A New York businessman says Tampa, Florida, socialite Jill Kelley asked him for an $80 million commission if she used her influence to win a South Korean business contract.
Kelley, who triggered an FBI investigation that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus, claimed she was a high-level representative of the South Korean government, says the businessman, Adam Victor.
In reality, according to the South Korean Foreign Ministry, Kelley holds a simple honorary title — “special consul” — which boasts no official responsibilities.
With the prospect of a commission on a $4 billion deal to provide natural gas, Kelley “tried to sell herself as something she was not,” Victor, president of TransGas Development Systems, told CNN. “I told her she was crazy.”
And just to let us know that things have truly hit rock bottom, Jill’s twin sister has hired Gloria Allred.
PS: Does anyone else find it somewhat disquieting that not even the director of the CIA has Fourth Amendment rights?
