TAMPA Soon after she was appointed honorary consul to South Korea, Jill Kelley of Tampa went to work trying to establish a relationship between that country and the University of South Florida's medical school.
"I was nominated for this diplomatic appointment, for the purpose to facilitate new agreements in the USA with my contacts," Kelley wrote in a Sept. 7 email to USF medical school dean Stephen Klasko. "I have a unique opportunity to propose bids because of my relationship with the top executive branch of Korea, and in addition, the President of the Free Trade Act is my direct contact.
"With that said, I wanted to ask you, first, if you had any interest in a medical, pharmaceutical or research exchange between USF and Korea?"
Two days after she sent her email to Klasko, he sent her a note of congratulations on her appointment. He told her the university has "significant relationships" with Korea and suggested she start with a visit to USF's training and simulation center, called CAMLS, in downtown Tampa.
He also suggested she get in touch with John Sinnott, an associate dean who is in charge of USF's international efforts.
Kelley said in a return email that she'd do just that once she returned from a trip to Hawaii, where she was with the Korean delegation for her ceremonial appointment.
Sinnott wrote Kelley on Sept. 11 saying that the school was interested in pursuing a Korean partner for the CAMLS program. He asked her to let him know her schedule when she returned and they'd set up time for a tour of the facility.

If you haven’t read Andy McCarthy’s column at PJ Media do yourself a favor and make the time.
There is treason afoot in OUR Capital, and OUR government does not feel the need to be accountable to US.
This has gotten so ridiculous it makes “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” look normal.
On the surface this seems reasonable but I’d wait until page two (or Page Six) before slapping anyone on the back.

Why in the world would general Allen send Jill Kelley an e-mail if he was receiving strange e-mails? I’ll bet he has a staff Officer with staff dedicated and trained to handling problems like this. Allen was trying to skate.

Jill Kelly was a social climber who took her ‘honorary consul’ too seriously. But that is nothing illegal or immoral. The media is focusing on her to take the focus off Obama.
