    "By the end of 2007, the charity had gone bankrupt, having conveniently spent exactly the same amount of money, $157,284, as it started with -- not a dollar more, according to its 990 financial form. Of that, $43,317 was billed as "Meals and Entertainment," $38,610 was assigned to "Travel," another $25,013 was spent on legal fees, and $8,822 went to "Automotive Expenses."
    The Kelleys also listed smaller expenses that appear excessive for a charity operating from a private home, including $12,807 for office expenses and supplies, and $7,854 on utilities and telephones.
    Jill Kelley's sister, Natalie Khawam, was listed as the only other officer of the charity. This past April, Khawam filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, listing more than $3.6 million in liabilities, including $53,000 owed to the Internal Revenue Service and $800,000 owed to her sister and brother-in-law."

    WTF? What kind of people were these generals cavorting with?

    Socialite at center of sex scandal calls 911 for diplomatic protection

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — When news vans camped outside her stately home, a Florida socialite tied to the Gen. David Petraeus sex scandal fell back on her informal credentials as a social ambassador for Tampa society and top military brass: She asked police for diplomatic protection.
    In the phone call to authorities, Jill Kelley, a party hostess and unofficial social liaison for leaders of the U.S. military's Central Command in Tampa, cited her status as an honorary consul general while complaining about news vans that had descended on her two-story brick home overlooking Tampa Bay.
    "You know, I don't know if by any chance, because I'm an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property. I don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well," she told the 911 dispatcher Monday....


    Plenty of other tacky details in the article, too.
    Bwuahahaha-- such conceit and hubris!

    This whole thing is going to blow up in Kelley's face. I fully recognize that she's entitled to report a perceived harrassment to the proper authorities, but she may well have gone overboard and/or overreacted. She probably thought that she had the gravitas to do what she did and to have the FBI respond the way it did (I understand that she recently called 911 to complain about the reporters outside her home, saying that she's an honorary consul general for S. Korea and had diplomatic "inviolability"). Now more personal dirt is coming out (thanks to the "generosity" of the media), and Kelley has effectively opened a pandora's box of personal family shit.

    What the hell is this all about?

    I don't really want to read or hear the news directly because it seems like gossip is better suited to this mess. I sensed that to begin with because it seemed out of character for a military man to resign over a piece of strange.

    Let's just hand this over to the tabloids and let DC get on with the economy.
