    --She has hired an attorney to 'repair' her reputation--good luck with that.
    He alleges that some government entity leaked the fyi on her, violating his client's right to privacy. 'A victim'--all she did was report the harassing emails to the FBI, etc.

    --So. Korea revoked her honorary consul status. I didn't fully comprehend what she was doing for them--multibillion $$ deals of some kind--she was a liason between businessmen/investors and So Korea. She must be a brilliant businesswoman? She needs to focus on her own financial issues, or so it seems to me.

    --She can't enter MacDill AF base without an escort.

    --Wondering who will take her phone calls or respond to her emails now?

    and now this>>>

    So Sad: Jill Kelley Loses Her Honorary Vanity License Plates - The Feed - National Review Online

    In each clip shown on TV she was flipping her long brown hair. Dressed in the height of fashion. Then the phone call to '911'---'I have inviolability----diplomatic immunity...'

    Never again will she be able to say that.

    David Petraeus sex scandal a "blip" on his record, general's former Iraq aide says - CBS News

    I can't speak for others but I am not ready to 'forgive' all involved in this ridiculous escapade yet.

    ~~Just a 'blip' on General Petraeus' record. 'If his wife has forgiven him, who are we to judge?'~~

    2 comments from the linked article. Another was--'If we were to hold adultery against Gen Petraeus then we would have to hold over 50 percent of DC accountable...' something like that. 'No big deal.'

    In the 'great scheme' of things such an affair is not 'the end of the world'. Compared to Arnold Scharwzenegger's affair of ?over 20 years with his housekeeper and illegitimate child from that liason--this mess is not 'as bad'. In his wife's position I would be deeply hurt. It is my impression that although Bill and Hillary Clinton are not divorced--they lead separate lives. That is one way to be married --a 'partnership', a legal arrangement.

    The article mentioned that some believed Petraeus had a future in politics--could have had a shot at POTUS.

    I don't think I could/would ever support him after this. Not just the affair, the implications and inferences that can be derived from his prominent role in the Benghazi tragedy.

    The advice was--'Disappear, it's the holidays--a good time to get lost in the madding crowd. Go to Europe, where they aren't as offended by affairs and give interviews. Resurrect yourself...'

    That will probably work well for Petraeus.

    The same strategy is recommended for Paula Broadwell and Jill Kelley.


    Anyone who is so inclined can absolve any/all parties to the degree that is reasonable. For me, at present all I can see are gaping holes in character---like Swiss Cheese. Not much for me to respect---outstanding professional achievement and there are many who excel in ways that most of us cannot. Yet, reputations have been badly damaged and for some of us there is no 'repair' for that.
