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.

"Theres 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.
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?

That’s OK, she probably now has a lifetime pass to the Bill Clinton Presidential Massage Parlor.

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 threatas she mightthen somebody had the responsibility to make sure she stopped waltzing on and off the base months ago.
Im pretty sympathetic with the premise that FBI shouldnt brief Congress in ongoing panty-sniffing investigations. But either Kelley is a threat, and the threat she represented was identified months ago. Or shes not a threat, and theyre just suspending her access because shes 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 nations most elite units. She was told such jumps are a rare privilege reserved for VIPs. She is said to have replied, in essence, Im 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.”
MacDill program lets civilians like Jill Kelley on base without escort
Bump for later.
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
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.
Can you imagine what a hypothetical Gilbert & Sullivan operetta about this would look like?
Check out my latest thread about calling the police because she was made to watch underage porn by her husband.
“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.
They sure are taking attention from the press.
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.
Maybe E-11 ?
Jill loaned 800,000 to Natalie listed in Natalie’s bankruptcy filing.
Parents filed for bankruptcy in 1990
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.
She is a “camp follower”
It’s all toooooooll confusing. Multiple freak sideshows.
Check with the Secret Service. I think some of them referred to that title for some female "socialites" in Latin America.
“generals dance like a monkey on a stick”
To be precise, I think she did the dancing on the generals stick
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 19411942, 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.
Newspeak for camp follower.
I agree. No mercy. If you let scum like that into your house, expect smelly footprints. Looks like Broadwell might have checked out the twins, she evidently knew what they were.
Tramps and thieves.
Yep, this is gonna beat the Nixon in China opera!
I am anxiously awaiting the center spread of the twins in the Christmas issue of Penthouse magazine. (This has been so much fun!)
Three little maids from base, are we.
I am the very model of a modern social liaison.
Natalie’s ex husband has an interesting father
Is that what the young people are calling it these days?
Thank you all for your responses. I have had quite an education from the reading of them. I certainly had a sheltered upbringing.
