Woman At Center Of Petraeus Scandal To Have Honorary Title Pulled
Jill Kelley, who figures prominently in the scandal that brought down David Petraeus is losing her honorary title.
Kelley misused her title as South Korean honorary consul by raising it in unspecified personal business dealings, a Foreign Ministry official in Seoul said. The official, who declined to be named because the matter is still being discussed, wouldn’t elaborate and said it’s not clear when the title will be revoked.
Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kyou-hyun told South Korean reporters during a visit to Washington that Kelley inappropriately used her title.
“It’s not suitable to the status of honorary consul that (she) sought to be involved in commercial projects and peddle influence,” Kim said, according to Yonhap news agency, the official news agency of South Korea.
