NEW: RI (Democrat) Lobbyist Gave $300,000 Loan to Sister of Jill Kelley

A prominent Rhode Island lobbyist and Democratic fundraiser gave a $300,000 personal loan to the twin sister of Jill Kelley, the woman tied to the love affair that ended CIA Director David Petraeus’ career, court documents show.

Bankruptcy records filed by Natalie Khawam last April list Gerald Harrington, the founder of the Capitol City Group, as an unsecured creditor on the loan. Khawam owes nearly $4 million in total.

The loan was first reported by the New York Post.

A message left at Harrington’s Providence law firm was not immediately returned.

The Post is reporting that both Patraeus and General John Allen “intervened” in a child custody battle that involved Khawam. The Post also claims Khawam namedropped Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and Massachusetts Senator John Kerry in court documents. Harrington has contributed to both Whitehouse and Kerry.

There are just too many coincidences in this story. And the news was released right after the election. And the Benghazi testimony is coming up. Something is very wrong with the whole story.

Kennedy urged to ‘win back’ Senate - Stepsons express concern - She has ‘The best Rolodex’ - Seat a top priority
Cape Cod Times (Hyannis, MA) - Monday, August 16, 2010
Author: MARY ANN AKERS and PHILIP RUCKER

EXCERPT

Retaking the seat held by Edward Kennedy from 1962 until his death — and previously by his brother, the late President John F. Kennedy — will be a top priority for Democrats in 2012. But despite the state’s liberal leanings, winning back the seat looks to be a challenge. Brown, who has distanced himself from the GOP on some high-profile issues, is now seen as one the most popular politicians in Massachusetts.

Gerry Harrington, a Kennedy family friend and Washington consultant with ties to Boston, said he thinks it will take a “Herculean effort” to defeat Brown.

Interesting. I don’t know hat to make of it yet, but I am sure it was some
kind of payoff that ended up in Jill Kelly’s account.

Jill Kelly is the only common thread on both Betrayus And Allen.

Could it be once they used Betrayus to spout the video lies, they needed
a discredited fall guy for Benghizi, Jill Kelly gets the ball rolling .

And look who Natalie Khawam's ex-husband is

Web Link

Wolfe served as Manager of the Private Sector Development Office of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad, Iraq. In this capacity he was directly responsible for implementing a wide range of initiatives to attract foreign direct investment and provide financing to Iraqi companies. During this time, Wolfe worked extensively on the ground with senior Iraqi and Kurdish officials, and with the Ministries of Finance, Trade and Oil.

U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton will bring her presidential campaign to Rhode Island on Sept. 27 with a fund-raising event in East Greenwich.

The New York Democrat and former first lady will appear at a luncheon at the home of Democratic Party activists Mark and Susan Weiner. Lobbyist Gerry Harrington is chairman of the event. Harrington was a top fund-raiser for John Kerry’s unsuccessful 2004 presidential campaign.

it seems that this wasn’t the first time this has happened, and these women have had an ongoing operation to bed powerful military men. Whether this is a twisted hobby, or if they’ve been put up to this by powerful interests (for blackmail purposes), remains to be seen.

Sounds like: Lobbyist paid Natalie to pay Jill to gain info from Patreus so Lobbyist would have money-making intel for his Client. And Jack came down with $2.50. (old joke ref).

I also thought it odd that they at some point came from Lebanon [no?] and get started in Tampa. They buy a $1.5 million dollar home.

Now, a $1.5 million dollar home in L.A. is nothing to brag about, but their Tampa home is rather substantial.

But starting out, that’s a stretch and they now up to their armpits in foreclosures!

Okay, so now it is time to follow the money trail. We are beginning to see who funds these Lebanese twins. Now to figure out why.

Supposedly, mom and dad owned a small restaurant. However, all the kids appeared to be well educated and well connected...at least two of them are Attorneys, including one of the twins.

Jill Kelley and hubby are bankrupt. Owned a lot of Real Estate and he is a practicing doctor...house is being foreclosed and big notes are coming due. Natalie filed for bankruptcy and then filed a law suit against a high profile Attorney.

Petraeus and Allen wrote letters of support for Natalie in a child custody case and so forth....

Who is rallying the troops for these people and why? I don’t mean to be cruel; but, these women are not that attractive. How did they move into the big league.

Sadly, we can’t post a Huff Po link but they have an article on Huff Po right now about Jill, her sister and husband running a “questionable” cancer charity out of the Tampa house which was a tax deduction.

After all was said and done, there was NO chartible work, only parties and they ran the charity into the ground.

Like a lot of Amurricans, and the federal government, she was living far beyond her income.
Likely with a load of maxxed out credit cards and helocs on houses with negative equity.

The parents came from Lebanon and ran a restaurant in Philly.
The twins were born in the US.
Jill’s maiden name is actually Gilberte Khawam.

“I’ve been wondering how she attained Rolex watches, furs, diamond ring, etc., allegedly unreported in bankruptcy and divorce filings.”

It is interesting how that happens. We have seen the same stuff out here. Couples in major bankruptcy and non payment on multi million $ homes.

Often the guys get hammered and their wives still have Rolex’s, furs, Mercs or Audis and several of the multi thousand $ bags/purses or whatever they are called.

One of these gals was whining about how she was going hungry. One of our sons told her to sell her two Rolexs on EBay,and she could feed herself and a few families in need for a couple of years. Then, he told her to sell her big Mercedes and to stop boring him/us.

I found it interesting that in this article, her brother talks about how “Jill was a born giver, who early on channeled her charitable efforts into political fundraising and later to the military.”

Anyone want to guess what party she did her fundraising for? (No, the article doesn’t say.)

Blast from the past...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_Russia_%E2%80%93_United_States_spy_swap

Vladimir and Lidiya Guryev (Richard and Cynthia Murphy)

Lidiya Guryev had attended school in the United States receiving two undergraduate degrees from New York University and an MBA from Columbia Business School.[72] In 2009, Cynthia Murphy developed contacts in New York City financial circles as a means to obtain details about the global gold market.

[73] Lidiya had been trying to cultivate a relationship with Alan Patricof, a venture capitalist who co-chaired Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential bid, with her handlers telling her to “to try to build up little by little relations”.[74] Lidiya Guriyev was Vice president of Morea Financial Services in New York.[67]

Something to think about...
