and has been an important figure in its crackdowns on abusive lending and illegal foreclosures that banks have performed against military families in recent years. Banks are legally barred from foreclosing on the homes of active-duty military personnel, but had ignored the rule in recent years, until the CFPB began monitoring the abuses.
Holly Petraeus also flagged banking problems for military families who had been ordered by the armed services to relocate. In cases where families were having trouble paying their mortgage, banks were erroneously encouraging homeowners to miss payments — a situation which led to needless foreclosures. In many other cases, banks were simply failing to respond to homeowner inquiries or work out alternative payment options for families who had to move for their military jobs. Holly Petraeus helped craft new regulatory guidance cracking down on such abuses.”
I do believe he has referred to himself as a ‘Rockefeller Republican’, which should have been all the hint anyone would need.
