Woman Connected to Petraeus Scandal Seeks Privacy

WASHINGTON (AP) – Jill Kelley, the Florida woman who received harassing emails from David Petraeus‘ girlfriend, is acknowledging her friendship with the former CIA director and asking for privacy.

Kelley says she and her family “have been friends with General Petraeus and his family for over five years.”

She says she respects Petraeus’ privacy and wants the same for her own family.

Petraeus resigned Friday after admitting to an extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. The FBI learned of the affair as it was investigating emails sent by Broadwell to Kelley, who serves as an unpaid social liaison to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.

Kelley issued the statement through Smith and Company, a Washington communications and crisis management firm.
