Kelley’s Base Pass Suspended Amid Ongoing Petraeus Scandal

WASHINGTON (AP) — The military has suspended the Air Force base pass of the Tampa socialite who sparked an ongoing sex scandal .

Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Steven Warren says the decision to indefinitely suspend Jill Kelley’s pass to MacDill Air Force Base was made in the last couple of days.

Kelley’s complaints about threatening emails triggered the FBI investigation that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus and a probe into communications between her and the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan.

Warren said it was decided the pass suspension would be in the best interest of the Air Force base community. Kelley can still enter the base but now must report to the visitor center and sign in like everyone who doesn’t have a pass.
