Petraeus Socialite Jill Kelley Banned From Military Base

Jill Kelley is no longer welcome at MacDill AFB. The socialite who launched the David Petraeus sex scandal that's now also enveloped General John Allen, has been banned from the Tampa military base where she met both the four star military men, the Tampa Tribune is reporting.

"She did have base access but does not currently because of her involvement in an ongoing investigation," a military official told the Tribune.

The slam from her former best buddies in uniform comes on top of revelations of the Kelley family's dismal financial picture.

Regions Bank filed a foreclosure lawsuit against Jill and Scott Kelley in April 2010, claiming they failed to make payments on the mansion where they often entertained Gen. Petraeus, Gen. John Allen and other top military men. The bank demands repayment of $1.8 million in principal and interest on the mortgage and is foreclosing on the property.

And the couple's Kelley Land Holdings defaulted on a $2.1 million loan from Central Bank. It was secured by a commercial building in Tampa, which the bank eventually took back. Then there's FIA Card Services that sued Jill Kelley for defaulting on more than $25,000 in credit card debt.

Kelley had been functioning as an unpaid social liaison at MacDill, where Petraeus and Allen - his successor as the top military commander in Afghanistan. Kelley met both men in 2008 when they were based at MacDill with the U.S. Central Command.

As RadarOnline.com has been reporting, when Kelley began receiving anonymous threatening emails telling her to stay away from her friend, General-turned CIA Director David Petraeus, she turned to the FBI for help. The agency's investigation uncovered that the emails were sent by Paula Broadwell who they then accidentally discovered was having an affair with Petraeus!

Kelley may soon be told to stop using any kind of official title.

"There’s no such thing [as social liaison] one officer told The Washington Post. The made-up title appears to be a polite way of saying 'rich Tampa socialite who likes to hang with four-star generals.'"

And there's already an investigation into how Kelley qualified for her "Honorary Consul" license plate from the state of Florida.

just saw a poster say that Natalie had gotten a 600,000 loan from someone she is dating.

So 300,000 from Harrington that she was dating 600,000 from Boone (if I remember right) that she was dating.

Come on, there has to be more to it. Is Boone another Democratic operative?

A woman deep in debt, building illicit relationships with powerful married men. No problem there!

And as for those who say Petraeus wouldn’t be corrupted despite the affair. He and Allen both tried to intervent on behalf of her nutty sisters child custody case. Face it folks, for a mother to lose custody, thats no small feat.

One call from Ms Kelly, and the generals dance like a monkey on a stick. Starting small, a testimony here, a favor there, and 2 years down the road, a million deposited somewhere.
Auditors say as much as 18 billion simply vanished in Iraq. a compromised person with the checkbook, could easily divert a small amount of that and not feel bad in the slightest when they knew it was going to be wasted anyway.

That is how corruption grows. Small inconsequential compromises grow large.

“But if Kelley represents a potential security threat–as she might–then somebody had the responsibility to make sure she stopped waltzing on and off the base months ago.

I’m pretty sympathetic with the premise that FBI shouldn’t brief Congress in ongoing panty-sniffing investigations. But either Kelley is a threat, and the threat she represented was identified months ago. Or she’s not a threat, and they’re just suspending her access because she’s an embarrassment.”

“At one point, Kelley is said to have made known her desire to jump with the U.S. Special Operations Command Parachute Team, composed of paracommandos from the nation’s most elite units. She was told such jumps are a rare privilege reserved for VIPs. She is said to have replied, in essence, “I’m a VIP.”

By one knowledgeable account, Kelley was allowed to make the jump. She is not said to have made a particularly favorable impression with the team.”

You can get onto MacDill but that doesn’t go far. Everything sensitive is behind mulitple fences with armed guards. She could go to the officers club or the golf course

unpaid social liaison

Is that what they call it now?

Unless she's an employee of the base or a dependent, she has no business there. Period.

When do they start investigating General Abizaid? He opened the door for Jill Kelley at CentCom.

These women are social climbers. They have nothing to do with Benghazi. They do make for an interesting soap opera and may sell a few newspapers though.

“They have nothing to do with Benghazi”

Except, there were tens of thousands of emails, affairs being concealed (yes, that takes work) Generals writing letters for her nutty sisters case, etc.

Every minute those Generals spent on crap like this was a minute they weren’t doing their job. It’s not much different that someone sleeping on guard duty. A lot of men have died from substandard leadership in the time the Generals were living the “Real Housewives of Tampa” life.

I am thinking the same thing. I am curious if that 300,000 dollar payment
Made its way from Natalie to Jill. After all Jill is the common link between
Both scandals. Was Jill, the person Obama used to get the ball rolling on
Exposing Betrayus. Was the 300,000 dollars pay off for that. Did that money make it into Jill’s account. I’d like to know.

Thats true. This crap is where our Generals have their minds, then military defeats happen. Then the sisters soak up the press after.

They help cause it, then they halp ensure it will never be properly investigated. It’s a lose- lose.

Check with the Secret Service. I think some of them referred to that title for some female "socialites" in Latin America.

I wonder if the investigation will be by Navy Inspector General? They do things different than Army Inspector General. Might be DOD Inspector General.

What the hell is an “unpaid social liaison”, pray tell. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Its nano nookie at the officers mess? You have been there right? Those lovely ladies in their summer dresses and wide shade hats who aremarried to gurly men, who want a whiff of testosterone in uniform?

Now under Obama they have some form of “community worker” role. That and the outspoken gays in the military should be quite enough to sabatoge any protective role our military would otherwise have.

These women have been present throughout US history. I am reminded of the 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG) of the Chinese Air Force in 1941–1942, in which Pappy Boyington and General Claire Chennault ran across the intrepid Olga Sowers Greenlaw, wife of Harvey Greenlaw the AVGs XO, who later wrote a book about the Group.She is said to have had several romantic relationships among the command group and some of the pilots.

These women are US versions of camp followers, not prostitutes mind you, please do not get me wrong. Just a feminine socialite wild card, always historically present around the powerful figures of our military. From time to time they traduce command hierarchy and the laws of secrecy with their intimacy.

We will all now shrug and move along from Petraeus and we will forget that a great General was black mailed into towing the Obama line on the Benghazi debacle. Its enough to make one puke.

Petraeus needs to appear befor a Congressional Committee and shaken down extensively, so we can discover just what happened.
