Jill Kelley, Tampa socialite connected to Petraeus scandal, ends her silence



Jill Kelley, the woman who unwittingly triggered a scandal that ended the career of former CIA director David Petraeus, ended a long silence Tuesday, excoriating the media and Petraeus’ former mistress for upending her family’s life. In an interview with The Daily Beast and an opinion piece in the Washington Post, Kelley Tuesday took issue with everything from how she was portrayed as a “romantic rival” for Petraeus’ affections to media staking out her Bayshore Boulevard home. The comments are Kelley’s first since the scandal broke in November.
