The Daily Telegraph of London, citing an unnamed Republican source, reports it has learned Jill Kelley's financially-challenged twin sister, Natalie Khawam, once dated former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist.

Reached by phone, Crist said: "Consider the source."

"Didn't happen," he said. "I may have met her."

Crist said he met Jill Kelley and her husband Scott, and retired Gen. David Petreaus and wife Holly for a dinner at Bern's Steak House. He said Jill Kelley had arranged the dinner. Asked what he thought of Jill Kelley, Crist said: "I think she's a delightful person."

Today's Tampa Bay Times has more about the emails to Jill Kelley that are at the center of a CIA sex scandal that prompted the resignation of director David Petraeus and ensnared the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. John Allen, with a look at the financial troubles that Kelley and Khawam shared.
