Florida socialite at center of general's sex scandal
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- When news broke about a Florida socialite's involvement in a sex scandal that brought down CIA Director David Petraeus, Jill Kelley was doing what she does best -- hosting a party.
But the children's birthday festivities abruptly ended Sunday as news vans descended on Kelley's home overlooking Tampa Bay.
Nearly all lines in the increasingly tangled sex scandal involving Petraeus lead back to Kelley, whose complaint about anonymous, threatening emails triggered the FBI investigation that led to the general's downfall. And now Kelley is in the middle of an investigation of the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan over alleged "inappropriate communications" between the two.
